E-catering services will be extended to 408 stations from 40 now, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said here on Thursday.

"IRCTC will manage catering services in a phased manner," Prabhu said while presenting the Railway Budget 2016-17 in parliament.

He also said catering services will be unbundled by IRCTC by categorizing into food preparation and food distribution.

Prabhu said Indian Railways will explore the possibility of making mandatory catering services optional in the trains.

He said that a new policy of multi-purpose stalls as against existing single purpose stalls is to be introduced in all stations.
