For all friends of Indian Railways:
Rates Branch System (RBS) helps the Indian Railways to find the shortest distance between the stations for coaching and goods traffic.
The site is accessible at http://rbs.indianrail.gov.in/ShortPath/index.jsp
Very useful site!

Please elaborate. Are there errors in the distance tables?
So far I have only noticed only a few wrong station codes.

What I did notice is if you backtrack on the URL you simply get lead to a mirror of the Railways booking site. http://rbs.indianrail.gov.in/

I'm not sure what good knowing those distances will be to the average passenger, but it may be a handy tip.

It was reported on IRFCA that this site gave a wrong distance between Howrah and Jodhpur!!!

You may make a few attempts to know the correct picture, whenever you find time.
