Reliance Jio has now introduced a dedicated JioRail app for JioPhone and JioPhone 2 feature phone users in India. The JioRail app is powered by IRCTC and it allows users to book and cancel tickets by using debit cards, credit cards and e-wallets, check PNR status, train information, timings, routes, seat availability and several other services. “In its continued effort towards building a Digitally empowered India, Jio is redefining convenience for its users yet again,” said the Mukesh Ambani-owned telco in a press statement. The JioRail app can be downloaded for free via Jio App Store. This move from Jio comes after the introduction of two long-validity plans for JioPhone users. As of now, it’s unknown whether the JioRail app is available for other KaiOS devices like the Nokia 8110 4G. msnTarGet.com

Back at the launch of JioPhone 2, the company stated that it has over 25 million JioPhone users, which is an incredible number considering the original JioPhone was released back in June 2017. At the moment, we don’t have the exact JioPhone subscriber base, but it’s expected to be over 40 million. Jio’s aim was to achieve 100 million JioPhone users which could happen in the next couple of years. Fun2ind.com

When you choose to fly, then every airlines provide this facility to choose your own berth, and check which seats are vacant. Often, to choose the best seats, passengers are asked to even pay extra amount.

Now, Indian Railways will soon launch a similar service, and it shall be free. How will this work? And what are its advantages?

Keep reading to find out more on msnTarGet.com!

Indian Rail Will Allow Passengers To Choose Berths

Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has asked Railway officials to enable a system, wherein any rail passenger can view vacant seats, and then choose the one which he or she desires.

This would be based on the airlines model.

An unnamed Rail official said, “Just like airlines, Railways is planning to enable passengers to see the status of seats by making the reservation charts public.”

As per reports coming in, the vacant berths would be colored differently so that the passenger can make an informed decision.

How Will It Work?

This is a possible process:
  • Passenger logs into IRCTC website/app to book a ticket.
  • While completing the transaction, a new window will pop-up wherein the passenger can view all vacant seats in a train, based on coaches. Hence, vacant seats in coach B1, coach B2 and so on.
  • Depending on the preferences, the passenger can book a berth, and confirm it.

Note here, that lower berths would be still reserved for senior citizens and women, under this new system.

Another option can be, that once the ticket has been booked, the passenger can use the PNR number to select the best berth, by opening a dedicated portal meant for this facility. This is again, based on airlines’ current system.

Selection Shall Be Free

Unlike airlines, which charge extra for selecting the best seats, this facility to choose berth in trains shall be free as of now MsnTarGet.com.

Based on the age and sex of the passenger, the available seats would be displayed, under different colors. However in order to implement this, Railways will need to display the reservation status of the entire train, which may take up time.

Earlier, Indian Railways had announced that ticket checkers would be enabled with hand-held devices to give real-time information about vacant berths to passengers.

We will keep you updated, as more details come in.

Railways have always been Indians’ preferred mode of transport and the credit goes to Indian Railways. Indian Railways has always strived to deliver the best possible service to its loyal customers.

Be it reducing the ticket prices or spending a 600 crore budget on improving rail coaches or announcing interesting offers to passengers who book their tickets online, Indian Railways is constantly bringing about a change for the betterment of trains and comfort of passengers. So what is new?

More Reserved Seats for Women

Indian Railways has always been gender sensitive and this goes on to prove it. As per the new notice issued, there are six sleeper class berths for female passengers, irrespective of age, group or individual travel. A circular issued on November 30 specified that the new quota is in addition to the previous quota of four lower berths set aside per coach for senior citizens, pregnant women and women above 45 years of age.

Trains That Will Offer This Benefit

Passengers who will travel 3AC class of all Rajdhani, Duranto and other fully air-conditioned trains except the Garib Rath Express will be able to avail this facility.

Indian Railways Embrace Solar Power To Save Money

Maintaining an innovative approach, Indian Railways plans to set up solar power plants of 30 gigawatts (GW) capacity to optimize the energy utilized by railways.

Reports state that under the first phase, 10 GW energy is planned to be generated that will help the railways lower their energy bill by Rs 30,000 crore each year.

“It has been decided that there is a potential to set up 30 GW solar power [plants] in which we will be having solar panels along the tracks and unutilized land. In the first phase, we will be going for only 10 GW and the formalities for the same are being worked out. Solar Energy Corporation of India (SEC) will most likely be tasked to issue the tender.”

51,000 hectares of vacant land is available as of now but the project will be carried out only on the patches suitable for it.

Presently, Indian Railways is awaiting the No Objection Certificate from various states out of which some states have already granted them the NOC.

While Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Bihar, Karnataka, Rajasthan have given their NOCs, West Bengal, Orissa, Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala have refused to do the same.

As the Indian Railways strives for the comfort of passengers and takes a huge step towards an improved economy through this solar power plant initiative, we can rest assured that a better tomorrow is on the horizon.
