    Haha, yes, it is a mistranslation. The Hindi version says: "Eating on the carpet/floor is strictly prohibited." I think, it means, you are not supposed to sit down on the carpet and eat food - presumably meant to keep it clean.

    The Hindi version uses "floor" in fact, not even a carpet. Maybe the Hindi version was meant for passengers and the English version for any existing rats :D
