Travelling on a train can get hectic at times. It is not always the most luxurious mode of transportation. Things like staying wide awake to get down from the train at their arrival destinations are a great issue for every passenger. The good news is that passengers do not have to worry about waking up at arrival time by themselves anymore. Very recently, Indian railways initiated a great facility of giving a ‘wake-up call’ to the passengers travelling a long distance.

Indian Railways Will Give You A Wake-Up Call Prior To Reach Your  Arrival Destination

Passengers will now be notified before arriving at their destination by the Indian Railways. They can sleep peacefully without the stress of thinking about when to wake up and get down from the train. The ‘wake-up call’ facility will alert the long-distance passengers 20 minutes prior to arriving at the station. This is a huge concern for passengers travelling at night. And now they do not have to worry about missing the station anymore. The passengers can presently use this facility from 11 pm to 7 am.
