Parliament canteen looks to switch caterer, may soon serve only vegetarian food

Private players such as Bikanerwala or Haldiram look set to dethrone the IRCTC, which means that the food options available to Parliamentarians in the future may be strictly vegetarian.

The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) may soon be asked to stop catering for the Parliament canteen.

As concerns regarding the quality of food served by the Indian Railways (IR) subsidiary have continued to grow, their replacement seems imminent.

Private players such as Bikanerwala or Haldiram look set to dethrone the IRCTC, The Times of India reported. This also means that the food options available to Parliamentarians in the future may be strictly vegetarian.

Concerned authorities have kept the IRCTC in their radar for months now as complaints about the ever-degrading quality of the food served to parliamentarians rose. The subsidies offered had also become rather frequent.
