Indian Railways Train Enquiry Mobile App NTES Launched
Indian Railway has introduced a mobile application named NTES that will give users information on arrival and departure timings of a particular train on their mobile phones. The app has been developed by CRIS, the IT wing of Indian Railways. The app can be used for various enquiries including train timings.
National Train Enquiry System (NTES) is a back-end system of Indian Railways which provides accurate information to the commuters about train schedules on a near real time basis. It leverages the availability of various interfaces like nationwide unique rail enquiry number 139, website, mobile interfaces, touch screens, enquiry counters and display boards at stations.
CRIS has added more power to the train enquiry system by developing the mobile app and a desktop application on Windows 8 platform. Some of the prominent features of the mobile app are the ‘spot your train’ feature which offers real time information such as current position, expected time of arrival and departure at a particular station. Another significant feature is The ‘Train Schedule’ feature which provides complete schedule of a train and its all stoppages. The feature also gives information on train’s scheduled arrival/departure at the station, distance and day count.
“Trains between Stations” feature helps to find out the list of trains available between two railway stations. The mobile app displays one more feature ‘Cancelled Trains’ that informs all trains marked as cancelled. It accommodates the details of the trains cancelled through the entire route or on partial route. Currently the app is developed for Windows 8.0 and soon other mobile platforms will follow the suite.
