IRCTC introduces new facility to book unreserved train tickets
New Delhi: Here’s a good news for lakhs of train commuters as the Indian Railways has introduced a new mobile application enabling booking and cancellation of unreserved tickets.
The railway ministry, in a statement on Wednesday, said that the app will also enable issue and renewal of season and platform tickets, check and load R-wallet balance and help maintain user profile management and booking history.
The utsonmobile’ application developed by the Centre for Railway Information System (CRIS) is available for both Android and Windows smart phones. Users can download this app from Google Play Store or Windows store free of cost, PTI reported.
The R-Wallet can be recharged either at any of the UTS counter or through recharge option available in the https://www.utsonmobile.indianrail.gov.in website.
NOTE: No advance ticket booking is allowed since the app is only for unreserved tickets.
“The passenger can travel without taking hard copy of the ticket. Whenever ticket checking staff asks for ticket, the passenger will use ‘Show Ticket’ option in the app,” the statement said.
