Railways passenger reservation to be shut down for 6 hours for 1 week

NEW DELHI: For the next seven days, the passenger reservation system (PRS) will be shut down for six hours every day between 11.30 pm and 5.30 am till November 21. During these hours facilities like ticket reservation, current booking and inquiry services won’t be available.
The railway ministry said this is being done as part of its efforts to normalise passenger services and revert in a phased manner to the pre-Covid levels of service. On Friday, it announced to do away with the “special” tag attached to all trains and had also said the train numbers won’t have “0” as the first digit.
On the shut down of PRS services, it said, “This is to enable upgradation of system data and updating of new train numbers. Since huge amount of past (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 minimise the impact on services,” it said. Except for PRS services, all other services will continue uninterrupted.
