Bhopal Railway Station has been certified as a "Eat Right Station" with a 4-star rating by the Food Safety and Standard Association of India (FSSAI). According to a news release from the Ministry of Railways, the station received this coveted honour for serving "high-quality, nutritional cuisine to passengers."
It has long been customary to grant the aforementioned accreditation to railroad stations following a rating by an FSSAI-appointed independent auditing organisation on their food storage and hygiene procedures. According to reports, the organisation scores them from 1 to 5. The certifications given to railroad stations are based on these ratings. A 4-star grade on the scale denotes complete adherence by the station to the standards for ensuring safe and hygienic meals.
According to reports, the FSSAI started the "Eat Right India" programme in 2018. It is an endeavour to change the nation's food system and provide travellers with wholesome, sustainable, and secure meals.
As a result, FSSAI India awarded the Bhopal Junction Railway Station of West Central Railway a 4-star rating and designated it as a "Eat Right Station," the Ministry of Health noted.
In September 2021, Chandigarh Railway Station became the fifth Indian railway station to receive a 5-star "Eat Right Station" certification, joining Bhopal Railway Station and Anand Vihar Terminal Railway Station in Delhi, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus in Mumbai, Mumbai Central Railway Station in Mumbai, and Vadodara Railway Station in previous years.
