It categorises information like ‘fog reporting on routes in last 24 hours', 'currently running fog affected trains’, ‘cancellations and diversions’ and ‘trains rescheduled from origination’.
Fog induced delays during winter is a major cause of concern not only for the passengers but for the railways too.
Passengers travelling via Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Delhi and Punjab are worst hit during this season, with delays going up to even 24 hours.
Northern railways have already cancelled a number of services to handle movement of traffic in inclement weather effectively.
"Decisions of planning or travelling via trains can be smarter, if information reaches passengers on time. With this initiative, we not only bring train information but also route, station status," said group general manager of CRIS Sunil Bajpai.
"This is a pilot and based on the success we can also experiment to see how other weather issues can be communicated," added Sunil Bajpai.
