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

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  
Don't underestimate the people who are cooking, handling and serving the foods to the passengers that they are untrained and do not know as to how these are to be handled and perform their duties in handling the foods intended to be consumed by human being. They are well trained as well as are aware about the importance of maintaining the cleanliness and saving the foods from becoming contaminated from insects and/or other sources. But these people display a very negative approach in discharging their duties because of the failure of the concerned authorities to make regular supervision and to initiate timely action against those found guilty of mischievous acts. However, we, the passengers are equally responsible for promoting their misdeeds by keeping our eyes closed and lack of inclination to protest on sight. more
