In what could be called as another feather in the cap of Indian Railways, the booking of e-Ticket has been initiated over the mobile phone. To bring further convenience to the rail users, the Indian Railway has started the service of booking e-Ticket over the mobile phone. According to an official release issued in New Delhi on Tuesday, passengers can book a ticket through their mobile phone after initial registration and downloading of suitable software.
The passenger will receive a reservation message with full details of the ticket including PNR, Train No, date of journey and class after booking. This virtual message will be treated at par with the print-out of the e-Ticket which at present is taken out by the passengers.
