Now you can easily book your railway tickets through your mobile phone! The Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has now launched its mobile website, which is said to be more convenient and easier to use. The mobile site can be accessed via any mobile phone having GPRS functionality.
The mobile site has all the features available in the PC version of the site such as booking history and ticket cancellation. The site supports credit/debit card payments. To access the site, users can use their existing IRCTC id and password. After booking is completed, users will receive a reservation message with full details of the ticket including PNR, Train no., date of journey and class. The message will be tantamount to the print-out of the e-ticket from the IRCTC website.
