South Western Railway denies the allegations in a recent news story telecasted by a TV channel regarding the quality of food served/supplied o­n trains plying between Bengaluru and Hubballi.The report was not objective and o­ne sided.As per the catering policy and extant rules and procedures, the tender was allotted to M/S.KMA Caterers, Bengaluru for the catering service between the stations.However, to monitor the situation a 15 days drive has been initiated to check the quality of food served is maintained and not compromised.
