Kolkata, 23rd June, 2018:

With a view to promote unreserved ticket booking through mobile phone, it has been decided that 5 % of the recharge value will be added to the R-wallet as bonus at the time of recharge of R-wallet. This scheme will be in force for a period of three months after which it will be reviewed.

Continuing towards digitalization and moving towards becoming a cashless economy, the initiative of faster and more techno-advanced transactions in Indian Railways is being taken up, the Centre for Railway Information System (CRIS) has developed a mobile based application ‘utsonmobile'. This application has the following features:

2. The 'utsonmobile' application is very handy, free and is available for both Android and Windows smart phone. Users can download this app from Google Play Store or Windows store free of cost.

3. First the passenger will get registered by providing his/her mobile number, name, city, default booking train type, class, ticket type, number of passenger and frequently travelling routes.

4. Upon successful registration, Railway Wallet (R-Wallet) will be created automatically with zero balance to the passenger. There will be no extra cost for creating R-Wallet.

5. The R-Wallet can be recharged either at any of the UTS counter or through recharge option available in the https://www.utsonmobile.indianrail.gov.in website.

6. In case internet connection of the mobile is not up, then ticket booking is not allowed.
