The much-awaited 'Jan Ahaar' outlet was inaugurated at the Pune Railway station on Wednesday.
Now Janta Khana — a plate of Puri-bhaji —will be available at platform one of the station for Rs 10 and will comprise seven puris, bhaji, pickle and green chillies.
Z A Siddiqui, chief commercial manager, Central Railway, said, while inaugurating the unit, "Serving food to people is not a means of making profit for the railways. So we've taken this intiative for providing food to the common man at affordable rates. Every item sold here will be below Rs 35. It has both sitting arrangements as well as take-away faclities. The menu has been decided keeping in mind the local cuisine, with vada pao being served here."
Pune Divisional Railway Manager Prabhat Sahai, Senior Divsional Commercial Manager, Alok Badgul and other senior officials were present. The unit was inaugurated by children from the Mother Teresa Home, an orphanage.
