Now book your train ticket over cell phone
New Delhi, January 3
Booking train ticket was never so easy as you can now get it done through your mobile phone.

After initial registration and downloading of suitable software on the mobile handset with Internet facility, it will be possible for the mobile users to book a ticket through their own mobile phone.
Launched by Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), a PSU under Railway Ministry, has been offering the service of booking e-ticket over the mobile phone, said a senior Railway Ministry official.
After booking, the passenger will receive a reservation message with full details of the ticket, including PNR, train number, date of journey and class. "This virtual message 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)," he said.
Hence, with the virtual message, passengers would not be required to take a print-out of e-ticket to be carried with them. Showing the reservation message of the confirmed ticket on their mobile during travel will be sufficient. — PTI
