For those who wish save money: If you want to travel from Coastal Odisha to Howrah for sunday arrivals , and unable to get confirm ticket (or wish to save some money like me) , then just take a unreserved ticket for Howrah and board this train (on saturday night departure from puri). Go to general bogie and alas you will feel as if you are inside a reserved bogie. The coaches are completely empty (whereas shri jagannath express general coaches crowd is very famed). Just board your coach and choose whichever seat you want and go to sleep calmly. Nobody will disturb you as hardly anybody boards. All the crowds are swept away by Shri jagannath express.

a good night's sleep, wake up at 6 am and you will find yourself near Hijli. Pack up and alight the train at KGP. Then board any local (Lots of local are present and your same unreserved ticket till HWH will work) bound to HWH. Preferable wait for the Meedinipur Howrah Local and by 9-9.30 am you will be at HWH. So for total journey taken from Puri to HWH, then you will cover it in exactly in 9hr which is much lesser the time taken by Shri jagannath express (which takes 9hrs 40min). Plus nearly Rs 135 saving without any compromise for leisure. PS: This trick only works for saturday night (this train) and friday night (VSKP Digha SF runs on Fridays on same slot). And this will not work for any other day. So before planning anything, kindly check out your date & day of journey.

This is to formally announce the END of the RailCal app. Due to the information blockade, the app has lost its value, and has been rendered completely useless. We are unable to support RailCal anymore. Sorry to disappoint our users.
RailCal has already been taken off the Google PlayStore. So once...
At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...
The following changes are being introduced to keep the PNR Forum functioning.
1. A "bookmarklet" called "PNR Refresh" has been created. Just Copy/Paste a small piece of text into your browser bookmarks. The bookmarklet will be available by morning.
2. When you click on Post/Update/Refresh PNR, you will be taken to the Official...
The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...
Starting Monday, we shall be starting the slow Test rollout of our new app - called RailFan.
What is RailFan?
It is expected that RailFan will be the future of the IRI site for mobile phones. A full dedicated offline-capable messaging/blogging app, encompassing all the features of the IRI site. The RailFan app...
There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum:
1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
