[Published on: Apr 26, 2014] Indian Railways launched its new app National Train Enquiry System (NTES) for tracking real time train status in India. Now all Indian rail users can get information about ticket confirm, ticket status etc directly from their smartphone and desktop. With the help of this newly launched Indian Railway’s app “NTES” you can do all these things very simply even from your home.
With the help of this app, you can know several things such as – trains between stations, spot your train, train schedules, etc. Not only this but you can also get details of canceled trains on your phone.
The “Spot your train” feature offers 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 displays all the 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.
