LPG ban

In June 2022, following instructions from the Railway Board, IRCTC had asked zonal railways to stop using LPG cylinders for cooking in all pantry cars attached to mail/express trains to avoid any mishap.

What instead of LPG?

If LPG is banned in the train then how is the food prepared. This question must be arising in the mind of many. In fact, instead of LPG, the pantry car has been asked to convert into flameless electric design or induction top cooking. For this, state-of-the-art cooking equipments are installed in the pantry car. Electricity is used instead of LPG. It is made from stainless steel to take special care of cleanliness.

According to the information, it costs 60 lakh rupees to convert from LPG pantry car to flameless pantry car. This reduces the risk of fire. Also, this type of pantry car also helps in eliminating the use of polluting fossil fuels.
