IT enabled Parcel System and Reservation on Demand by 2020 in Railways

New Delhi: With Train Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) is on the advanced stage of testing, Indian Railways are mulling for computerised parcel system and reservation on demand by 2020 in the country.

These announcements were made by the Railway Board chairman A K Mittal during his visit to Research Designs and Standards Organisation (RDSO) here yesterday.

“At present the details of all the parcels sent through Railways was being done manually and due to this many a time the parcels get lost midway or reach somewhere else than their real destinations. We are trying to aggregate the bulk and retail parcels sent through Railways. The new system will have a tracking system too so that one can know where the parcel has reached,” the chairman told reporters here after attending the Annual Governing Council Meeting of the RDSO.
