During the trial period, catering services will be included by default. However, passengers have to specifically ‘opt out’ from the mandatory food option, the release said. The exclusion of catering apportionment charges will reduce the fare of the ticket and a passenger will have to pay less.

“This facility is available in all tickets such as tickets from PRS counters, e-ticketing portals of IRCTC and such tickets shall be issued with reduced fare,” it added.
