Travelling by train is an experience in itself and what makes it even more interesting is the food. From local vendors selling chai, and samosa to rajma chawal and noodles, we get a plethora of options including the pantry service managed by IRCTC. Vegetarians and non-vegetarians can enjoy the thali, which is a scrumptious deal. But, what if the train only offers vegetarian food? Well, it is now true! Scroll down for the details.

According to media reports, Vande Bharat Express from Delhi to Katra in Jammu and Kashmir will only serve vegetarian food. It has been reported that the passengers will only get to enjoy the taste of vegetarian food during this long journey and no meat or eggs will be served.

If you are thinking that this train is all just about vegetarian food, let us tell you that even the kitchens used for preparation will have only vegetarian ingredients, and the waiters do not handle any non-vegetarian food either.

If we go by the reports, this train is one-of-its-kind to be given a Sattvik certificate, as part of an agreement between the Indian railways authority IRCTC and the NGO Sattvic Council of India. According to a Sattvic Council of India analyst, there are plans to replicate this in 18 more trains across India.
