railway board catering open

The Railway Board has given its nod for the opening of catering and vending units at stations but said that food plazas and refreshment rooms will open only for takeaways, an order said on Wednesday.

These units will include shops for selling packaged goods, essential items, chemist shops, bookstalls, and others which were shut soon after the coronavirus crisis hit the country.

The order stated that the railway zones have been seeking necessary guidelines from the Board for opening of catering units at stations.

"Zonal Railways and IRCTC are advised to take necessary action for the opening of all Static Catering and Vending Units at Railway Stations with immediate effect. In the case of Food Plaza and Refreshment Rooms, booked items may be served as takeaway only, with no sitdown eating arrangements in place, the order from the railway board said.
