  10. Dear Sir,
    I travelled from KOL to LKO on 7/7/16 in Jammu Tavi Exp. and I travelled from LKO to HWH on 9/7/16 in Upasna Exp. Both the Times we were four people travelling in 2AC. Both times problems faced by us -

    1. The food attendant refused to show menu and prices and told that they don't have a menu.
    2. The price for Veg meal was Rs. 120/- .
    Items provided in the meal was -
    1 dal
    1 mixed veg
    1 paneer sabzi
    1 rice
    3 nos. Chapati
    1 small packet achaar
    1 250ml glass of water

    On asking why it was so expensive the pantry car manager replied -
    We charge the meal as per ala carte menu (which too he refused to show) and also informed me that the contractor has paid a bribe of Rs. Six Crore to get the contract thus they are bound to charge the passengers extra to cover their investment.

    I agree Railways have started a complaint redressal phone number and we can register complains online but - the number is never connected through I tried at least 5 times in both the cases and also during journey it is really difficult to get a proper internet connection to lodge a complaint.

    Sir, please see to it that matter is adressed and the involved caterers / contractors are fined accordingly.

  11. Catering personnel in Garib Rath train charge exorbitant prices for food and beverages served on board and timings are very inconvenient.

  12. Dear irctc,
    While I appreciate ur efforts in making things as clear as possible I still feel u guys are doing enough.
    The customers are not at all aware of the rates they are being fleeced by your guys regularly there was one sticker that was displayed in the compartment which supposedly should display the rates and complaint no. But it was scratched out I was given the egg biryani without water and was charged 60rs I think u guys should make sincere efforts to stop fleecing customers or stop this nonsense of showing that u care
