UTS App Review – IRCTC has launched a mobile application named ‘UTS’. You will easily find the UTS App in the app store of your phone. This is one of the best moves taken by Indian Railways.
UTS App Review
This is an app where you can book any unreserved ticket like that of a passenger train or a local train that works in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai or any other city. You can go with the paperless ticket where you just need to show the app in case Ticket Collector asks you for the ticket.
So, there is no need of wasting paper and waiting in long queues.
How to pay on UTS App?
Once you register, you have various options to pay for the ticket. You can pay by MobiKwik, PayTM, Credit Card or Internet Banking. There is another option of RWallet as well. All you need to do is recharge your RWallet with a certain balance and keep using it for booking tickets. You can even pay the amount on the ticket counter but that makes senseless to keep this app.
So, I recommend using RWallet which is more convenient.
Where can I book?
You need to be at a radius of 2 km from any station, and at least 50 meters away from the Railway tracks to book the ticket. This app tracks your location using GPS. Hence, you cannot book a ticket from any random station where you are not even present.
Can I do my reservation for express trains and long journey trains?
Yes. But only unreserved general coach tickets can be booked on the UTS app.
Do I need to provide my details for using this app?
Yes, it certainly asks for your identity proof. Consequently, it requires any one of these – PAN Card, Aadhar Card, Voter ID, Driving License, Passport, Student ID, Bank Passbook, Credit Card with a laminated photo.
Does it need continuous internet?
No. You only need the internet while booking a ticket. Once you are done, you will be automatically logged out and you can freely switch off your internet and GPS. Your ticket will be displayed on the home screen.
I hope this UTS App Review helps. You can shoot your question in case you have any doubt.
Also, I have written a Pravas BEST App Review for all the Mumbaikers there! You can check it out. Cheers!
