Food Storage in premium trains

even though IRCTC is making food now, the railway employees are pathetic at handling it.

I suggest minister and top officials go into 4-5 trains over the course of a quarter and eat the paneer and other vegetables served and then report to people if u had upset stomach, diarrohea etc.

There is serious need to train the attendents in how to store and keep food and how to keep it away from insects and toilet bacteria.

other members may please share views. I know through this circle lots of things have been fixed so I am hopeful more

You would get frustrated if you order for tea/coffee in pot(Thermos) which was a standard practice even three decades ago. Now you have to remain satisfied in sugar laden tea/coffee - although the same may be forbidden for many passengers (being cardiac and/or diabetic patients). There has been no result - although the matter has been posted in the 'Local Circle' on multiple occasions, and written complaints made direct to the IRCTC. more  
Most unhygienic handling of food in railways. Authorities should act fast to rectify the situation. more  
It is 100% true. Railways should verify the matter and take immediate steps to stop all such in-hygienic practices. more  
The Railway authorities should look into this chronic problem more  
It is the reults of "Under water currents" since decades. Leave aside Minister, even the Railway officials does not turnto inspect the Quality & Status of the food and services rendered to customers - unless their very interest gets delayed.

On several station railsway staffers are running several stalls in messy conditions on benami names since decades. more
