Good News: Navratri Thali To Be Served In Indian Railways

After a two-year pause brought on by the Covid-19 outbreak, India is back in form to resume its Navratri and Durga Puja celebrations in full swing starting from September 26. During this period, people would be moving over to visit their loved ones and celebrate various festivals. However, it can be a little challenging to bring fasting food everywhere and break the fast at the appropriate time if you are fasting. In light of this, the Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) would operate special trains as well as provide "Vrat thalis" for travellers who are fasting. Passengers will be provided meals without onion or garlic while travelling during Navratri in 2022. Call 1323 to place an order if you want to take advantage of this promotion. This service will be offered by IRCTC at 400 stations. 

While this is a piece of good news for people who are fasting and travelling by train. IRCTC's food menu has an initial starting price of Rs 99. Please keep in mind that the special Navratri fare will only be offered on IRCTC trains with e-catering options. 

Before you order here is the menu, Aloo chaap and Sabudana tikki may be found on the list for starters. With parathas, the main dish consists of paneer makhmali and sabudana khichdi. There are also other menu options, like Kofta Curry and Sabudana Khichri Navratri Thali. 

How to book 

In only three easy actions, passengers can take advantage of this exclusive Navratri 2022 vrat thali: 

Passengers must input their PNR number in the "Choose the Outlet" step before beginning their search for nearby eateries. 

Go to Step 2 and select "Complete the Order." Here, you may select your cuisine and make a reservation while paying online or opting for cash-on-delivery. Your seat will receive the food delivery. 

We think IRCTC wants its customers to have a comfortable journey; a month ago, they also unveiled a WhatsApp option for ordering food. We value the initiatives being undertaken. Hopefully, this goes well and will continue to be used for Navratri in the future.
