Railway’s reservation system closed for six hours from November

As part of the national transporter’s efforts to normalize passenger services and return to pre-Covid times in a phased manner, the railways’ passenger reservation system will shut down for six hours during the night lean business hours for the next seven days.

The Railway Ministry on Sunday said that the move is to enable upgradation of system data, new train numbers and other functions.

“Since a large amount of past (old train numbers) and current passenger booking data is to be updated on all mail/express trains, this is being employed in a series of carefully calibrated phases and is being carried out at night to minimize the impact. Being implemented during hours on ticketing services.

This activity will start from midnight of 14th and 15th November and will end at 23:30 hrs till the intervening night of 20th and 21st November.

During these six hours (23:30 to 05:30 hours), no Passenger Reservation System (PRS) services like ticket reservation, current booking, cancellation, inquiry services will be available.

Apart from this, railwaymen will ensure advance charting for starting the trains during the affected time. The ministry said that except PRS services, all other inquiry services including 139 services will continue uninterrupted.

“The Ministry of Railways requests its customers to support the Ministry in its endeavor to normalize and upgrade passenger services,” it said.

The Indian Railways on Friday issued an order to discontinue the ‘special’ tag for mail and express trains and revert to pre-pandemic ticket prices with immediate effect.

However, officials said restrictions such as temporary restrictions on concessions, bedrolls and food services would remain in force in view of the pandemic.
