IRCTC Launches Train Ticket Booking Facility through Mobile Phone


Now you can book for your train by your fingers.! yeah , that now the IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation) has launched train booking facility through your mobile  phone, a PSU under Rail way ministry ..[...]
But you wanted a mobile phone supporting software installation and internet facility.Initially the software needs registration to work

When you book for a train through your phone you will receive a Reservation message including full details of your train ticket including PNR,Train NO. , Date of your Journey and Class .which would be treated at par with the print-out of the e-ticket which at present is taken out by the passengers and is known as Electronic Reservation Slip (ERS).

If you could not take a print out of your ticket which you got as a E-ticket ( message) , you can show your reservation message when the ticket checker asks for the ticket.

The passenger has to register at the time of first transaction and thereafter book the ticket using his ID and password. The service was introduced on a pilot basis for a few and now the more than a thousand users are availing this facility everyday.
The service charge is similar to e-tickets- Rs 10 for Sleeper class and Rs 20 for other higher class.
