Choose your menu on board, pay by card in select trains

NEW DELHI: Passengers on 25 trains can now choose their meals from a pre-loaded menu and pay through credit or debit cards without worrying about being overcharged or having to shell out the exact amount for their food, rail officials have said.

The facility, recently put into effect, will cover all zones in a phased manner, they said.

“The vendor will have a POS machine with pre-loaded software showing the passenger the menu as well as the prices. These cannot be fiddled with,” a senior official said.

The prices will be fixed and passengers can pay for their meals with their cards, he added.

“This gives passengers three advantages – the food will be from an authorised vendor, they will get the meal at a fixed price and would not have to worry about giving the exact amount in cash,” the official said. (AGENCIES)
