Now use your phone as train ticket

Now showing your ticket on your internet enabled phone/ smartphone along with a valid ID is allowed for train travel.

By introducing Virtual Reservation Message (VRM) Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has taken a big step toward ridding train travelers of the hassles of carrying a print out of the Electronic Reservation Slip (ERS) while traveling by train.

As opposed to the earlier requirement of a print out of the electronic reservation slip or ERS, train travelers now can also show the ERS on their internet enabled devices like tablets, smartphones, mobile phones and even laptops.

A VRM will only be considered valid when it accompanies a valid identity card issued by a government body and the passenger’s details match with the reservation chart.

Currently, passengers who don’t have a physical ticket have to pay a fine of Rs 50.
