Abstract: Indian Railways is one of the world’s largest railway networks comprising 115,000 km (71,000 mi) of track over a route of 65,000 km (40,000 mi) and 7,500 stations. IR carries about 7,500 million passengers annually or more than 20 million passengers daily (more than a half of which are suburban passengers) and 2.8 million tons of freight daily. Railways are divided into Zones Indian railways has 17 zones (SC, WCR, WR, NFR…). Zones are divided into divisions [Vijayawada division, Bhopal division Varanasi division, Moradabad division, Lucknow division etc.] Divisions are headed by a DRM [Divisional Railway Manager]. Under DRM each department has one officer as in-charge for maintenance of their equipment. Indian Railways has 68 divisions 17 zones. IR NAVIGATION is a web based application which is developed for the purpose of easy identification of trains in different aspects. It is going to provide more useful information to the user regarding the journey (between a source station and a destination station) like connecting trains, type of the trains, fare and time of the journey reducing time complexity.
