How does the UTS app work?
This application can be downloaded to Google Play Store or Apple Play Store. The name of the app is UTS on Mobile. You have to register with your number. Boarding and Destination Station is to book tickets. Payment can be done with debit, credit and net banking.
Now trains will get 'service' like planes, training to IRCTC employees
However, one thing needs to be noticed that if you are not inside the train and in the station premises then tickets can be booked with the help of this app. If you have booked an online ticket, hardcopy will not be needed.
