We some times get this message when we check train running status:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e07'

Conversion failed when converting date and/or time from character string.

/o/status.asp, line 339

Yes Kishan this error mostly happen on 1st and 11th day of any month. I think Indian Railways' CRIS is not able to solve this BUG.

Something is going wrong in the Train Enquiry site.

The site gives the following error message when we try to get train running information

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a0408'

Invalid character

/o/status.asp, line 277

driver={SQL Server};server=Server=;uid=Administrator;pwd =maths_123;Database=WEBNTESDB;

Hope the problem has been notified to NTES and CRIS team to resolve the same.
