New Delhi: The rail passengers have a reason to smile as the railways have decided to provide status of vacant berths in all the mail/express trains originating from New Delhi, Delhi Junction and Hazrat Nizamuddin stations on the facebook accounts. The facility is also likely to put a check on black marketing of tickets by TTEs.

The passengers need to have a facebook account to know the availability of berths in the trains. You need to visit ‘Delhi Division, Northern Railway’ page on facebook where you will get detailed information about current status of berth with just a single click on ‘Current Reservation Availability System’.   

Commenting on the issue, Delhi DRM Anurag Sachan said, “The railway is also considering linking Anand Vihar and Delhi Sarai Rohilla stations with facebook page to provide information to the passengers.”

However, the railway had announced to implement this plan in all the five divisions, Delhi, Moradabad, Ambala, Firozpur and Lucknow in 2011but the move didn’t fructify, thanks to lackadaisical attitude of the officials.
