Railway Meal To Have Quantity And Suppliers Detail

The letter, which was issued yesterday, said the guidelines should be implemented with immediate effect.

Railway Minister has asked officials to ensure that meals served on board trains carry information about quantity and the contractor supplying it, as the national carrier continues efforts to improve catering services.

In a letter addressed to all zonal general managers, the railway board has said that food served to passengers has the name of the supplier or contractor, weight, date of packing and a distinct symbol indicating if it is vegetarian or non-vegetarian.

A letter from Additional member of railway board Sanjiv garg stated that "Honorable Minister of Railways has decided that each food box in which food is packed and sold on trains must have these details,"

The letter, which was issued yesterday, said the guidelines should be implemented with immediate effect.

The communication comes days after another letter was sent to the IRCTC and all general managers of Zonal Railways on the instructions of Goyal, asking them to crackdown on overcharging by catering contractors and staff.

These measures come in the backdrop of a CAG report earlier this year which was severely critical of meals served by the railways.
