Indian Railway has launched a new app National Train Enquiry System (NTES) for the purpose of tracking the real time of any train in India. This app is available both for desktop and smartphone. Beside checking the realtime status of train NTES can also be used for ticket confirm, pnr status, spot your train, train schedules, trains between stations, etc. Not only this but you can also get details of canceled trains on your phone.
With the help of “Spot your train” feature you can get information such as its current position, expected time of arrival and departure at a particular station. The “Train Schedule” feature provides complete schedule of a train with all stoppages in the route.
Its Cancelled Trains option shows all the list of trains which are cancelled through the entire route as well as for the partial route. So, you can get such information also.
This app also tells you that when will your desired train will reach at your selected station. In addition, you can also get details of how many trains are conducted from any junction and name and numbers of all these trains.
So, isn’t it a very useful and fantastic app? According to me, every Indian citizen must install this app on their devices. However, now Indian railway releases this app for only Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 desktop operating systems.
Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) has also announced that soon this app will also be available for other platforms like Android, iOS etc.
