OMitra, Indias first rail social app, incubated at the International Institute for Information Technology (IIIT), Hyderabad has introduced an all new food ordering facility for the travellers of our Indian Rail Network.

The app, which can be downloaded on android mobile platform, was earlier launched, keeping in mind, various requirements for a train traveller and also acted as a networking platform for the travellers on a particular train. Adding to their kitty of services, the food delivery option will be provided in the app, so that the travellers can choose their favourite cuisine and order it from any specific station en-route, a statement said here today.

The app has collaborated with six major food suppliers that cater to the railwaysand have a selection of over 2800+ dishes with different cuisines made at over 650 different restaurants across 300+ stations in India, allowing users to eat what they want and wherever they want. These food suppliers include TravelKhana, KhanaGadi, RailRestro, TrainMeals, TravelersFood, Express food Service.

We always wanted to give the traveller a comfortable travel experience without the need to worry about requirements like food. There are incidents we have come across, where people go hungry, because unable to find food to their liking ordownright, unable to place their orders. Such instances gave us the vision to add food services to our existing app. Now travellers need not worry about the food and can order any cuisine of their choice OMityra Co-Founder Vikas Jagetiya said.

The app is quite user-friendly and the traveller just needs to input his PNR number and a route map is instantly downloaded and stored offline along with all the food catering options available along that route. Using the App, during his trip, the user can browse through a huge selection of food items [both veg/non-veg] and place his order to be picked up from any station of his choice. During the journey, even if a user is in a region that does not support mobile internet, the App has a built-in-functionality that will push a SMS and place the food order.UNI VV KVV ADB 1755
