On Sep 06, 2013, an enhanced new interface for has been made available to public through website This new train enquiry interface has been developed by Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS), the IT wing of Indian Railways. The new interface for the website was made public for past one week as field trial (beta mode) to get users’ feedback.

What is New in

This new interface for train enquiry, offers quick and easy access to essential information for passengers, has been largely appreciated for its speed, simple interface and richness of information and smooth user experience. The interface has been made bilingual with Hindi version available on the website. New site provides more informative and user-friendly than the previous rail enquiry site

  • “Station”- This query has been given to replicate the display boards at station. One can see, sitting at home the trains expected to arrive/depart at any given station in next 2/4/6/8 hours. Stations can be entered through code or name both. Option is also given to automatically refresh the screen every two minutes.
  • “Trains between Stations”- A very valuable query covering all trains defined on IR between any two stations. This complete information is presently not available on any other government website.
  • “Trains Cancelled”- This query displays all trains cancelled on IR. The tab displays trains which are cancelled through entire route as well as cancelled partially and providing service on partial route.
  • “Rescheduled” and “Diverted”- These queries display all trains marked as rescheduled or diverted on IR. The respective tabs display trains rescheduled timings and diverted route (from – to) information.

Thank you for launching such a great application interface for train enquiry we were waiting for a long-long ago.

Now, I have some suggestions to make it more useful:

Please provide SORT COLUMNS FACILITY on clicking the column headers of some TABLES such as:
a) Table displayed for "list of trains between two railway stations". Because this way user can get data in ascending/descending form for a particular COLUMN such as "sorting as travel time" to find out which train takes minimum or maximum travel time. [This facility is already available in UNOFFICIAL SITE like “”, “”, etc.)
b) Sorting Column will improve the web-site Quality.

2) While displaying trains between two stations; a LINK to know the “Availability status” should also be provided so that with fewer efforts, users can plan their journey in quick time.

3) The site is now LIGHTWEIGHT (which is best). It is requested that in future kindly do not add FLASH or HEAVEY CONETNTS which takes longer to unload/download (also kills valuable server load and eats lots of bandwidth).
Because “Simplicity Mein Adbhut Taaqat Hoti Hai”.

4) This is my Last but the most important request that please do not SHUT-DOWN the site because the site takes longer to upload. In India all mobile users do not have SMARTPHONE. Most users have ORDINARY GPRS PHONE which could not load/run/access
Hence, in the interest of common public please keep the site alive because it takes very less time to give the result with use of only FEW KiloBytes of Data Usage.

Thanking you to All CRIS team,
