3 applications were launched on 10th Feb, 2016 by Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu that includes :
- Handheld terminals for Indian Railways travelling ticket examiners (TTEs)
- A paperless unreserved ticketing mobile application
- A facility for E-booking of disposable linen on trains.
Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu said, Indian Railways is heading towards Digital India to bring transparency in Indian Railways and thus these IT enabled applications have been launched.
He further added that these handheld terminals launched in Northern Railways will enable TTEs to update an entire train’s passenger list and highlight vacant berths which can be sent back to HHT application servers, the Passenger Reservation System (PRS) terminals and indianrail.gov website to be viewed.
He later launched unreserved ticketing mobile application ‘UTSONMOBILE’ in South Central Railway which was developed with the help of Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS).
The application was earlier launched in select sectors of South, Western, Northern, Eastern and Central Railways.
