With the aim of supplying and delivering pre-ordered meals on trains, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has partnered with the food ordering platform Swiggy.

IRCTC, which offers Indian Railways ticketing, catering, and tourism services, announced the partnership with Swiggy on Thursday in a filing with the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). The parent company of Swiggy, Bundl Technologies Private Limited, will facilitate the partnership.

“The IRCTC has tied up with Bundl Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (Swiggy Foods) for supply and delivery of pre-ordered meals through IRCTC e-catering portal as a PoC (proof of concept),” an IRCTC statement read.

The service will be launched gradually and initially be accessible at four stations: Bengaluru, Bhubaneswar, Vijayawada, and Visakhapatnam.

However, since the filing only indicates that the facility will be introduced “soon,” it is unknown when it will be launched.

For the provision and delivery of food that has been pre-ordered at several train stations, including Kanpur, Lucknow, New Delhi, Prayagraj, and Varanasi, IRCTC already has a partnership with Zomato. October of last year saw the signing of the contract.

How to order outside food on trains?

To access a range of dining options for their trip, passengers must first enter their PNR (Passenger Name Record) number. After making their decisions, they need to place their order and decide whether to pay online or with cash on delivery. After that, the meals will be brought right to the passengers’ seats.
