Now, passengers can rely on KFC to deliver their favourite meals while travelling via the Indian Railways. Under an e-catering initiative, the internationally popular fast food chain has tied up with IRCTC to start a delivery service for passengers July 20 onwards.

Presently, this facility is available only on 12 trains passing through New Delhi railway station.

However, it will be expanded to Vishakhapatnam, Hyderabad (Kacheguda) and Bangalore (Yeshwantpur) stations over the next 10 days, the statement added.

"Consumers will have to visit the IRCTC website or call on 18001034139 (Toll Free) to place their order. A password will then be sent by KFC to the consumer's mobile phone which will have to be mentioned at the time of delivery," it said.

The service will initially be limited to trains which do not have pantry cars and subsequently would be expanded to trains like Rajdhani and Duronto.

E-catering service is a joint effort from KFC and IRCTC to provide food to the passengers on trains.

"As a much-loved restaurant brand, we think that this initiative gives us a great opportunity to bring the craveable taste and quality of KFC to our fans, even when they are travelling. We intend to expand the service to other stations over the next few days," KFC India chief marketing officer Dhruv Kaul said.

KFC Corporation is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands and has 19,400 outlets in 120 countries.
