New food plaza in Dhanbad

Passengers at Dhanbad railway station will be able to enjoy a bigger bite at a new multi-cuisine food plaza that will be inaugurated on Friday.

Dhanbad divisional railway manager (DRM) B.B. Singh will do the honours.

One Brindavan Food Products Limited will run the food plaza under Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), a marketing wing of Indian Railways.

Comesum, as it is known, will be the second such eatery at the station and will come up just at the entrance of the station premises.

Set up at a cost of Rs 40 lakh, the new eatery will make travelling a delectable experience. The plaza will serve fast food items, Chinese, North Indian, South Indian and Continental dishes, snacks, beverages and ice creams.

It will remain open round the clock for passengers.

ďSeating arrangement for 15 are being made at the plaza so that passengers can enjoy our food while waiting for their trains,Ē said an official of Brindavan Food.

Passengers can also order from trains by dialling a toll-free number (011-41100100) 30 minute in advance. For bulk order, the serving time is four hours.

The facility is a part of infrastructure development undertaken by Indian Railways after Dhanbad got A1 status last August.

Apart from this food plaza, escalators were set up at platform No. 2 and 3 in March, while elevators will also come up by the year-end.

Dhanbad station already has another eatery at platform No. 1 run by the same Brindavan Food Products Limited. However, it only serves fast food items and has less number of seats.
