Railway officials on Wednesday said the train tracker that they had introduced in January was being replaced with a new tracking system.
The National Stock Exchange (NSE) said in a statement that the tracking system that it has now introduced will now be based on a “new and unique system”.
“It will include more sensitive and timely information to allow us to respond quicker to all alerts and incidents and to ensure a smooth and timely journey for all passengers.
This will also give us more confidence in the tracking of the train,” the NSE said.
It is not the first time that the NSPL has been criticised over its track tracking system in the past.
In April this year, a train tracker system was also brought into service on an Indian Express train that was carrying the company’s CEO Ravi Shankar Prasad.
Prasad had allegedly posted a tweet in which he alleged that the railway had “no security in trains” as he had travelled by train from Mumbai to Chennai in a week.
