Twitter to be taken Seriously by Railway

Indian railways is all set to take complaints on twitter seriously and resolve the issues within 24 hours of complaint tweeted on twitter.

South east central railway is deriving a formula to take complaints made on social media platforms, twitter and Facebook, seriously. Zonal railway has directed its divisions - Raipur, Bilaspur, and Nagpur to monitor Facebook and Twitter continuously for 24 hours and see if someone has posted something regarding railway services. For this an expert team, which has expertise in handling social media platforms, is also formed.

Post on Twitter and Facebook your railway complaints


The goal of railway is to address the complaints made by public within 25 minutes. At the moment this work is being done by railway's commercial wing. This is because this is the only department of railway which is on duty for 24 hrs, round the clock. Many people tend to send their complaints at railway enquiry number, but they don't get satisfactory answer. Actually railway enquiry is for checking pnr status, finding train between stations, arrival and departure time, route and fare and for other train queries.

People have also started using this facility. Thus far 22 complaints have been taken care of in last 3 days. On Friday, some passenger was charged Rs. 10 instead of Rs.5 for 'pay and use' service. This passenger tweeted the complaint to Zonal Manager at 1 PM afternoon. Taking note of this railway took action against 'pay and use' service manager and even imposed fine of Rs. 500 against him.

While the service seems useful, and railway is also happy to serve people, there is always a flip side to something good. One of the problems that railway is now facing is large number of fake complains being posted through twitter and Facebook. Out of all the complaints almost 99 percent have been found to be fake when railway cross checked it.

Why even hackers don't hack IRCTC ?

The irctc.co.in site - the official railway ticket booking site of India belonging to Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has never been hacked, and there is very less chance of anyone attempting to do so. This might sound strange to you.

In a country like India where due to abundance of talented IT and programming talent, the claim that no one will even attempt to hack IRCTC doesn't seem right.

Especially when there are great benefits of doing so.



Of course new programmers do get excited and try and hack a website. After all what it requires is some good and intelligent programming. Although there are no known hacks, some well known hackers might be considering making an autobot that will just require to fill in captcha at the time of ticket booking. Basically on one single click the bot will automatically try to book Tatkal ticket at 10 am and will prompt you only for captcha. Captcha can also be bypassed though. No one has yet created such a hack. However …
