After being present on Windows and Android, the IRCTC App has now made its way to the BlackBerry World as well. With the help of this app, users can now make train bookings along with a host of other services by a single tap of a button.
“We are excited to bring the IRCTC application to BlackBerry World. With the increasing smartphone perpetration and the increasing dependence on mobile applications, it is a great opportunity for us to help our customers experience this app for an easy and streamlined train booking service,” said Annie Mathew, Director, Business Development and Alliance, BlackBerry India.
Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation, is a subsidiary of the Indian Railways that handles the catering, tourism and online ticketing operations of the railways. IRCTC recently launched next generation e-ticketing system, which enhances the booking capacity to 7200 tickets per minute against 2000 tickets in the old system.
The BlackBerry version of the app is 4.6MB. After downloading the app, the app asks you to enter your username and TPIN, following which you can search train and book tickets.
Overall this looks like quite a helpful app. Now with the coming of these app let’s hope it becomes simpler and easier to book train tickets.
