Get SMS alert on Train cancellations
The Railway Ministry will now be sending SMS alerts on train cancellations.
Under the project, the SMS messages are sent to passengers who board at the originating station. At a later stage, this will be extended to cover en-route stations, too. This service has been commenced on all-India basis. The SMS will be sent to mobile numbers entered by passengers in the reservation slips while buying tickets from PRS counters or online e-tickets. The cancellation information will be sent in advance to help passengers plan accordingly.
