Indian Railways has launched its first ‘Restaurant on Wheels’ at the circulating area of Asansol railway station for the use of both rail passengers and the general public.
The ‘Restaurant on Wheels’ was developed by refurbishing two over-aged MEMU coaches and was inaugurated by Union Minister and Asansol MP Babul Supriyo. A press release from the ministry further revealed, “This unique effort will not only improve the facilities at Asansol station but will also generate non-fare revenue earnings approximately Rs 50 lakh in the next five years.”
