Good News - रात की ट्रेनों में सफर करने वाले यात्रियों को अब अपने गंतव्य स्टेशन पर उठने के लिए मोबाइल में अलार्म लगाने या कोच में किसी की मदद मांगने की जरूरत नहीं रहेगी।..

रात की ट्रेनों में सफर करने वाले यात्रियों को अब अपने गंतव्य स्टेशन पर उठने के लिए मोबाइल में अलार्म लगाने या कोच में किसी की मदद मांगने की जरूरत नहीं रहेगी। रेलवे खुद यात्री को उसके गंतव्य स्टेशन पर पहुंचने से आधा घंटे पहले फोन कर बताएगा कि स्टेशन आने वाला है। यात्री को नींद से उठाने के लिए रेलवे अलार्म की सुविधा भी देगा। इन सेवाओं के लिए यात्री को रेलवे की एकीकृत पूछताछ सेवा 139 पर अपने मोबाइल से कॉल या एसएमएस करना होगा। यह सुविधा वैसे तो नि:शुल्क रहेगी लेकिन कॉल व एसएमएस का सामान्य चार्ज लगेगा। दरअसल देर रात या अलसुबह आने वाले गंतव्य स्टेशनों पर नींद नहीं खुलने से कई बार यात्री दूसरे स्टेशन पहुंच जाते हैं। रेलवे ने इस समस्या का निदान ढूंढ़ते हुए अपनी पूछताछ सेवा पर आईवीआर तकनीक से इस सुविधा को जोड़ते हुए यात्रियों को स्टेशन आने का अलर्ट देने व नींद से जगाने के लिए अलार्म की सुविधा शुरू कर दी है। पीएनआर नंबर बताओ, कॉल आ जाएगी: यात्री को मोबाइल से 139 नंबर डायल करना होगा। नंबर डायल करने पर पहले अपनी पसंद की भाषा का चयन करना होगा। डेस्टिनेशन अलर्ट के लिए पहले 7 नंबर दबाना होगा फिर 2 नंबर। यात्री से उसके दस अंकों का पीएनआर नंबर पूछा जाएगा। पीएनआर नंबर डायल करने के बाद उसे कंफर्म करने के लिए 1 नंबर डायल करना होगा। सिस्टम पीएनआर नंबर का सत्यापन कर गंतव्य स्टेशन के लिए अलर्ट फीड कर देगा। यात्री को इसका कंफर्मेशन मैसेज भी मिलेगा। यात्री जब ट्रेन में सफर कर रहा होगा तो उसका गंतव्य स्टेशन आने से पहले मोबाइल पर कॉल आएगी। यात्री जब तक उस कॉल को अटेंड नहीं करेगा, रेलवे का सिस्टम कॉल करता रह: नींद से उठाने के लिए अलार्म: यात्री को डेस्टिनेशन स्टेशन की तरह अलार्म सेट करने की सुविधा भी 139 नंबर पर मिलेगी। डेस्टिनेशन अलर्ट की तरह ही इसका भी प्रोसेस रहेगा। यात्री ट्रेन में सफर के दौरान बीच के किसी स्टेशन पर उठना चाहता है तो उस स्टेशन का एसटीडी कोड डायल करना होगा। यह सुविधा ऑप्शन 7 सलेक्ट करने के बाद 1 डायल करने पर मिलेगी। यह लगेगा शुल्क: डेस्टिनेशन अलर्ट व वेक-अप अलार्म के लिए मेट्रो सिटी के यात्रियों को मोबाइल कॉल के लिए 60 सैकंड के 1:20 रुपए देने होंगे। नॉन मेट्रो सिटी के यात्रियों के लिए कॉल चार्ज 2 रुपए प्रति मिनट होगी। इसी तरह प्रति एसएमएस 3 रुपए खर्च आएगा। एसएमएस व फोन पर भी अलर्ट यात्री कस्टमर केयर के प्रतिनिधि से 139 नंबर पर बात कर भी अलर्ट की सुविधा ले सकता है। इसके लिए उसे प्रतिनिधि को पीएनआर व मोबाइल नंबर बताना होगा। दोनों नंबर कंफर्म करने पर यह सुविधा मिल जाएगी। इसी तरह एसएमएस से भी अलर्ट की सुविधा ली जा सकती है। यात्री को 139 पर अलर्ट के बाद पीएनआर नंबर लिखकर एसएमएस करना होगा।
