Mobile SMS now to be treated as authentic rail tickets !


Indian Railways has unveiled a new facility, which will allow passengers to book railway tickets through their mobile phones and use the text message received on their mobile phones by Indian Railways as a valid ticket.

With this new facility Passengers don’t have to carry paper printouts of their e-Tickets anymore and passengers will now get a ticket through SMS in 20 minutes.

The m-ticket service is part of the new website launched recently, which will provide all enquiries like train alert, PNR status, train status, seat availability, train schedule, time table and fare on a single website.

A passenger has just to show the SMS to the ticket collector, backed up by a photo ID to travel on train. The facility of booking tickets through the web portal will be available between 12.30 am and 11.30 pm on a daily basis. Railway officials said the newly launched e-ticketing facility bars travel agents and such bulk customers from using the service.
