New Delhi: If you need instant information about availability of seats in trains, don’t move to reservation counters or approach touts, just click on Facebook and get all the details. In a bid to smoothen journey, the Northern Railway has provided all information regarding rail services.  

All you need to visit the Northern railway Facebook page and you can know about the availability of seats, Tatkal tickets, and details of trains of particular routes. The Facebook page will also inform passengers regarding the position of trains including arrival and departure.

The Northern Railway has taken this initiative in order to control malpractices in online ticket bookings and safeguard the passengers from getting duped by ticket agents. Also, it would keep a close watch on TTEs, who slap fines on the errant passengers without giving receipt causing losses to the Railways.

The passengers making journey in emergency have to take the help of travel agents and touts who charge them exorbitantly. Many a times the passengers are handed fake tickets, which does not only causes inconvenience to them but also affects the revenues of the Railways department.
