How Does NTES Work?

Now you do not need to call the helpline number of Indian Railways and wait for several minutes. You can get the exact information about your train from your mobile, computer or tab. Are you also wondering how NTES works and how NTES gives the live running status of trains? The whole process is extremely easy and requires no GPS and satellite technology. Indian Railways uses Control Office Application (COA) software to track the running of trains in real-time from section control offices located at each divisional headquarters. 


Train arrival/departure and passing details are updated in this system through inputs from station masters which helps controllers to route trains (through signals). NTES directly interfaces with COA from all divisions to show the running status of trains online through various interfaces and channels.
