By : |August 2, 2016 0

Indian Railways, one of the world’s largest railway networks, has undertaken several initiatives to upgrade and enhance its quality of service. With its continued efforts, IRCTC is grading up its e-catering app called Food-on-Track in a partnership with online digital payments platform Mobikwik, to integrate a digital payment service into the app.

Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation(IRCTC) has announced an exclusive partnership with Mobikwik, who is already a digital payments partner for the IRCTC connect app which allows users to book tickets instantly.

IRCTC had recently introduced an e-catering app called Food-on-Track. The organization has now announced an exclusive partnership with online digital payments platform Mobikwik, to power the e-cash payments on IRCTC’s food delivery app. Using the food delivery app, the commuters will be able to book food items from their preferred restaurants, pay for the same using Mobikwik and get piping hot food delivered right to their train coach (or seat). With this app, passengers can pre-order food at over 300+ stations from prominent food chains such as Dominos, Punjab Grill, KFC, IRCTC Food Plaza and others.



Commenting on the partnership, Mrinal Sinha, COO, MobiKwik, said, “Last year, MobiKwik became the primary wallet on IRCTC Connect, and this year, we are taking our partnership a step further by offering a robust e-cash payments option on IRCTC’s e-catering app. Our partnership will greatly benefit users, as they don’t have to worry about paying in cash or search for change, given that trains halt at platforms only for a few seconds or minutes.”

Mobikwik has lately been expanding and adding more services to its platform. It has also altered its Android app into a lighter version, which can also be accessed in areas with dotted or irregular mobile connectivity.

IRCTC had also allowed cash loading through ‘cash pick up‘in select cities and cash deposit at over ,100,000 locations across 1,000 cities in India, which is highly beneficial for individuals with no access to Internet banking or plastic money.
