Isn't Indian government growing towards technology. Thanks again for providing some measure of relief to the railway passengers, Indian Railways had initiated an SMS service in collaboration with
For finding the status of seats, earlier, the passengers had to depend either on the site of the Indian Railways or the PNR machines installed on station premises, but now, with the service available on mobile phones, which are used extensively throughout the country, it can prove highly beneficial to passengers in easily getting information regarding the current status of their seats.
The passengers just need to send an SMS at 97733-00000, and without any extra charge, just at the normal rate of one SMS, they can derive their reservation status.
The service is aimed at helping the passengers in getting the exact status of their seats along with other information like seat number, date of journey and the boarding station. The service is already functional, but is hardly proving helpful to the passengers due to the lack of publicity.
The PNR machines installed at the city railway station are hardly coming handy as most of the time they remain unfunctional and apart from it most people find it difficult to handle them in absence of proper knowledge about them.
