The move of the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) to allow booking ticket on mobile phones has given a new wing to Indian smartphone users. Considering high number of people accessing internet through mobile, this move by the IRCTC seems useful. The major benefit of the move is – people can book ticket on-the-go. They need not wait to reach home and access Internet through computer or laptop to book a ticket.
It is very easy to book ticket on mobile phone. Just click the link - irctc.co.in/mobile . Complete the initial registration and download the subsequent software. After these initial procedures, users will be able to book the ticket. Once the booking is through, users will receive their railway ticket booking details such as PNR number, date of journey, train number, and other required things.
It is to note that the mobile ticketing will also play major role in saving paper. Ticket printout is not required as in e-ticket. Virtual message received on mobile phone will be equivalent to the printout of the e-ticket. Showing the reservation message of the confirmed ticket on their mobile during travel will be sufficient.
