Are you someone who loves sleeping during their journey in Indian railways but ends up travelling to a station far ahead of your destination because of that? If yes, then you are going to love this new service started by the transport service provider!
Indian Railway will now alert its passengers on their registered mobile phone when their destination arrives so that they can prepare themselves for getting off the train at the right station.
This service, named Destination Alert, will be of use especially to those whose destination is left behind because of traveling during the night or traveling alone. Such people will not have to face the trouble of missing their station and also paying the penalty.
One needs to follow a particular process to avail the facility of Destination Alert. Just type “ALERT” followed by your PNR number on your text message box and send to 139. One also needs to make a call to the number 139 after sending this message. Enter your PNR number during the call and this service gets activated.
Once the traveler registers his mobile number for Destination Alert, the alarm on his mobile phone will start ringing before the train reaches the scheduled destination.
