Thus, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation’s (IRCTC) might set a big example for the no plastic movement in the state. “The Shatabdi Express runs six times a week, except on Tuesdays. The plan to pack food in eco-friendly material will be rolled out in phases,” senior divisional commercial manager (DCM) Krishnath Patil told the Times of India.

The report further said that once the food containers and cutlery is used, it will be collected and will used for composting. “As far as the supply of eco-friendly packaging material is concerned, it will be done by the IRCTC in coordination with us.
