Now get a direct train to Katra to visit Vaishno Devi temple

The dream of a rail link that could bring the travellers more closely to the holy shrine of Vaishno Devi came true when the Katra-Udhampur rail link was flagged off a year ago in 2014. Bringing in some more action on this operational line, change in terminals of trains on this route where trains are now originating and terminating from newly-built Katra railway station.

Undoubtedly, this railway link which is a part of Udhampur-Katra-Qazigund-Srinagar-Baramulla Railway line is a crucial project of Northern Railway. Right from Jammu to Katra via Udhampur, cutting through the extremes of cold and heat along with the unfavourable terrain, this railway line consists of seven tunnels and thirty bridges. With this rail line operational, it will enable pilgrims coming to visit Vaishno Devi shrine to travel directly base camp Katra, which will definitely give an easy kick while travelling.

1) 14033 – Delhi – Udhampur Jammu Mail Exp. 14034 – Udhampur- Delhi Jn. Jammu Mail Exp.

Can you ignore the cash-paying customer

Can you ignore the cash-paying customer, less than five per cent of Indians pay online.

India’s first and fastest growing, PGI solves the problem of lack of viable offline payment options with existing bill payment and ticket booking shops  a wide network of more than 10,000+ trusted and net-connected payment points and allowing any business, online or offline, to collect cash payments via the shops.

PGI provides an automated and secure cash collection mechanism for online businesses, which was otherwise absent. Customers can make cash payments towards any business just as they would pay their bills or recharge mobiles at a neighborhood shop.

PGI has already established a network across 1,000 towns and cities. The businesses just have to integrate PGI into their website like a payment method. “Any business that has a lot of remote purchases can use PGI. They need not be online. They can be taking orders over a phone call or SMS.

How it works

PGI, 100 per cent safe payment system integrates the payment option on the checkout page. Anyone who wants to pay via PGI is given an Invoice no and the list of nearby outlets (based on pin code) where the payment can be made. Once the person pays, the merchant is updated real-time. No Manual overheads, Real time notifications, Get cash before delivery, Simplest way to collect cash

With a nationwide presence PGI provides business an unparalleled reach

This is the only reason you should use a travel agent to book a trip

In the age of the internet, travel agents might seem about as useful as flip phones. As dozens of travel websites and apps vie for your business, how is it that the job of travel agent still exists?
We decided to see just how useful travel agents are by planning a hypothetical trip to north India, with multiple stops in different cities. We asked a handful of travel agents to quote us prices for the trip, and then compared those prices to fares we found online ourselves as the price keeps adding on when we reach confirmation page.

The prices we received from four out of five agents were more cheaper that what we had found online ourselves, inkling that they just might not be able to keep up with the world wide web. Also showed us the one excellent reason why travel agents are still relevant – and just might be around for years to come: personal service.

Travel agent Yogesh Patil of PGI took it upon himself to not only search for the flights we had requested, but to build an entire itinerary for the hypothetical trip we had planned. Along with the flights, he sent us prices for various hotels he recommended in each city, both with varying locations and prices, as well as tours, museum tickets, private transfer to and from the airports, and potential rail & bus tickets. Even better, he gave a few personal recommendations, like best mobile top up plans while roaming, travel gears with great discounts, cafes and restaurants.



Rather than spend hours online trying to figure out where to stay, what to see and what to do, it was all right here – and we hadn’t even specified likes and dislikes. I’m sure if we had given her more information she would have created an even better, highly personalized vacation.

Finally, most travel agents won’t charge you for their work (they get paid through hotels, tours and aggregators), so it literally won’t cost you anything to give them a shot.
