Indian Railways launches ticket booking app for Android, Windows phones; here’s how to buy General category tickets


As of today, rail commuters can use a mobile phone app to obtain tickets in the unreserved or general category as the Indian Railways takes forward its initiative for paperless ticketing.

“We have launched a mobile-based paperless unreserved ticketing application,” said a senior Railway Ministry official.

Apart from being a green initiative, the paperless ticketing system would also save time for passengers as it allows them to avoid lining up at the ticket window.

Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu introduced the mobile app for paperless unreserved ticketing for commuters in Egmore and Tambram suburban sections in Chennai under Southern Railway zone.

Developed by Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) “utsonmobile” – the paperless unreserved ticketing feature in mobile application aims to eliminate the need for printing of unreserved tickets. More info
