  • Rail commuters can now use a mobile app to obtain tickets in the unreserved category.
  • The app, called UTS, is now available via the Google Play store & Windows Store.
  • Developed by Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS), ‘utsonmobile’ — the paperless unreserved ticketing feature in mobile application aims to eliminate the need for printing of unreserved tickets.

On wednesday, railway Minister Suresh Prabhu introduced from Delhi, the mobile app for paperless unreserved ticketing for commuters in Egmore and Tambram suburban sections in Chennai under Southern Railway zone. On a pilot basis, the paperless ticketing system in unreserved segment will cover 15 stations in the suburban section of Southern Railway, officials said.  Railways plan to extend the paperless service in suburban section in all metros.

Payment for the ticket is done through the “railway wallet” feature in the app. After booking the ticket, the passenger will get ticket confirmation screen, which will contain limited information about the ticket, officials said.The passenger has to use the ticket within an hour of booking the ticket as per the policy of suburban sections. Also, the ticket will have distinct colour scheme everyday and it cannot be forwarded to another mobile, they said.
