IRCTC Live Train Status on WhatsApp: With more and more people having started travelling amid the COVID-19 pandemic, they are taking a lot of precautions and trying to maintain social distancing so that they don’t get infected. And, if you are travelling by train, and do not want yourself getting exposed to COVID-19 by waiting for the train at the platform, you can keep a track of its running status via Facebook-owned- messaging application WhatsApp.
Also, you can keep yourself updated with live train status, PNR status, previous railway station, upcoming station and more. It will eliminate a passenger’s need to dial 139 for live train running status or download some random, third-party apps on the smartphone. Dialling 139 is a cumbersome process and can have a human error, whereas, downloading a third-party app from a random developer is not safe.
Multiple services like Railofy, a Mumbai-based start-up and an online travel major, MakeMyTrip have developed chatbots, which allow you to check the train running status on your phone, the bgr.in reported. Here you will get to know how you can keep yourself updated with live train status, PNR status, previous railway station, upcoming station and more.
