A train journey can be one of the most memorable experiences of one’s lifetime. The ever changing landscape, the cacophony at bustling railway station, the overwhelming sights and smells add a distinct charm to train journeys. But when one is travelling for leisure, certain worries should be left behind like where to order food from. Keeping this in mind, here are three ways through which you can order delicious meals on the train without ever leaving the comfort of your train seat or berth.
- ‘Food on Track’ App: One of the easiest ways to order food delivery in a train at Patna railway station, New Delhi railway station, Jaipur railway station or any other major railway station across India is through IRCTC’s ‘Food on Track’ app. This user-friendly mobile app is available on both Play Store and App Store and is compatible with both android and iOS smartphones. In this digital age, everything from shopping to paying is done online. So, why not enjoy the convenience of a mobile app for ordering food delivery on the train and that too on your train seat or berth! The Covid-19 pandemic has made all of us wary of unnecessary contact and using an app to order food and complete payment online is one of the safest ways to get delivery of hygienic food. IRCTC ‘Food on Track’ app users can choose from multiple payment modes and go cashless to avoid coming in contact with any frequently touched surfaces.
- Call on 1323: Don’t want to browse through all the food options on your smartphone? Simply call our toll-free number 1323 and place your food order. You can start by entering your PNR, selecting the station where you want the food delivered and then choose a meal of your choice. If your parents are frequent train travellers and not very tech-savvy, then this is the perfect way for them to order healthy and hygienic food at Patna railway station, Agra railway station and any other railway stations across the country they are travelling through. A preferred language such as English or Hindi can be chosen at the beginning of the call and the simple instructions can be followed easily to complete the order booking. If you choose this option, you will be unable to select any online payment mode and can also choose to pay at the time of delivery using cash.
- IRCTC eCatering Website: The official website i.e www.ecatering.irctc.co.in is another quick and easy way to order veg food at Patna railway station or non-veg food at Patna railway station or any other railway station without any hassle. The website can be accessed on a browser through a mobile phone, laptop or tablet. All you need to do is visit the website, enter PNR, choose from 500+ list of IRCTC eCatering’s vendor partners or restaurants, place the order and wait for it to be delivered directly to your train seat or berth. IRCTC’s effective online delivery service ensures that your meals are prepared fresh and delivered hot.
In a the post-Covid world, returning to the old normal any time soon seems highly unlikely. With the new-found realization of the impact of a pathogen like the Coronavirus, an increased awareness of personal hygiene is a must.
