Pantry Cars in Long Distance Passenger Trains

Presently, 316 pairs of Express trains are scheduled to run for more than 24 hours on various routes in the country. Attachment of pantry cars to the trains is based on various factors such as operational feasibility, priority of the train, journey time, commercial justification, availability of pantry cars, load of the train, etc. among others. As per the new Catering Policy 2010, the priority for allotment of pantry cars is premier, superfast and mail/express trains with running time more than 24 hours each way and trains provided with vestibuled coaches.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways, Shri E. Ahamed in a written reply in Rajya Sabha today.
