An app for tracking rail ticket confirmation

Getting a confirmed rail ticket to reach home during festival seasons and summer months is a lottery for many.

A solution to this is RailYatri app, which can be downloaded from Google Playstore or by a missed call to 08080809551. The free train app can predict, plan, track, and share your train trip in an organised manner, says Manish Rathi, Chief Executive Officer & Co-founder,

‘Seat Availability Forecast’ predicts the chances of a ticket getting confirmed and helps commuters to be smart and plan their trips better.

“We use over 2 million PNR data points, largest compared to any other prediction system, and we add more data points every minute,” Mr. Rathi says.

How does it predict seat confirmation probability? The app analyses ticket confirmation data for similar tickets and trains in the past and rate the chances. Users do not have to ask around for the confirmation chances of the ticket and can save time via RailYatri prediction.

The app helps share real-time trips, which enables family and friends to check how journey is progressing by checking location in the app.
