Traveling by train is one of the most popular modes of transport in India, and for many, it can be a long journey. One of the most significant concerns for passengers on a long train journey is the availability of food. IRCTC’s eCatering service is the most convenient way for passengers to order food parcels in trains. If you are a frequent train traveler in India, then you have come to the right place. Here, we will take you through three different ways of ordering food on the train without any hassle using IRCTC’s eCatering service.
Ordering food parcels online
- IRCTC’s eCatering service allows passengers to order food parcels online using the mobile app, ‘Food on Track’ . Passengers simply have to open the app on their phone and enter their PNR (Passenger Name Record) number or train details to view the available food options. The app will display a wide range of food options and passengers can select the food items they want to order and add them to the cart. Once reviewed, passengers can pay for the food through the app itself using various payment options like net banking, debit card, credit card, and e-wallets. As soon as the payment is processed, the passengers will get a confirmation and they can enjoy delicious food from the comfort of their seats. The food parcel will be prepared by authorized vendors and will be delivered to the passengers’ seats by IRCTC’s catering staff. Calling the Toll-Free Number on the eCatering helpline.
- Another way to get food parcels on the train is by calling the eCatering helpline. Passengers can call the helpline number and place their food orders over the phone. The helpline staff will assist passengers in selecting the food items they want to order and customize their orders as per their preferences. Once the order is placed, passengers can pay for the food through various payment options and the meal will be delivered to the passengers’ seats by IRCTC’s catering staff. To get started with your food order on IRCTC eCatering, simply call on 1323. Ordering Food on the eCatering Website.
- IRCTC’s eCatering service also allows passengers to order their meals without any hassle through the eCatering website at www.ecatering.irctc.co.in . The website is easy to use and access and passengers have to follow the same steps for ordering food as on the mobile app. Some of the cuisines that are easily available on the eCatering website include North Indian, South Indian, Continental, Italian, and more.
