Catering services are proved in all weekly/bi-weekly and regular trains through pantry cars and in cases where trains re not provided with pantry car, the catering services are provided through Train Side Vending or through static catering units at en-route stations. At present there are 302 pantry cars and 112 Train Side Vending contracts which provide catering service in trains including Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duronto express trains.

A new Catering Policy, 2010 has been introduced, which has an all inclusive approach wherein from the least advantaged passenger to the relatively affluent are provide catering services in a socially responsible manner. The Policy emphasizes on provision of quality and hygienic food at economic price. A uniform tariff and menu has been notified by the Indian Railways for meals for items like Standard meals, Breakfast, Tea/Coffee. Jan-Ahaar outlets have been set up for sale of Janta Meals and low cost affordable regional cuisine. Supervision and monitoring has been strengthened through an institutional mechanism put in place by the zonal railways by deploying railway personnel, who check quality and hygiene and take corrective action in a time bound manner through regular, surprise and periodical inspections.
