Advertisment launches national RailYatri alert service

New Update

NEW DELHI, INDIA: Mobility solution provider Stelling Technologies recently launched, a National RailYatri Alert Service (NRAS).


The Delhi based startup claims that the new platform is India's first travel information & advisory alerting platform.

Manish Rathi, CEO, said, "The Indian railway is a very distributed functional system, touching millions of citizens every day. Each day hundreds of announcements, events and incidents occur on this network which impacts millions of travelers."

"Thus, such a system requires a fast and relevant information dissemination platform which can push information in a rapid manner to people at the right time. Finally, railways has found a way for passengers to get alerts as easily and swiftly as weather alerts," added Rathi.


The release further added that, NRAS uses customized algorithm to determine the impact of different types of major travel related announcements (new special trains, cancellations, delays, new stoppages, etc.), incidents (accidents, planned blockages, etc.) and events (historical, current, and upcoming) at a local station or train level.

The platform then provides early alerts to train travelers across nearly 8000 locations in India. Train travelers can view/receive time-sensitive personalized information about specific station or travel on mobile up to 6 months in advance.

The service has initially been launched free to allow users to experience the service and there will be a nominal access charge post the launch period.
