The Indian Railways is a shining example of Digital India: in the last four-five years, it has increased its app count drastically.
What started with basics, like booking tickets, now offers an app for almost every service, like ordering food on trains and booking parcels.
That accounts for some 50 apps developed by the Railways itself, plus another 200 by private individuals/firms.

2018Railways has nearly 50 apps, one for each service!
The Indian Railways is a shining example of Digital India: in the last four-five years, it has increased its app count drastically.
What started with basics, like booking tickets, now offers an app for almost every service, like ordering food on trains and booking parcels.
That accounts for some 50 apps developed by the Railways itself, plus another 200 by private individuals/firms.
AppsPassengers can use these apps for various services
For passengers, there's the most important - the IRCTC app - on which you can book tickets.
The 'National Train Enquiry System' (NTES) app allows you to view train schedules and status.
You can download 'Menu on Rail' to order food in trains.
For sending and tracking parcels, there's 'Rail Parcel.'
The latest is 'UTS on Mobile' for booking and cancelling unreserved tickets.
SAARTHISAARTHI: The soon-to-be all-inclusive app
There are apps for employees too. For example, the 'Railway Employee Self Service' (RESS) app, created by a private developer, allows staff members to access their personal data, including salary details, PF, income tax projections and more.
Earlier, one needed to download each individual app for that particular service, but Railways is now integrating all under an umbrella app called SAARTHI, an official said.
Stats30,000 downloads daily, more than 1,00,000 subscribers, claims Railways
App for the Railways are made by its in-house unit called the Centre for Railway Information System (CRIS).
On an average, 30,000 people download its mobile apps daily, Railways said, and it has more than 1,00,000 subscribers.
Private developers harvest Railways' data to build their own apps providing a variety of services.
Most of these are available for both Android and iOS platforms.

    @all: 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...

    @all: 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...

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...

    @all: 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...

    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...
