Railway passengers can avail Food for free – But there is a catch


We know the quality and cost of the food available at the Railway station. Now, it has changed a lot in terms of quality and pricing as well.

Many new features also got introduced for ordering food online.

Something different gonna happen

This time passengers can enjoy a free meal inside their trains, but there is a catch. However, there is only some change to avail free food to your seat.

Avail free food to your seats

We usually tend to book the railway tickets using IRCTC platform. But instead of booking using IRCTC, you need to take the different platform for booking your tickets.

You need to book a ticket using EasyMyTrip and you can avail free food.

However, the food partnering of IRCTC is RelFood from which you will be getting free food.

Cities with the Free Offer meal

Almost they have covered all the important cities and it takes a lot of efforts to do this.

You can see the full list of the cities here.

Reason for getting Free food

You won’t get this offer every time as it is the special offer provided on the occasion of the Mahatma Gandhi which is on October 2nd.

On this occasion, you will get only vegetarian food available on this day.

Preparation for this occasion

All the necessary instructions were given to the IRCTC operating and also to the zonal zones to distribute the free meals.

If your journey starts on October – 1st and ends on October -2nd. You can select both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food on 1st but not on the next day.

Remember, you will be able to get the free meal only on October – 2nd.

Food Menu other works for the occasion

The special free menu on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti will be stuffed parathas, kulchas, paneer dishes and varieties of desserts and many more.

Not only this, but Railway will also launch the cleanness drives to educate the people to reduce the use of plastics.

The drive will start from September 15 and it ends on October -2 which gonna be a valuable time for the education.

Place of the museum

Digital museums will be at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT), Thane and Lonavala railway stations.

In the museum, you will get to see the life of the freedom fighter, Mahatma Gandhi and as well as the history of the Railways.


This step has a huge impact on humanity as well as to help the poor. Along with the cleanliness drive, we can learn many ways and can go with a positive direction towards saving the environment.

Will keep you updated for more details.
