Waiting in long queues to buy tickets at railway stations will now be a thing of the past as the railways’ UTS mobile app for buying unreserved tickets online will be available nationwide from November 1, a senior official said Tuesday.
While the scheme was started four years ago, it failed to catch on among passengers except in Mumbai, where it was first launched because a large number of people travel in locals.
After Mumbai, it was started in Delhi-Palwal and Chennai city.
As of now railway has already implemented the scheme in 15 of its zones with the Northereast Frontier Railway and West Central Railway being the remaining two zones.
The scheme is also open for those who want to buy tickets for travelling long distance.
