Enjoy Desi Food - IRCTC Home Made 'Food In Train' Service

The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) is starting to provide home made food i.e 'Desi Food' in train to passengers. This service will be operated by local food makers and not a multi food chain company.

IRCTC has signed a deal with women self help group. Under this deal various women help groups will be able to post their menus on IRCTC's website along with the rate.
