Indian Railways is famous all over the world. Crores of people travel by train every day to go from one state to another and from one city to another. That is why Indian Railways is also called the lifeline of the country. In today's time, almost everyone can easily reach from one place to another by train for very little money.

If anyone wants to have tea or food while travelling on the train, then one can easily order it by ordering from the pantry. But many people feel that the price of things like tea etc. found on the train is high. In such a situation, a new guideline has been issued by the Indian Railways, under which you can enjoy tea breakfast or dinner on the train for very little money. Let's know about it.

What is the new rule?

Actually, under the new rule issued by IRCTC, you may have to pay less and more money for tea-breakfast and dinner. If you pay for tea-snack or dinner together while booking the ticket, then you can get things at a lower price. If you do not book breakfast etc with the ticket and order on what is the difference between before and now?

Let us tell you that if you do not book breakfast with tickets on Rajdhani and Shatabdi trains, then you have to pay more money. For example, if you book breakfast with a ticket, then you will have to pay Rs 105. If you do not book the food with the ticket and order during the journey, then you will have to pay Rs 155 for the same breakfast. Let us tell you that this facility can be availed in 2AC/3A/CC coaches. 

Booking food with ticket booking will cost less money

Yes, if you take food along with booking tickets on Rajdhani and Shatabdi trains, then you will pay less money. Similarly, if you travel on the Vande Bharat train and book food with a ticket then you will have to pay less money. Like-
