Welcome to the new look of IRI, and also apologies to those who find this layout change inconvenient, and want the old look back.
The change was made because the old Tab/SubTab scheme was no longer sustainable with the rapid introduction of new features, and the resulting cluttering up of the screen. The new look is menu driven. There are 2 main components to the new look.
1.
...
more...
The Omni Search Box at the top: You can look up pretty much any station, train, search details by typing in the Omni Box. The box will adapt to what you type in. You can check the following details through that one box: Train TimeTables, Availability, Fare Chart, Route Map, Train Forum, Train Trips, Station Arrival/Departures, Station Map, Station Search - all of these are available through that ONE box. You don't need to go hunting around for the individual details anymore.
2. The Navigation Bar: The Bar is menu-driven, and all Tab/Subtabs are accessible through that ONE bar.
Together, the Omni Box and the Navigation Bar will allow you to access every corner of the site without hunting around for buttons or boxes. (see pic).
Further Details:
1. The Omni Box is "sticky". The contents don't clear after every query, like it was before. So, if you search from Station A to Station B, both stations will "stick" to the box, and you don't have to type in the same stations again for other details. So, for example, if you wish to search trains from A to B, A to C and A to D, one after the other. Only the second station box needs to be repopulated. You don't need to fill A in repeatedly.
2. The Navigation Bar is also "sticky". It sticks to the top of the screen as you scroll down. So, it is always accessible and visible no matter where you are on the site.
3. Infinite Scrolling: The various forums, news, train details, etc. will now automatically scroll as you page down. There is no need to hit the Next Page button anymore.
4. Both the Omni Box and Navigation Bar are "adaptive" and "dynamic". They will change depending on the user. For example, when you are logged in, all the "My PNRs", "My Blog Posts", "My Trains", etc. will automatically appear as a menu below your name. When you logout, the same link will change into a "Login" link.
Please note that only the layout has changed. ALL past functionality is still present as it was before. When you find that some feature seems to be missing, just experiment with the new Omni Box and the Navigation Bar, and you will find that feature. There is no need to look elsewhere.
This layout change was made after a lot of consideration and deliberation, knowing that the past look was not sustainable for the future. There was not much choice but to change. Please bear with us, just experiment and get used to the new look and feel.
Thanks.

Thanks for everyone's acknowledgement and feedback. All feedback and suggestions will be gradually incorporated into the new layout.
We don't make layout changes often, and this new layout is here to stay for a long time.
Please get used to it. Please remember that ALL past functionality is present within the Omni Box and Navigation Bar. Just look around, and you will find whatever you are searching for. You can reach every corner of the site from these 2 widgets.

spite of the temporary inconvenience, the new layout allows us to rapidly roll out many new features indefinitely, without worrying about cluttering up the interface.
Thanks again for everyone's patience.

Thank you for the acknowledgement. It seems that the entire page is static and only moves while scrolling. Kindly note that some people use old mouse where scrolling option is not present.
Also, the automatic feed while predicting pnr's, refreshing their status and marking the final status should be disabled.
Reason:
1) When I predict a PNR, it moves up and then down and

then finally gets static. I need to wait for the action to take place before I could actually predict the second PNR.
2) When I refresh a PNR, move to the 2nd and then to the 3rd and then to the 4th, by this time I would see that the 1st PNR has already been refreshed. Due to this the entire page seems to shift down. Thus when I actually think of clicking the "Refresh" button of a particular entry I happen to click on some other portion which results in the expansion of the PNR entry.
3) The combination of both takes place while putting the final stamps. I need to refresh the status (It moves doiwn), mark the stamp (It again moves down).
##

Hence following a top-down approach in this case appears quite inconvenient especially to the admins. Cant say about others, but without a bottom-up approach, I find it quite difficult to mark the final status (Atleast if automatic feed can be disabled as per user convenience in the pnr forum, then one can easily follow the bottom-up approach and speedily mark the status.
Thanks.

In the earlier versions, if the number of trains b/n any 2 countries are more , then there was an option given in the dropdown list (Next, Close).. But now we don't have. this would be tough if people doesn't know exact train numbers.can u plz provide this option.

Sir,thanks a lot for putting in a lot of hard work and toil in order to achieve what we before us today.At first,I admit,I was nostalgic about the old look and its familiar yellow colour,but now,I confess,this radical departure from the erstwhile avatar of this site has been done for the GREATER GOOD.
