The passenger, Viresh Narkar, shared a photo on Twitter complaining about the quality of food served on the train while travelling to Sainagar Shirdi. The passengers shared some photos and tweeted," Travelling by Magnificat Vande Bharat Express to Shirdi.

Few problems that can be improved

1) Executive Class is given in middle of train, hence other class people keep moving continuously and there is no privacy even after paying more. EC should be at front or back of train.

2) Since the flooring is carpet now, Dyson Vacuum cleaners should be provided instead of traditional method of sweeping the floor. @Central_Railway @RailMinIndia @AshwiniVaishnaw @GM_CRly. Also the food quality can be improved, no1 prefers dusty cornflakes in India. He also tagged Central Railway under which the Mumbai-Shirdi Vande Bharat Express operates along with Railway Minister Ashwani Vaishnaw, Railway Ministry and General Manager of the Central Railway.

Indian Railways responded to the tweet and wrote,"Your complaint has been registered on RailMadad and complaint no. has been sent through SMS on your mobile no. You may track your complaint via this link."
