Northern Rly starts Rs 20 cr catering project

September 2011
The Northern Railways has launched a Rs 20 crore culinary project, a first since it wrested the rights to cater on trains from Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) last year.

The Northern Railways general manager recently sanctioned the sum estimated to be spent in the first phase of the project, expected to be completed in a year. In this phase, seven mega kitchens will be set up at New Delhi, Nizamuddin, Jammu Tawi, Amritsar, Chandigarh, Lucknow and Varanasi stations. The equipment for the 11 big and small base kitchens alone will cost over Rs 7 crore.
