IRCTC is in the process of placing a QR code on the food packet from the base kitchen of Rajendra Nagar. An official said that along with online monitoring of the base kitchen, the QR code will assure the passengers that their food is completely of best standard and quality. Passengers will have no illusions about how right they’re eating. A railway official said “At present, food is made only for passengers of premium trains in the base kitchen, but in the coming time, QR codes can also be imposed on the food items of trains and station stalls”.
Information about the operation of the pantry car in trains is with the private agency. But the contract on its monitoring is provided by IRCTC only. IRCTC decides what the passengers have to give in the food and what not. The contracting agency has to follow the IRCTC rules. It’s the IRCTC’s first priority to make the best service and best quality food available to the passengers. The QR code scanning initiatives are also being generated under this system.
