Yet another people friendly initiative of Indian Railways is that henceforth passengers can book retiring rooms at railway stations two months in advance through the internet or computer terminals at stations.
In a press release on Wednesday, Indian Railways announced that it provides lodging facility through retiring rooms to passengers at stations spread across the country. “At present, booking of retiring rooms has been computerised at 67 stations. The rooms can be booked on computer terminals placed at these stations as well as on internet through the website www.railtourismindia.com. Currently, booking/cancellation, upgradation and extension are available in the retiring room application,” it read. Now, confirmed and RAC ticket holders can access the facility 60 days prior.
