The Swiggy service at railway stations will kick off at four railway stations initially, with plans to expand to 59 additional stations within the next six months, starting from March 12.

Similar to Zomato, only passengers travelling in reserved coaches can avail of Swiggy's food delivery service. Unfortunately, unreserved passengers are excluded from this service due to the requirement of a PNR number.
