Economy food, water at railway stations of Waltair Division

VISAKHAPATNAM: The Railway Board announced the provision of economy meals called Janta Khana and drinking water at platforms near the general seating coaches at the railway stations.

These special counters have been opened for general class passengers at various stations of Waltair Division including Visakhapatnam, Vizianagaram, Srikakulam, Rayagada, and Koraput in the first phase.

More stations are being identified and will soon be covered for the provision of economy meals and packaged drinking water at general class coach locations.

Generally, these coaches are located at either end of a train and passengers have to rush for their needs. Hence to facilitate the service of economy meals, snacks and drinking water to passengers, special care has been taken to put up stalls near these coach locations.

Divisional railway manager of Waltair Saurabh Prasad has advised all the departments to take enough care for the provision of such stalls at identified stations.
