Traveling by Rajdhani Express, Shatabdi Express, and Duronto trains will be more expensive as the Railway Board has chosen to raise the price of meals (onboard these trains), resulting in a slight hike in their fares.
In its new order, the Railway Board stated that a cup of tea will cost Rs 35-an increase of Rs 6 in first-class AC and executive class.
“Price of breakfast has been raised by Rs 7 and it will now cost Rs 140 and with an increase of rs 15, dinner will cost Rs 245,” the order added.
“In second class AC, third class AC and chair car, price of tea have been raised by Rs 5 and it will now cost Rs 20. Breakfast, up by Rs 8, will now cost Rs 105,” the order added.
“Price of dinner has been increased by Rs 10 and it will now be priced at Rs 185,” the RB order said.
The order also stated that regional flavored snacks will also be introduced and will be available at Rs 50, including GST, for 350 grams.
“IRCTC shall be accountable for providing the newly introduced menu options in a way that the quantity and quality are commensurate with the tariff and no undue benefit is passed on to the service provider,” the order read.
