Frequently Asked Questions:
Platform Locator helps passengers to know the exact platform number on which desired train usually arrives based on the information of previous history. This is one of the fastest and reliable method to get correct information of platform number on which train arrives.
If you want to know on which platform your train arrives, all you need to do is enter the train name or number in the input box and select the station from the dropdown for which you need to enquire then hit "Get Platform No." button. On doing so, platform number will be displayed along with the details such as arrival departure timing of train on that station, zone and address of that station. Apart from online platform enquiry, you can also enquire for platform no at railway enquiry counter or from the local coolies/hawkers who are there at the platforms regularly.
Most of the time platform information served by IndianTrain is correct but sometimes due to last minute change of platform by station master its information get compromised. As we all know, platform number isn't declared in advance and it's decided by station master before an hour. However, sometimes due to overcrowd of trains on the station they change the platform no without any prior notice. Platform Locator shows the platform no based on the available arrival departure history of train, so to avoid last minute hassle you just need to confirm platform no from railway enquiry counter or from the local coolies/hawkers.
