Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has started a ticket booking facility through mobile phones. For this it has tied-up with NGPay, which is an application based payment system for mobile phones. It has also started a new mobile site for people who can’t download the application.
To download NGPay on your mobile, you need to SMS “KSRTC” to 56767. You will receive an SMS containing a link. Click on the link to download the application. Once downloaded, you will need to enter your details and you’re ready to go.
The added benefit of this is the fact that you can also book railway tickets, movie tickets, pay bills, and shop for products through your mobile. You will need to have a debit card or credit card to use NGPay.
You can also use the service to cancel booked tickets, and will receive a message confirming bookings.
On the first visit the site needs you to register. However, second time onwards you can simply log in and book tickets.
Both the services of KSRTC, through NGPay and through the website, are free, and there are no additional charges for the transactions.
