Why full coach for Pantry Cars.
Our Pantry cars are known for supplying animal grade food to passengers mostly outsourced so why they require the full coach at all. Is there any scientific calculation to allot full coach to them. The contractor allot the pantry car seats to passengers at a premium an drunning staff uses it as a rest house. Ins stead of doing duties, they use pantry car as their gifted bed rooms. It is Railway within Raiway. Railway should limit teh size of Pantry car to half and teh saved space can be used for unreserved passengers , increasing Railway revenue. Railway considers canteen contractors as their most loved one illegitimate children and go to any extent to appease them afterall they are their own and share same DNA. more
Recently I came across a news that Railway is slowly converting LPG free pantry car in all the passengers trains across India and food preparation will be monitored online via live cameras which has already begun. The installation of cameras is in progress and it has been implemented also.
Yes i Do agree the food supply by railways pantry car is equal to garbage, that is why railway has allowed online food system app based. The process is a huge and demands high investment hence we will have to wait. So till then we avoid the railways pantry food at maximum level. more

COMPLAINTS SHOULD BE CENTRALIZED AND RESOLVED FORM THERE AND COMMUNICATED TO COMPLAINANT. COMPLAINT NO SHOULD BE DISPLAYED AT MANY LOCATIONS IN EVERY BOGEY OF EACH TRAIN AND ALSO ON ALL STATIONS. RAILWAYS ADMINISTRATION SHOULD FIX THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE LAPSE AND RECORD IT IN SERVICE RECORD OF THE DEFAULTER AND INFORM THE COMPLAINT CENTER ACCORDINGLY.
Pantry car is a must for trains and based on the journey time, ideally 12 hours or more, whether day or night journey and number of stops. Misuse to by arrested by squad checking. Ideally, pantry car should exist only to serve and not for cooking food as it is done in air travel. Fresh food can be arranged at specific stations enroute and served to passengers which would be hygeinic too provided it is in that way and packed. Generally, I noticed unhygienic condition in the existing pantry car. So railways can try out the views expressed here. more
