If you are watching your weight, try travelling by Konkan Railways which is offering a range of low fat food options for passengers ranging from oatmeals to sprout chat. The service has been launched in select trains.

"There is a section of people who are conscious about their diet even while travelling," KRCL’s Public Relation Manager Baban Ghatge told PTI.

The diet food is really clicking and is currently introduced on Konkan Kanya Express and Mandovi Express on stations like Chiplun, Ratnagiri, Thivim, Karmali and Margao. The railway pantry offers many dishes without compromising on calories.

Juices, coconut water, green tea and soya milk in beverages are available in the train, he said. "For breakfast one can enjoy oatmeal, cornflakes, egg white omelet, dalia or wheat upma, fruit yogurt and others.

Veg and non-veg soups are also available on board. And if you still feel hungry, you can have grilled sandwiches, sprout chat, boiled vegetables and sugar free sweets served on your seat," Ghatge said. KRCL officials said the diet food concept was launched "keeping in mind the changing time."

The corporation, which will be celebrating its 21st foundation day tomorrow, has also added a feather to its cap by introducing a service for senior citizens free of cost.

Aptly named as 'Shravan Seva', the service provides free coolie services on major stations on select trains.
