Indian Railways offers fresh meals to its passengers with the assistance of Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC). IRCTC is actually a subsidiary venture of Indian Railways to grant a fresh meal service for its express trains. The luxury and express trains of Indian Railways serve various dishes owing to the excellent services provided by the IRCTC. Well-known for changing the way of Railway ticketing, IRCTC has initiated the online rail ticket booking in India by means of its own website.


Not only online, IRCTC has also come a long way and made booking of Railway tickets possible through different means like phones, SMS etc. With no hassles at all, the users of this service obtain their tickets at their doorstep. To keep the customers at convenience, IRCTC addresses online the queries regarding accommodation availability, passenger status, train schedule etc. The Computerized Reservation Services have made the commuters' life comfortable.


In recent times, IRCTC has instigated a loyalty programme for the regular users of its services. This programme is known as 'Shubhyatra'. Due to this, IRCTC has also launched online services for booking of Mumbai Suburban Season Tickets. Within a short duration of getting online, IRCTC has managed to develop into the largest and the fastest growing e-commerce website throughout Asia-Pacific.
