What's a Good Way to Find the Status of Indian Railway Trains?

As of October 2015, the Indian Railway allows passengers to check the status of trains through the National Train Enquiry System. Passengers can consult this official notification system on the Indian Railway website. It is also available through the system's iOS, Android or Windows 8 app.

Aside from real-time status inquiries of all Indian trains, the National Train Enquiry System also provides train schedules, cancellations and route diversions. Users can check what trains stop at a specific station as well as consult which trains travel between which stations. The Live Station feature shows which trains are arriving or departing a particular station. In addition, the app notifies passengers of the platform where the train arrives.
