Award winning website, IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation), one of the largest and fastest growing e-commerce sites in Asia-Pacific, has gone mobile.
IRCTC, which offers web-based ticket booking and other services, has launched a mobile application for Windows phones, tablets and Windows 8 system-enabled PCs. You can now book train tickets, check and maintain PNR status, train routes, train availability and cancel your tickets, all on your mobile phone.

Chairman and Managing Director of IRCTC, Rakesh Tandon said, the app is ideal for modern consumers who are always on the move. He said that Windows offers the requisite security handling vast amounts of personal and financial user data.

Once you register, the app generates a 4 digit TPIN password, which can be saved in the app so you needn’t log in each time you access it. The stylish interface is user friendly and it auto-saves data on your phone, so you can retrieve it if you lose your connection during a booking process. It does not however, synchronise data with your website account, which is big drawback.According to IRCTC the facility is not available between 8 AM and noon, and between 11:30 PM and 12.30 AM. The app can be downloaded from the Windows mobile app store.
