Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS), the IT wing of Indian Railways, has developed an enhanced new interface for the www.trainenquiry.com for dissemination of information to public. National Train Enquiry System (NTES) developed by CRIS is the backend system which collects information about train running on near real time basis and disseminates information through various interfaces like nationwide unique number 139, Website (www.trainenquiry.com), face to face enquiry, mobile interfaces etc.
The new interface is accessible through www.trainenquiry.com or www.enquiry.indianrail.gov.in. The new feature enables the users to obtain information regarding Train Schedule, current running status, expected time of arrival and departure.
Some general characteristics are that all train numbers in different pages have been given as hyperlinks to view the schedule and current running.
The interface has been made bilingual with Hindi version available on the website. As part of the IR/CRIS ongoing efforts to enhance the quality and availability of information to public, new features such as separate pages for special trains and major events would be made available subsequently.
