The Indian Railways has said it will close its reservation system for six hours every night till November 21 in order to normalise passenger services and revert to pre-Covid times in a phased manner.
“The activity started on the intervening night of November 14 and 15 and will be continued until the night of November 20 and 21, starting at 23:30 hours and ending at 0530 hrs,” the railways ministry said on Sunday.
The ministry stated that this move will enable the upgradation of system data, new train numbers and other work.
Passenger Reservation System (PRS) services like ticket reservation, current booking, cancellation, enquiry services, among others, will not be available during these six hours.
All other enquiry services, including 139 services, will continue uninterrupted, the ministry noted.
