Mamata wants good food on trains

“I have told the Railway Board to improve the quality of food,” she said.

Banerjee said the Budget would strike a balance between the “commercial and human face” of the railways and profiteering would not be at the cost of passenger amenities.
“Railways has two sides – commercial and human face. We have to maintain both the sides,” Banerjee said.

Indicating that issues like serving quality food and ensuring passenger amenities lie close to her heart, Banerjee said: “There should be no compromise on the quality of food. The menu should comprise both national as well as regional choices.” The Minister’s reaction comes amid mounting criticism of Railways doing precious little to improve the quality of food served in trains.

Railways are already working on a mechanism to help travellers place the order of their choice beforehand over phone so that a wide range of delicacies can be served to them apart from the customary dishes.
