The Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Company (IRCTC) has decided to reopen all food stalls under five divisions of the East Central Railway – Danapur, Pt Deendayal Upadhaya, Sonepur, Samastipur, and Dhanbad – starting January 15.

“All Covid-19 health protocols were being strictly followed in the food stalls and refreshment rooms”, said IRCTC.

The IRCTC PR officer, A K Jha said the food stalls and refreshment rooms had been closed because of coronavirus lockdown.

“The railways is currently running about 80 pairs of special trains from different places under the ECR jurisdiction. However, catering service has been stopped in view of the pandemic. The reopening of food stalls and refreshment rooms at all major stations of the ECR will, therefore, come as a big relief for passengers,” Jha said.


Moreover, according to sources, To improve its e-catering services, IRCTC has planned to team up with self-help groups (SHGs) run by women. By this, IRCTC plans to empower women in the catering segment.

Passengers can choose meal or food items offered by SHGs and place their orders as per their choice.
