Union Ministry of Railways has launched Unreserved Mobile Ticketing facility (UTS on Mobile) to enable seamless booking of unreserved tickets including season tickets and also platform tickets all over Indian Railways. This will remove the need for passengers to wait in queues for purchasing the tickets.
UTS on Mobile aims to promote three C’: Cashless transactions (Digital payment), Contact less ticketing (no need to physically visit the point of sale) and Customer convenience and experience. With this, booking of unreserved tickets on all non-suburban sections across all Zonal Railways will be now made available on mobile.

The facility for booking unreserved tickets is available through ‘UTSONMOBILE’ app, available for mobile phones with Android, IOS and windows operating systems. The process of ticket booking involves downloading application on mobile phone and registration by furnishing the necessary details.

The payment can be made by user digitally using R-Wallet, debit card, credit card, net-banking, UPI and other e-wallets.
This environment friendly initiative will allow seamless booking of unreserved tickets all over Indian Railways. It will obviate need for passengers to wait in queues for purchasing tickets. It will also enhance experience for booking unreserved tickets i.e. for journey, platform tickets, season tickets etc.
