IRCTC launches rail ticket booking facility on mobile phone

A mobile application or software can be downloaded for free from the website of IRCTC, which is essential for booking the ticket on mobile. It says, “Application software has to be downloaded on to the mobile handset.  This software is provided by the respective service providers like atom Technologies, ngpay and PayMate. The application can be downloaded from IRCTC and these companies’ sites.  IRCTC is also likely to launch its own mobile application shortly and the software will be downloadable from www.irctc.co.in.”

The passenger has to register for the first transaction and later the same name user ID and password can be used for future booking. This mobile railway ticket booking service is based on the web services model developed by the IRCTC in order to enable the mobile phone users to access the web based rail ticket reservation and enquiry services similar to www.irctc.co.in.
 
The release said that the, “The customer is charged ticket fare, IRCTC service charge and Agent service charge (Rs.10/- & Rs.20/- as per class of tickets) and applicable payment gateway charges. Service Charge is similar to e-tickets Rs.10/- for SL class and Rs.20/- for other higher class.”

Once the booking is completed, “the passenger will receive a reservation message with full details of the ticket including PNR, train No, date of journey, class and this virtual message would be treated at par with the print-out of the e-ticket… Showing the reservation message of the confirmed ticket on their mobile during travel will be sufficient.” said the Indian Railways in a release.

It is good to keep pace with technology and hence a good move from IRCTC.

But at the same time, it should also give priority to solving manipulations in booking Tatkal tickets which a normal passenger does not get to book easily.
