On the face of it, this may look like just another simple service. But ask any regular train traveler, he will tell you how difficult it becomes to have a sound sleep in train when one is not sure at what time a train would reach a particular station. At most time a passenger has an idea about the time at which a train reaches the station, especially when it is running as per schedule. There are online services to find the train schedule. But the real problem comes when train is running late, and chances are that it will continue to get delayed between the stations. Then it is hard to predict at what time the train will reach. Also if one is going to particular city for the first time, one is not that much attentive and is likely to miss the stations. It is difficult to sleep.

To solve the above problem, IRCTC has come up with the alert/ alarm service to which a user can subscribe to and retire to sleep without having worry to miss the station.
