Mobile payments company MobiKwik and Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) have tied up to allow travelers to make e-cash payments on IRCTC's e-catering app Food on Track.
MobiKwik will power e-cash payments on the Food on Track app, which allows passengers to book food from restaurants have it delivered to their coaches. Passengers can pre-order food at over 300 stations from food chains such as Dominos, Punjab Grill, KFC and IRCTC Food Plaza.
The tie-up comes after the payments company last year partnered the state-run firm to power payments for IRCTC Connect, which allows users to book train tickets instantly.
MobiKwik COO Mrinal Sinha said the latest move will help passengers who do not have access to Internet banking, credit and debit cards.
MobiKwik also allows users to load cash on its digital wallet and pick up or deposit cash in select cities. The cash pick-up service of MobiKwik is available in New Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Jaipur and Surat. The service recently completed one million transactions.
