Indian Railways runs more than 10000 trains every day. To strengthen the Management Information System (MIS) such as Passenger Reservation System, Control Office Application and other softwares, it has become necessary to integrate passenger and suburban train services. Hence it has been decided to replace the current four digit numbers with 5 digit numbers.
The smooth replacement will take place by prefix of 1 to all existing trains. As for the special trains presently running during holidays or festival the train numbers will be prefixed by zero. However no change in names of trains is envisaged. With the new number of trains coming into force, from December 20, 2010 better dissemination of information is expected. The new number will cover all the passenger trains running in the Indian Railways network.
