Train 18 IRCTC
It has already been announced that Train 18 passengers will not be able to 'opt out' of meals, unlike other premium trains such as Shatabdi Express, Rajdhani Express and Duronto Express where travellers can choose not to take catering services. However, the passengers travelling the last leg on the route of the semi-high speed train - Allahabad to Varanasi - will have the choice of opting out of the meals provided by the Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), in advance while booking their tickets.
