Thus the system requires a fast and relevant information dissemination platform which can push information in a rapid manner to people at the right time. Finally, Railways has found a way for passengers to get alerts as easily and swiftly as weather alerts.”
NRAS uses a customized algorithm that determines impact of various travel related announcements that include (new trains, cancellations, delays,stoppages) as well as incidents (accidents and planned blockages) and events (historic, current and national). Through this service, travelers can receive timely personalized messages about specific train or travel or station on mobile about six months  in advance. 
How to use
To use NRAS, you can simply enter station/train/journey/PNR details on your mobile phone (called as my-NRAS) and the system will display  relevant alerts . There is also a special feature for regular commuters to specify their regular routes and view alerts on their way.
What does offer?
My-NRAS includes a comprehensive database of major recurring events (religious/community gatherings, examination gatherings, weather events, etc.) which are known to result in heavy rush at specific locations (called as 'Hot Spots') and warns users in advance if their travel takes them through one or more hotspots.
