This wake-up call or you may say train destination alarm call facility has been in effect as a pilot initiative by IRCTC and Bharat BPO. This service is available only through voice call 139 and customer service agent. The passenger has to give their PNR number, STD code and the name of the station to get their alarmed set. If everything goes well, a call will alert you 30 minutes before the train arrives to its desired station. If the train goes running late, the alert will also be delayed but the problem is the train can also get late after the wake up call (Just a thought :)).
