Train passengers may soon relish a rice-fish curry thali or vegetable biryani at major stations with the Railways mulling to introduce combo meals as part of its drive to make available quality food at affordable prices.
Termed 'combo meals', food items like rice and fish curry, 'chhole bhature', vegetable biryani and paratha omlette are being finalised to be made available at dedicated stalls in major stations.
"The prices have been tentatively fixed at Rs 20 per plate," said a source in the Railway ministry, adding a final decision on the rates will be taken shortly.
Railways is flooded with complaints about the absence of affordable food at railway premises besides poor quality of the food available in trains and stations.
There will be dedicated stalls bearing signboards displaying food items and tariff prominently at platforms for passengers, sources said.
Meanwhile, IRCTC has submitted a proposal to the Railway Board to change the catering policy.
