Train tracking service launched by Indian Railways

Indian Railways has launched an online real-time train tracking service for passengers called RailRadar.

The web service at has been jointly developed by Centre for Railway Information Service (CRIS), the information technology arm of Indian Railways and RailYatri team (Stelling Technologies), a start-up that has partnered with Railways to provide real-time train information.

The application tracks 6,500 passenger trains out of the 10,000 trains operated by Indian Railways.

The service was launched a conference organised by Delhi based Medianama, a digital media publication.

Sunil Bajpai, group general manager at CRIS said at the conference: “The app does have APIs for the service but it does not intend to open them to developers in the near term, although it might do so in the future.”

Currently, the service is only available for passenger trains.
