The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) and Mumbai Central railway stations could soon become the country’s first Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI)-certified ‘Eat Right Stations’.
The food quality regulator along with Central Railway (CR), Western Railways (WR) and Indian Railways Catering Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), will train employees; inspect, certify and rate the standard of food at both these stations.
