Now, get train tickets on mobile

Railway passengers can now get their e-tickets on their cell phones instead of having to take printouts.
Named as ‘m-ticket,' the mobile phone-based ticket booking system envisages a passenger to book the ticket through mobile phones and carry the display ticket, sent to the cell phone by an SMS.

“The passenger need not carry a printout of his or her ticket and will have to just show the SMS,” said a senior Railway Ministry official.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee launched the facility on Thursday at a programme in Kolkata. The official said that a person having Internet connection on a mobile can avail the facility by downloading the mobile ticketing application on the phone from the new Indian Railways portal.
M-ticket is a part of the comprehensive Indian Railways web portal, with the URL www.indianrailways.gov.in, which has been launched to consolidate all the services and information on a single window web interface for the public.
