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

Food quality in 1-2 trains is not the overall indication. The quality is certainly very bad and we can debate whether we at-all need it.
Morning breakfast or tea coffee is far better outside train having more choices . With present outsourcing facility overall the train food has become almost irrelevant and costlier than outside sources.
If Corruption and nepotism in Railways is reduced we can get even cheaper direct delivery food in trains (why the rate card in much higher than the restaurant even for the well-known brands unless Railway is taking a huge commission from them without doing anything?) more  
Some of the long distance train, they serve Hot morning breakfast/Tea Coffee, which is definitely not a bad quality. One can find good quality food in Bangalore Jaipur Train, elsewhere it is Hopeless. 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  
Even though pantry car is there , outsider also selling food in the train. more  
When ready food packets are served on your seat, why a Pantry Car ? Rail Babus in Dilli may be getting pass back. more
