Attn Hyderabad Passengers: Check bookings, SCR Railways are updating train numbers

Hyderabad: South Central Railway has issued an advisory that the Passenger Reservation System of Railway (PRS) will not function between 11:30 pm to 5:30 am from the intervening night of November 14 and 15 to the intervening night of November 19-20.

SCR said that as part of preventive measures to contain the Covid - 19 pandemic, Indian Railways has been introducing train services in a phased manner. Accordingly, some trains during this period had been introduced to operate as Special trains with Special fares. Now, Indian Railways has decided to operate MSPC (Mail / Express Spl) and HSP (Holiday Spl) train services included in the Working Timetable 2021 with regular train numbers and fares as applicable for the concerned classes of travel and type of train, as per extant guidelines. Accordingly, Indian Railways are updating the train numbers of reserved train numbers to reflect this change.

Since huge old train numbers and current passenger booking data are to be updated in all Mail / Express trains, this is being planned in a series of carefully calibrated steps and implemented during night hours in order to minimize the impact on ticketing services.

As part of this Railways efforts to normalize passenger services and revert back in a phased manner to the pre-covid levels of service, the Railways Passenger Reservation System (PRS) will be shut down between 2330 hrs to 0530 hrs from the intervening night of November 14 and 15 to the intervening night of November 19-20.

During these 6 hours (from 23:30 to 0530 hrs) period, no PRS Services (ticket Reservation, current booking, cancellation, etc) will be available. Except for the PRS services, all other inquiry services including 139 services will continue to work uninterruptedly, the SCR statement added.
