Rediff launches Train Fare Search

Rediff has launched Train Fare search that enables users to check availability of seats with fares, check PNR status, get detailed schedule of trains including real-time arrival and departure status by using a simple search engine query.

I believe Rediff is right in it’s positioning as a utlity search engine (few days back they launched product search).

The site is nicely done (very neat interface) and as of now, it doesn’t allow ticket booking (Indian Railways still hasn’t opened up the API).

ClearTrip has also launched it’s train search service.

Your opinion?
