The staff had complained to the authorities that there were no canteen facilities near the depot and so they decided to use the old, unsued coach as a cafeteria. Depot official Anil Kumar said, "Staff of Railways had been demanding for the arrangements of the canteen or cafeteria. There is no hotel or cafe around the depot that provides hygienic breakfast. Many coaches of trains were unused so we decided to start a canteen to provide hygienic breakfast to employees. The canteen is being run on a trial basis and the result is positive till now."
