NEW DELHI: TravelKhana.com, the first pioneer for enabling food ordering for travelers, today announced its tie up with Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) to offer customers delicious and hygienically-prepared fresh food for their train journeys.
The company’s services will soon be available on the IRCTC’s e-catering website.
Under the agreement, people can book their meals in advance on the Travelkhana’s website. Both the companies are working on integrating the service platforms so that the revenue sharing arrangement works as a part of the recent policy announced by the Indian Railways.
Travelkhana will start its services at the New Delhi and Hazrat Nizammudin railway stations on the E-catering system and has expressed its interest in starting its services on a total of 17 stations in the first phase.
“It is indeed an honour for us to be working with Railways through IRCTC as the partner of choice on their site. We have been working with Railways for a while to come out with a policy that will allow the passengers to be able to avail the service of their choice, rather than be limited and constrained by the licensed food suppliers,” said Co-Founder and CEO, TravelKhana, Pushpinder Singh.
“The association is a welcome step in this direction. We will continue to work for addressing the needs of the people by on the move by standardizing our services across the spectrum as well as extending our services to include local specialties as well address the needs of other types of travelers including suburban and bus travelers,” added Singh.
