Real Train Information System (RTIS) for tracking of trains

Real Train Information System (RTIS), used for accurate train tracking, has been gaining popularity as it provides much required service to the train passengers.The Indian Railways has launched the Real Train Information System (RTIS) for public in October 2011. Some private service providers are also providing the same facility in mobile apps which show the running status of trains.With the emerging of mobile apps, now passengers are able to track any train on mobile phones. Railway officials at every railway station give inputs for this service. They have to tell verbally to the RTIS centres.According to the railway officials, the railway master informs the RTIS centres on phone about the arrival and departure time of trains.”In the era of information technology, every second is worthwhile. The RTIS is an advanced technique which provides accurate information about the trains. Railways is getting good response of this application,” said Ravinder Sharma, Station Supervisor.”When a train departures from the station, we inform to the RTIS centre at Ferozepur. They update the status on the live route chart which is connected with satellite. Passengers can track it online within seconds,” added Sharma.Rajat Kumar, a local resident, “I often use this application to locate the train. It is very useful application. Earlier, we used to call railway inquiry to get the information. But now, we can easily track any of the trains. I left my place according to the information. It saves times as I had to sit idle at the Railway Station waiting for the arrival of the train.”
