Scores of north-bound trains are getting delayed for several hours because of dense fog situation.

IRCTC is taking all efforts to provide meals to the passengers, if the journey is extended by more than two hours.

However, the free catering service is being provided on trains during the journey and the facility is not extended at platforms, a senior IRCTC official said.

He said passengers will be served tea/coffee, lunch/dinner or breakfast/evening tea, depending on the timings.
