DH News Service Bangalore:
The Bangalore City - Hubli Jan Shatabdi express train, on Sunday, became the first train of Indian Railways to have the Global Position System based Location Announcement System. This system helps passengers identify the upcoming station. Union Minister of State for Railways R Velu inaugurated the system in Bangalore..

The South Western Railway introduced the system in association with Vale Communications, a Bangalore-based company. Presently the announcement system has been introduced in English, Hindi and Kannada languages, the minister said.

Apart from the location, the system displays messages of the Railways, speed of the train, distance covered, distance of the approaching station and approximate time to reach the next station.

The system has been implemented at a cost of Rs 16 lakh, he said.

Replying to a question, Mr Velu said, the Indian Railways would extend the system to all other trains after studying the responses for the introduction in Bangalore City-Hubli train.
