    The IRCTC is also deploying its officials on-board these trains to monitor the catering services. They are being provided with tablets which will be used for collection of passenger feedback.

    The service providers managing the onboard services are also being trained at the IRCTC central kitchen at Noida for usage of the POS machine.
