During the journey, you will have comfortable sleeping
Railways have further improved the 139 service. Many times when we travel in the night, we are very alert till we reach the station, we can not even sleep properly. After this new railway initiative, you can sleep anxious because the railway will awake you by calling yourself on the desired station. Travellers need to activate the wake-up call Destination Alert facility by calling only 139 for this.
