A panel of catering experts has informed IRCTC that its meal trays are overladen — holding 900 grams of food per meal against 750 grams in a normal Indian diet. IRCTC is making significant losses on its onboard catering services as it gets Rs 112 per passenger meal, whereas the actual cost of a full meal has risen to more than Rs 150 per plate, according to an ET report.
