For instance in the event that you are reserving a ticket from station An, it may indicate holding up rundown however when you book it from a past station you may get the ticket. In the event that you attempt to discover such stations physically it gets to be intense yet our application has mechanized this,” the application’s co-engineer Runal Jaju told PTI.

He then reached his cousin, a software engineering understudy in NIT, who did the coding part for the application.
