Enjoying Food on Tejas Express Trains

One of the three semi-speed train series operating on the railway tracks of India, the other two being the Vande Bharat Express and Gatiman Express. Just like the Rajdhani Express, the Tejas Express is a fully air-conditioned train.

The first Tejas Express train ran on May 24, 2017. The word ‘Tejas’ has several meanings in different languages. But all of them are similar and mean something like lustre, brilliance, or sharpness, among others. True to their name, these trains can run at a top speed of 200 km/h. However, due to track constraints and safety considerations, the maximum operating speed allowed is 130 km/h. Presently, the trains run at an average speed of 65 km/h.

Currently, Tejas Express is operating on 5 routes, which means there are 10 Tejas trains connecting various important cities in India through railway tracks.

What makes Tejas trains different from others?

The Tejas trains are among the most premium trains. All Tejas trains are completely air-conditioned and well-maintained. These coaches are more spacious and luxurious. The passengers are allowed to carry more luggage. These trains run at a speed of 130–140 km/h.

The passengers are served complimentary meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, evening tea, etc.) on their seats. Because of their high speed, well-maintained coaches, and other amenities, Tejas trains are very popular among people.

However, unlike most trains, the fares on Tejas Express are dynamic in nature and may change keeping in mind other considerations. This means the fare varies as per the lean, busy, and festive seasons.

Food on board Tejas trains:

The Tejas train fare includes compulsory meals for passengers. The meal charges are collected along with the travel fare at the time of booking. The meal served in Tejas Express includes breakfast, lunch, evening tea, and dinner as per the time of the day.

While the Tejas trains offer meals on board, the passengers often have to compromise on what they eat. Some social websites have recorded complaints from customers regarding the quality of the food being served from the pantry. Often, pantry food has been found ‘unsatisfactory’ and ‘unhygienic’ by government-approved food safety and security organizations. For lack of options, the passengers have no option but to either carry food from home or rely on the panty food served in the train.

Tejas Express Food Menu

Looking at the different food preferences in different parts of the country, the exact menu varies a bit, though there is not much change on a regular basis. Of course, there are different menu options depending on whether you are going for a vegetarian meal or a non-vegetarian meal.

Looking at regional food preferences, IRCTC has introduced regional delicacies offering local and ethnic cuisines to suit the taste buds of passengers.

Why order food online in Tejas trains?

While this food may satisfy your taste buds, it may not be good for your stomach and may lead to many diseases and infections, including stomach upset, vomiting, or even food poisoning.
