All zonal railways have been asked to withdraw their catering staff engaged in non-core activities such as those related to cultural and sporting functions, according to a directive of the Railway Board issued today. “All zonal railways should withdraw catering staff engaged in non-core activities like VIP catering, special catering, catering at the railway club or other semi-official catering activities like those related to Women’s Welfare Organisation, cultural and sporting functions and other such activities,” the directive, a copy of which is with PTI, read. The Board has asked zonal railways to engage private caterers for such purposes. “The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has also been directed to refrain from stretching their limited resources for such non-core catering activities,” it said. With the implementation of the Catering Policy 2017, most of the catering units and related activities have been transferred to the IRCTC.

Zonal railways should curtail their role in the area of catering and Group D staff thus rendered surplus should be immediately redeployed against existing vacancies within the commercial and operating departments, the order read.
