Indian Railways is the fourth largest railroad network in the world and that is no mean record. It is a lifeline for connecting the vast corners of the country such as Kashmir and Kanyakumari; Kutch and Arunachal. However Railways fell from grace and the last few decades have seen a shift in tendency from rail travel to air travel. Most people feel that travelling in India trains is not easy notwithstanding they have time on hand. Ticket bookings, reservation (PNR) status, ordering food were tedious activities.
Bingo! The portal Railyatri.in can be a great solution.
As the name indicates, Railyatri is geered towards facilitating the railway traveller. It is a comprehensive online platform where a railway passenger can not only book tickets and check the booking status but complete host of activities in connection with the journey. The portal has a systematic design where user friendly tabs clearly indicate each activity. The key tabs that we found very useful are the ones for train ticket booking, ordering meals on train, PNR status and confirmation, seat availability, Live train status and platform locator to name a few. We are pleasantly surprised to know that the portal railyatri.in is not restricted to just train journeys. To cover last mile connectivity issues, Railyatri.in has cab booking arrangement as well. For the smart generation they have an equally efficient app that can be used on the go. Now what can be more contemporary that that?
And that is not all. The Railyatri blog on the portal is a collection of posts and travelogues regarding various travel destinations. It can most certainly be a handy resource for any traveler looking out for new destinations.
Its good to see that Indian Railways are spreading their arms and metamorphosing out of their unfashionable garb to a cooler avatar. Personally rail journeys bring back a whole lot of nostalgia. They are a great way to not only to enjoy the destination but also the the journey and see the beautiful country side and meandering mountain roads of India up and close.
We encourage our readers to try a rail trip as a sheer fun-do. To this end, Railyatri.in portal will surely be of assistance.
