Did you know you can order food online on your train journey

The Indian Railways is well-known for long-distance travel. Trains in India go from one region of the nation to another. To provide comfort to passengers, Indian Railways has installed a separate pantry car, and certain trains, such as the Rajdhani, also provide meals at no extra fee.

What if you don’t want to eat the train cuisine and instead want to eat something like a burger, dosa, or Chinese food?

Thankfully, you can now buy meals online through IRCTC’s e-catering service and have them delivered to your berth at the station of your choosing. Let’s go deeper with Technical Dost.
