Order sweets for Holi on trains

New Delhi: Passengers heading home for Holi by trains can order sweets and other items while travelling as a food aggregator has tied up with the IRCTC for delivering them on the go.

“The festival of colours is back and this is one of the few occasions when people, mostly students or professionals living outside their native places, plan a trip home. Then there are people who end up boarding the train in a rush due to last minute plans and forget to carry any gifts or sweets delicacies,” Travelkhana CEO Pushpinder Singh said.

He said “we have started the service for travellers across 37 railway stations including New Delhi, Jabalpur, Ambala and Pune.”

Some of the delicacies available are Gond mawa laddoo, Shahi rabdi, special rajwadi kheer, he said.

Food items can be ordered either through Travelkhana’s website or mobile app or by directly calling on customer care number, a company official said.

The online platform has already received orders for Pune station.
