Railways to introduce new app to answer rail-related queries
The Indian Railways is developing a new mobile app which is likely to be named HindRail.
The app will work as a full-time inquiry system and give information on train arrivals, departures, delays, cancellations, platform number, running status and availability of seats.
The app will also offer booking of taxis, porter services, retiring rooms, hotels and other travel-related needs.
The Railways plan to introduce the app by June this year.
The idea is to combine all the rail-travel related services into one app and earn around Rs 100 crore every year.
