Indian Railways Information Service

April 13, 2008

I got this scrap in my Orkut scrapbook:




forward to all ur friends by sms/email/scrap …. thanks …


This is from Orkut profile: Bharatrail and is to promote a new Indain Railways website, Am not too sure if this is really Indian Railways website and who created this profile to promote this link? Nothing great about using social media to promote website, however it is something if Indian Railways use it.

My Take on Bharatrail

1) I find it neat, cool and fast to use.

2) It is only an information system to inquire about availability of seats .

3) Introduced useful feature like Auto suggestion and Auto complete for station names.

4) Neat and complete display of availability information.

5) Tabbed browsing within website, each click opens in a new tab within the website, saves a lot of time, however might get irritating as number of opened tabs increase

Worth exploring, How do you find it?

    The better way to search Indian trains looks great and it open fast, no pop-up, user friendly. Every information in a single page. This concept is good and some of the features like calendar, train running day has not come in a single website in this reviews. the most important features i have seen in this site that if the user does not know the station code then also he can see all the trains and it is only website which have a drop menu box for the important station from where you can choose the station name and also it has a date calendar from you can choose the date and it show the running day of the train so that you can know which day of the week this train is running. the other most important feature I have seen in this website that it show the train which does not have the reservation coach for the benefit of the user and they are showing the passenger train also which is also not available in any website. This site will enable the users to search train route and compare fares of most of the trains in India.
