No bill for food on trains? Have it for free! IRCTC staff to sport “No Bill – The Food is Free” on uniforms

No more overcharging for food on Indian Railways trains! A few months ago Railway Minister Piyush Goyal had said that passengers on Indian Railways trains need not pay for the food they are purchasing onboard, if the vendor is unable to furnish a bill.

So, if you are a frequent traveller on Indian Railways, you would be glad to know that you can have your meal for free if you do not receive a bill for your food from the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC).
