Catering to the growing demand of mobile users, Railways has taken steps for providing more mobile charging points in sleeper and unreserved general class coaches to help passengers.
"Earlier, there were only eight mobile charging points in a coach. However, in keeping pace with the changing times, we have decided to increase the number of sockets to 18 as the use of mobile phone and laptop have gone up considerably," said a senior Railway Ministry official.
So far, 7977 Sleeper coaches and 4634 general coaches have been provided with 18 mobile charging
points per coach. All AC coaches have already been equipped with sufficient mobile charging points
Enhancing passenger amenities, railways have equipped many major stations with WiFi facility. The facility is already operational at many stations including Bhubaneswar, New Delhi, Mumbai, Howrah, Bangalore, Chennai among others.

Very practical step. This should have been done much earlier as not much investment is required but the convenience to traveling public has a much greater value.
At last IR has realised, although after much delay, that the mobile has already reached the lowest economic strata amongst Indians. Today mobile has become very cheap and is necessity for rich and poor alike.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
