Indian Railways Seat Availability
Indian Railways uses an innovative approach in sharing information about the availability of reservations on its network of trains. At any of the online sites, a form is shown that lets a user choose an option that is related to major stations. This approach eliminates questions about travel between stations that are not usually chosen. Many options give a user complete control over obtaining pertinent information about train travel and reservations.
Efficient search procedures
To make the search faster and as efficient as possible, the user may select one of three options that appear below the inquiry boxes. One option takes the user to a certain site to check on trains between a pair of stations, and a specific date is not required. Another option takes users to a different site to get a list of trains available when the station code is known. A third option provides a list of trains when the station code is not known.
Availability of information
An extraordinary amount of information is available to the traveler who may choose to examine the menu options that are provided. One may select train running information, and that leads the user to a site with an amazing array of topics. Some topics that are shown include tourist information, fares and time tables. A return to the main site to select another topic likewise leads to a sub-menu filled with more options.
When one hovers the cursor over train type information, the system reveals a sub-menu showing choices that include luxury trains, tourist trains and super-fast trains. The abundance of information on site with its sub-menus is truly amazing. Any train traveler has every opportunity to obtain all the information necessary for a pleasant trip with no delays or problems.
