To put an end to all speculations about hygiene and quality of food in the railway kitchens, Indian Railways is planning to install a transparent system that will allow passengers to access live feed online directly from the kitchens on how their food is being cooked and packed!
Railway Minister Piyush Goyal launched a website, Rail Drishti Dashboard. The portal will give out information about various trains, stations, and tickets sold. It will enable the public to watch live feed from IRCTC kitchens across the country.
The railway minister said that to ensure easy accountability, passengers can log in to the user-friendly website and closely observe the condition of every facility, and in case of any discrepancy, also lodge a complaint at the portal.
The dashboard offers information about services under 15 different categories including a 360-degree virtual tour of train routes, tracking of trains, freight earnings, expenditure incurred by the railways, etc. It will also display the entire income generated per day, week, month and year, in addition to the various achievements of the railways.
