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.

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.

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...

    Often we have some TL Entries seemingly in WaitList forever. Usually, the reason for this is that TLMs have already looked at the TL Entry but are not confident enough to Confirm it or are looking for more inputs from the Member regarding the source, etc. And this delay eventually causes...

    This is to address persistent and lingering questions about FM Appointments: . 1. Being an FM is a service. It is NOT supposed to be some kind of "reward" or "medal" to "deserving" members. The ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE of the process is to promptly handle/look into Reports filed by members, which is expected to...
