Rly to offer economy meal

After the popularity of ‘janta meal’, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Limited (IRCTC) is all set to launch Janahaar Plazas offering cooked food at affordable prizes at railway stations across in the country.

Under the plan, Chandigarh , Ludhiana and Jammu would be among the few stations where these plazas would be introduced in the first phase by March 2010.

“These air-conditioned plazas, to be operated and managed by the IRCTC, would have both standing and seating arrangements. It has been decided that the food platter served at these plazas would be below Rs 20. These plazas have been conceptualized keeping in mind the scarcity of eateries for the public including the general-class passengers,” said IRCTC Group General Manager (Catering) Aneet Dulat.

Though the menus for these plazas have not been decided yet, it is expected that the food would be region specific with a touch of the local cuisine. For instance, the menu will offer karhi chawal or rajma chawal or chana kulcha in the Northern railways section.
