Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) recently tweeted out their menu along with the cost to ensure that the people are not charged extra. IRCTC has also informed the passengers to report to them in case of any discrepancies.

The people traveling in Express and Mail trains will henceforth be charged Rs 7 for both tea and coffee, veg breakfast for Rs 30, non-veg breakfast for Rs 35, vegetarian lunch for Rs 50 and non-vegetarian lunch for Rs 55.

The Railways have also affirmed that they have been working round the clock 24/7 for the public and also promised to provide good quality food.

Yesterday at the round table conference on catering, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said, "We have announced a new catering policy. There were many complaints against catering service. There were complaints against those who have got the catering responsibility under our earlier catering policy. We have decided to provide good quality food to our passengers and for that we have decided to have base kitchens at several places so that fresh food can be picked up at every two-hours of travel."
