Railways get tough with food contractors

Chennai division,Southern Railway,

Next time you are charged extra for a plate of sambar vada or a bottle of water during a train journey, don't just complain, register it in the complaint book or call one of the helplines. Your complaint may help railway officials track down the erring contractor and take immediate action.

In the past six months, 53 stalls were closed down by railway officials, a majority of them at Central and Egmore stations. This is a major crackdown, compared to closure of just 11 stalls in the past two financial years.
