In the meantime, the Railways has also resumed the service of cooked food in trains after keeping it suspended for nearly two years since the outbreak of the COVID pandemic. The cooked food services started from February 14, 2022.
Even though the catering services were suspended in March 2020, the IRCTC had started serving ready-to-eat meals on trains from August 2021. However, the cooked food services were later restored on 80 per cent of trains in January this year.
The Indian Railways said it is working on introducing a set of new reforms in its catering services to improve the quality of the food being served on trains on board.
