Now you can check Train Status Live on WhatsApp

Indian Railways has now partnered with MakeMyTrip to provide live status updates of trains through WhatsApp by which it could be much closer to its users.

This is one of the many initiatives
undertaken by the Indian Railways to improve customers travel experience by which Passengers can get updates regarding train timings, booking status, cancellation, platform number on which the train will arrive, by sending a request through WhatsApp. This will alleviate people's dependence to call on 139 to get train status. 

To get activated with this features, Users should save 7349389104 (via MakeMyTrip) on their mobile phones. When an update is required, they will have to send a specific train number on the afore-mentioned number through WhatsApp, and details of the respective train will be provided to them.

Train number won't reach the server until they see two blue ticks on the WhatsApp text, which indicates that the message was delivered successfully.
