Platform berthing need to be rectified. Last Friday, after checking Indian Railway site, "platform berthing", I was standing on Platform No. 14 at Howrah Station, to catch Coromondal Express along with my family. 5 minutes before schedule departure I reached the platform and could not find any train standing there. When asked, one gentleman said that it now starts from Platform no. 22 which is quite a distance. I was about to miss the train. Requesting CRIS to rectify the system.

You'll get nowhere by asking here.

I think 1 (or 2) new platforms were opened a few months ago at Howrah, there were to accommodate longer trains and ease the crowding at the station, the on-line platform berthing information maybe needs to be updated.

I wonder, have the railways updated the platform berthing information boards at Howrah?

Please look at this thread, even if you are not in India.: Have you seen Jonathan Spollen?

He could be anywhere now: You might have met him, be able to help, or give information.

I forgot to check/enquire the Platform Berthing at Howrah since I was in hurry. I travelled earlier by the same train from platform no. 14, and took it for granted.
