Catering Facility in Long Distance Trains

Catering services on trains are adequately organized either through a Pantry Car attached on them, or by existing Static Units at stations on which the trains have a stoppage. The attachment of pantry cars to trains is based on the factors such as operational feasibility due to existing load of the train, maximum load permitted on each section, priority of the train, journey time, other operational factors, commercial justification, availability of pantry cars and other exigencies etc. among others. Given this consideration, the decision to attach pantry cars in long distance trains is taken. However, catering services are being made available from static units to stations enroute for all trains including those which runs for more than 10 hrs.
This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways, Shri Bharatsinh Solanki in a written reply in Rajya Sabha today.
