This new step of the national transporter is likely to ease people’s dependence on 139 for train status.

To avail the facility, passengers will have to save the number 7349389104 (via MakeMyTrip) on their mobile phones and whenever they want an update, they will have to send a particular train number on the afore-mentioned number through WhatsApp and get the details of the specific train.

Recently, IRCTC had come up with several changes to make the ticket booking and related processes easy and simple for the passengers.

Meanwhile, this new move of the Indian Railways is likely to be received by people overwhelmingly.
