RailMitra: A Start-up India Recognized Start-up Revolutionizing the Indian Railway Journey Planning In India

Indian Railways gains Rs. 750 crores as cancellation charge every year consistently. The vast majorities of these bookings are worthless and can be prevented using a platform which gives information about Indian Railway train enquiries. 

Because of these disruptive operations of Indian Railways, train travel in India was a chaotic experience. We always come across delays of trains, unavailability of train seats, and a last-minute change in platform. Passengers often suffered many difficulties until new-age start-up businesses like RailMitra revolutionized the Indian Railway journey.
