Based on inputs by Shahid Kazi

Indian Railway’s catering arm IRCTC has taken up a noble initiative to support the poor and homeless, who might face basic survival issues.

The Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) is likely to provide “distress meals” to the thousands of homeless and destitute amidst the Coronavirus lockdown.

All of the zonal railway headquarters of IRCTC has been asked to make specific provisions and facilities so that the basic distress meals are available in bulk, across several areas in the respective zones.

These IRCTC distress meals are likely to include the simple homemade food items such as dal khichdi with pickle, while certain other IRCTC units are working towards providing the Swaminarayan khichdi.

According to the report, the IRCTC officials are working towards providing the bulk meals to as many as 3,000 to 5,000 people at one go, through the various IRCTC base stations.
