Setting out on a train journey only to discover that your train has been delayed by hours can be a nightmare. Passengers are inconvenienced by the unprecedented train delays, but Indian Railways makes every effort to compensate them. Train delays can occur for a variety of reasons, ranging from excessive fog to operational work on train tracks. As a result, to compensate for such situations, railways have a provision for providing free meals to passengers. Express trains such as the Rajdhani Express, Duronto Express, and Shatabdi Express are required by law to provide free meals to passengers if the train is delayed for more than two hours.
The premium locomotives of the Indian Railways are the Rajdhani Express, Duronto Express, and Shatabdi Express, and they provide the best services to their passengers. To maintain the image, Indian Railways ensures that these express trains arrive on time; otherwise, passengers are entitled to a free meal and a drink if these premium trains are running late.
Passangers also provided with option to choose their favourite meal
Further, passengers have the option to choose meals (breakfast, lunch, evening snack, or dinner) depending on which time of the day the passengers are travelling.
