Being able to Order Khana Online on a train is a Boon

by eCatering irctc Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation

The Indian Railways is among the largest rail networks of the world. It connects a multitude of destinations across territories, connecting every corner of the country to the other. It provides a cheap, comfortable and effective means of travel to the average Indian citizen who might not be affluent enough to book a flight ticket every time he needs to reach a particular destination. In addition, the facility of being able to order Khana online, has made rail travel all the more attractive for passengers.


Why Order Khana Online when on a Train?


Every long distance train is equipped with a pantry that caters to basic food requirements of passengers. You can order basic meals, beverages, snacks and sometimes even deserts from the pantry officials. However, owing to the fact that the pantry often has limited reserves, choices are minimal. You need to choose from a couple of options extended before you. Even though you may not like what you have ordered you have no other option but to have whatever is available.


Also, the cost of food is pretty high. Considering that you have no other way out but to order from the in house staff, you may end up paying high charges for food that may not be suited to your taste. Therefore, other external options would always be welcome.


The hygiene standards of pantries on board have always been questioned. Often, lack of cleanliness and basic food preparation standards leads to large scale health problems like food poisoning, diarrhea, vomiting and other gastrointestinal abnormalities post consumption. Passengers often seek a healthier option when on the move. This is where the facility to order khana online comes as a boon.


How do you order khana online?


Food can be ordered online through several websites these days. You need to select one that’s reliable. It’s important to perform a research before you can actually proceed to order. You will be required to fill in your details of travel, including your personal details, your travel details and your food preferences. Do not forget to mention where you want the delivery. For instance if you wish to have food delivery in train at Kanpur, you need to mention the same, specifically. Your order needs to be confirmed by making the payment.


Once your order has been confirmed, you will be provided with confirmation details. That’s it! The food, ordered as per your choice, will be delivered to your seat at the station. You can enjoy a meal of your choice at competitive rates, without having to venture out of your compartment. Being able to order khana online offers you sheer unbelievable convenience that your co passengers would be envious of!


You can order vegetarian thalis, snacks, savories or sweets and even choose to dig into a local specialty, if you wish to.


Next time you book your rail tickets, considering assessing options for online food ordering at your preferred stations instead of depending on your in house pantry. You can even do away with carrying hefty food baskets from home and travel light and hassle free instead.
