THE INDIAN Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) plans to hire a fresh contractor to supply food in the premium Tejas Express by August, railway officials said. Food provided by only one contractor will then be made available across the entire route.
At present, while breakfast for the journey towards Karmali is supplied from the base kitchen at Chhatarapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), food for the remaining route is supplied from the base kitchen at Ratnagiri . As per the initial menu proposed, an effort was made to provide food famous in the Konkan belt.
“It is our aim to serve delicacies originating from the Konkan belt to the passengers. The new contractor will be licenced to handle the catering for the entire route of the train.
