- The service, a joint initiative of the IRCTC and Bharat BPO, is available through voice call on Railways enquiry number 139.
- The user needs to enter the required data such as PNR number, station name, STD code of station while calling up 139 for getting the wake-up alarm.
- The system will check current position of the train before sending the alert call.
