Fungus-Infested Yoghurt Served On Vande Bharat, IRCTC Apologises

Harshad Topkar was travelling to Delhi from Dehradun via Vande Bharat Express recently. When he opened the container of yoghurt that was served on the train with the meal, he was left flabbergasted. He found a “greenish layer” that he suspected was “most probably fungus” in the yoghurt served to him. Harshad then took to X (formerly Twitter) to share this incident and shared pictures of it as well. He tagged all the concerned authorities on the tweet and expressed his disappointment in the service provided by the railways.

To the Indian Railways’ credit, they were quick to respond on this entire matter. In fact, within half an hour of the tweet, the Northern Railway and Railway Seva responded to it and asked the passenger for all his details.

IRCTC too tweeted and apologised to the passenger on the same trail. They assured the passenger that they would check with the manufacturers and investigate the matter further.
