New Delhi, July 21: Government auditors have caught up with passengers long familiar with the perils of ordering from railway kitchens or the platform food kiosks.
A Union government audit report released in Parliament today observes that the railways are not effectively using checks and controls to ensure that pantry cars and kiosk contractors serve quality food, and in the prescribed helpings.
The audit found pantry staff in at least 22 trains, including three terminating in Calcutta, using unpurified tap water to prepare coffee, tea or soup despite water purifiers being available. The

base kitchen serving a Kanpur-New Delhi-Kanpur train used the railways' general water supply for cooking.
Across multiple other stations and trains, passengers received slightly lower-than-due quantities of ice cream, curd or pooris, or were served stale milk, sweets with fungal growth or other food that failed quality tests.
Audit teams from the comptroller and auditor general's office had collaborated with railway officials to inspect 74 stations and 80 trains across India between July and October last year to assess the catering services.
The joint inspections revealed that before being served to passengers, food lay unprotected from flies, insects and dust at Agra, Pathankot and Titlagarh stations and on four trains: the Ajmer-Sealdah Express, Bikaner-Coimbatore Express, Nizamuddin-Goa Express and the Nizamuddin-Sampark Kranti Express.
The 22 trains where unpurified water went into soup and beverages included the Kolkata Rajdhani, Howrah-Ranchi Shatabdi and the Howrah-New Jalpaiguri Shatabdi.
Cockroaches and rats infested the pantry cars of the New Delhi-Sealdah Duronto and the Nizamuddin-Chennai Duronto. Flavoured milk with expired shelf life was sold at Bokaro Steel City station, and unsold parathas lying in a base kitchen for Kanpur trains were likely to be recycled to passengers.
"Such findings are not surprising; the regular travellers know this," said Omkarnath Tiwari, president of the Railway Passengers Association in Vadodara, an organisation of about 1,000 regular train passengers.
"Despite inspections by the railways themselves, the actions taken are weak. They might replace one contractor with another but the quality of catering doesn't change. It will not unless they impose severe penalties."
The audit report has listed several examples of "unfair practices in catering services", with passengers receiving smaller portions than they ought to.
On the Sealdah Rajdhani, passengers received 17gm of almonds instead of 20gm; the Howrah-Ranchi Shatabdi served 90gm dal instead of 100gm.
Elsewhere, passengers received 90ml ice cream and curd in cups instead of 100ml, the contracted quantity. At the food plaza at Gwalior station, the audit inspectors found pooris weighing 130gm instead of the stipulated 175gm.
Nine trains with run times of over 24 hours lacked pantry cars. In seven of these trains, neither were train-side vendor services provided nor was any base kitchen nominated to help the passengers procure food during the journey.
These seven are: The Bandra Terminus-Dehra Dun Express, Bilaspur-Ernakulam Superfast Express, Jabalpur-Somnath Express, Kamakhya-Ranchi Express, Gorakhpur-Lokmanya Tilak Terminus Express, Lokmanya Tilak-Visakhapatnam Express and the Gwalior-Baroni Express.
The report has urged the railways to improve their monitoring and ensure that effective controls are in place to stop unfair practices, such as serving less than the prescribed quantity of food.
In February, the railway ministry had announced a new catering policy that mandated the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation to "un-bundle" or divide the responsibilities of food preparation and food distribution, set up new kitchens, upgrade the existing kitchens and introduce full accountability for food quality.

Railway projects worth Rs 10,736 crore were cleared by the government today for improving infrastructure in various states, including Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat that go to polls next year.
The projects, including three for doubling of existing rail lines and two for laying a third rail line on busy routes, were cleared by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) at its meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“I am happy to say that the CCEA has approved projects worth Rs 10,736 crore for doubling and tripling (of railway lines). There are

a total of five new projects, three doubling projects for 763 kms and two third line projects for 514 kms.
“The benefit of these projects obviously will go to several states but two important states will benefit immensely, one is Gujarat and the other is Uttar Pradesh,” Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said at a press conference after the meeting.
Providing details of the projects, he said, in Gujarat the CCEA has given approval for doubling of Surendranagar-Rajkot project at an estimated cost of Rs 1,002.39 crore with expected completion cost of Rs 1,137.17 crore with 5 per cent escalation per annum.
The length of the railway line will be 116.17 kms. The completion period of the project will be four years.
“It is a major push to Gujarat’s industrialisation ability,” he said.
He said the doubling of this line will greatly ease the ever increasing freight traffic between Okha-Rajkot, Porbandar-Kanalus, Veraval-Rajkot and Maliya Maiyana – Navalakhi-Dahinsara-Wankaner sections.
In UP, he said the doubling of Roza-Sitapur Cantt-Burhwal broad gauge single line project has been approved at an estimated cost of Rs 1,295.42 crore with expected completion cost of Rs 1,486.46 crore with 5 per cent escalation per annum.
The length of the railway line will be 180.77 kms. The completion period of the project will be five years.
The doubling of this line between Burhwal junction and Roza junction will fulfill the demand of the increasing traffic leading to socio-economic development of the area. Besides, there will be continuous double line track available from Gorakhpur to Delhi via Sitapur Cantonment and Moradabad. Barabanki and Sitapur districts of UP would also be benefited through this project.
Prabhu said the CCEA also gave its nod for doubling of Pune-Miraj-Londa railway line in Maharashtra at an estimated cost of Rs 3,627.47 crore and expected completion cost of Rs 4,246.84 crore in five years keeping in view the 5 per cent escalation per annum.
The length of the railway line will be 467 kms.
Besides the travelling people, industries in and around Miraj-Londa section will have additional transport capacity to meet their requirements.
Doubling of this line will greatly ease the ever increasing freight traffic on the Pune-Miraj-Londa section thereby increasing the revenue of the Railways, a railway ministry statement said.
The Pune-Miraj section is non-electrified single line on diesel traction and it is oversaturated.
“The additional traffic running over and above 100 per cent of utilisation is proposed to be diverted on the proposed doubling. The doubling of the section would come as an advantage as it would strengthen the rail network necessary to operate more passenger trains with increased speed and better efficiency,” it said.
Prabhu said the CCEA also granted approval for the Vizianagaram and Titlagarh third line project at an estimated cost of Rs 2,335.68 crore. The length of the railway line will be 264.6 kms. The completion period of the project will be five years.
The third line is an alternative route to the over-burdened existing line and this link will also open an alternative route to oversaturated Kharagpur–Jharsuguda section Howrah-Mumbai Grand Trunk Route and Howrah-Chennai section main line of East Coast Railways.
Rayagada and Kalahandi districts of Odisha and Vizianagaram and Babbili districts of Andhra Pradesh will benefit from this project.
The section is oversaturated with present capacity utilisation of 106 per cent and there is a huge detention to rolling stock.
The Bina-Katni third line project under West Central Railway (WCR) was also approved at an estimated cost of Rs 2,478.23 crore and expected completion cost of Rs 2,917.06 crore in five years. The line will be 278.7 kms long.
Besides facilitating passenger travel, the thermal power plants in the area will get a third line for transportation.
It will also greatly ease the ever-increasing freight traffic between Bina-Katni section increasing the railways’ earnings. Sagar, Damoh and Katni districts of Madhya Pradesh will benefit from this project, the ministry said.
The Bina-Katni is critical and busy section of WCR serving coal rakes for thermal power plants at Chhabra Gugur and Jhalawar in Rajasthan and paints, oils and lubricants (POL) traffic for Mahadevkhedi in Madhya Pradesh. At present, the capacity utilisation of the section is 136 per cent, the statement said.
Asked if the approved projects had been accounted for in the Rail Budget, Prabhu said, “Most of them are a mix, but some projects mentioned are with trans-budgetary support and some with extra-budgetary support.”
The completion of these projects, he said, will be between three to five years but the time limits given are outer limits and the government will be able to complete the projects earlier.
