Low-Quality Food on Train Leads to Protest


Upset over sub-standard food and service inside a special train run by the IRCTC, hundreds of commuters staged a rail block at Kalyan, halting the train for nearly 45 minutes.

According to GRP officials, when the train, booked by a group to travel from Ahmedabad to Pune, reached Kalyan around 8.00pm on Tuesday, passengers came out on and started protesting against the railway administration.Sources claimed the passengers protested against the railway administration for overcharging them for booking the train that includes "low-quality" food.

However, CR officials, requesting anonymity, said the that train was booked by the IRCTC and the latter was responsible for the services .

The train finally departed at 8.54pm. Other trains crossing Kalyan station at that time were diverted to other platforms and hence no services were affected.
