Happy Navratri: Now, order Navratri-special food on Indian Railways trains
Navratri is here. Fasting, as we know, is commonly practised during the 9-day Navratri festival. However, fasting during travel can be quite a hassle. That's why, as a respite, IRCTC has come up with an on-the-go Navratri special food ordering service for Indian Railways passengers. Here's more on this.
IRCTC is making available Navratri special meals to the passengers at select Railways stations only. These include Ambala, Jaipur, Nagpur, Itarsi, Jhansi, Nasik, Ratlam, Daund, Mathura, Nizamuddin and Lucknow.
1) You can order Navratri special meals either through IRCTC's e-catering website or via the 'Food on Track' app. 2) You will have to pre-book their food at least 2 hours before the scheduled departure time of train. 3) You'll need a valid PNR while booking. 4) The payment can be made either while booking or at the time of food delivery.
Taking into account the special needs of devotees during Navratri fasting, only 'Satvik' diet will be offered to the passengers. The food shall be prepared using sabudana, kuttu ka atta, sendha namak, and specified vegetables only. Mainly, fruit chaat, Navratri-thali and lassi will be offered.
