Get E-Ticket On Your Cellphone

Rail travellers can now get e-tickets on their cellphones, and won't have to carry print out of tickets.

Called m-ticket, it can be booked by passengers having internet facility by downloading the mobile ticketing application on their cellphones from the railways' new web portal. A passenger can book train tickets through a mobile phone and carry the display ticket sent to her\his cellphone through an SMS.

The facility is part of comprehensive Indian Railways Portal, www.indianrailways.gov.in, which was launched by West Bengal chief minister Mamata Bannerji in Kolkata on Thursday.

The new portal aims at consolidating all the services and information into a single window web-interface for the public.

On completion of booking and payment formalities, an SMS containing the ticket details will be sent to the user, which is referred to as Mobile Reservation Message (MRM). The cost of MRM from IR web portal will be borne by the Indian Railways. The facility of booking e-tickets through railways' web portal will be available from 12.30 am to 11.30 pm daily.

In addition to facility of e-ticketing provided by the new portal, no travel agents have been allowed so that passengers can have ease of booking during peak hours.

A nice step. But India really needs at least two-fold more number of trains. I never find a train to go long distance if I do not book atleast 45 days ahead of journey. Can we dream for the day when we can book a long distance train whenever required!
