The app, which allows passengers to book and get food from their preferred restaurants delivered right on their reserved seats, would offer a cash back option of 15 per cent on purchases made through the MobiKwik wallet, which will also power payments for IRCTC Connect that allows users to book train tickets. 

“Last year, MobiKwik became the primary wallet on IRCTC Connect, and this year, we are taking our partnership a step further by offering a robust e-cash payments option on IRCTC’s e-catering app. Our partnership will greatly benefit users, as they don’t have to worry about paying in cash or search for change, given that trains halt at platforms only for a few seconds or minutes,”said Mrinal Sinha, COO, MobiKwik.
