July 19 2021: Aiming to allay health risks while eating in public spaces amid the pandemic, the Kerala Tourism Development Corporation (KTDC) has launched a novel facility that serves food to travellers inside their vehicles.
Through the ‘In-Car Dining’ scheme, customers can place orders and receive dishes of their choice from the KTDC’s Aahaar Restaurants by remaining in their parked vehicles, Tourism Minister P. A. Mohammed Riyas said.
Adhering to Covid-19 protocols, breakfast, lunch and dinner, besides snacks, will be served under the ‘In-Car Dining’ scheme. Initially, select KTDC restaurants in the state will carry out the scheme, he added.
“‘In-Car Dining’ seeks to provide our customers with a new experience,” Mr. Riyas said in Thiruvananthapuram, after reviewing a set of ongoing tourism projects as well as the activities of the KTDC. “We plan to reach out to the people with safe and tasty food.”
“The KTDC hotel chains will be renovated under the project ‘Mission Facelift’ after classifying them on a priority basis,” he added.
