Train travelers assured of hygienic baby milk in state-of-art packaging
India, 16 February 2017: RailYatri.in, a train travel marketplace, has recently launched milk delivery service for train travellers. For the first time in India, warm milk will be delivered in specially designed spill-proof thermo packages. The milk for babies can easily be ordered through the RailYatri app and delivered at the designated stations.
RailYatri.in analysis found that in more than 80% instances, trains are not prepared to serve baby food or milk to passengers. Also getting hygienic This is a very disturbing fact and one that has become pack and parcel of train journeys in India. Long delays and uncertainties that often mark train travel add to this persistent problem leaving travelling parents in a big fix.
“Train travel can have some severe hurdles when you are travelling with an infant. Our effort is to make sure no mother goes through the agony of seeing her hungry baby cry. Keeping such emergencies in mind, we will now deliver warm milk for babies in hygienic, spill-proof packages. We already serve great meals for the entire family, so why should the little ones’ need be unattended,” says Manish Rathi, CEO and co-founder, RailYatri.in.
“Parents usually carry their baby's food and milk along. However, in case of unforeseen situations like long train delays or if someone forgets to carry baby food, you now do not have to worry about milk for your child. We have taken special care to deliver milk in the best condition, with emphasis on hygiene and quality packaging,” explains Rathi.
Mrs. Gayatri Chaudhary, a passenger travelling from Old Delhi to Gorakhpur in the Avadh Assam Express once shared her unfortunate experience: “As a customary practice I had packed baby's milk and food in adequate quantity for the journey. It was all fine, before the train reached Hardoi. The train was stranded in the middle of nowhere and all we learnt was that there was a massive signalling problem ahead and we were stranded for over 9 hours. My husband sought help from the train's pantry, but they too did not have excess milk. So, he kept disembarking at every stop in search of any baby food. After many failed attempts, he found some milk from a station side tea stall. All this while, I was going through the agony of trying to console my hungry 10 month old daughter. I would never forget that feeling of helplessness!”
Ordering milk is a just few taps away and can be done through the RailYatri app anytime, anywhere. And once you order, milk will be delivered right at your berth without you bothering about getting off the station and collecting it.
With multiple payment options, you can also order milk for your near and dear ones who are travelling without you. Getting warm milk for your child on your train travel is a step forward towards simplifying train journeys for each passenger, and this has been RailYatri’s constant endeavour.
