IRCTC launches Railway Ticket Booking App for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 devices

IRCTC has launched ticket booking apps exclusively for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 devices in collaboration with Microsoft.

IRCTC apps can be downloaded from Windows 8 Store or Windows Phone Store with free of cost.This app allows users to plan journeys, book tickets, checking PNR status, cancellation of tickets and more.



Railway Ticket Booking through app will be available throughout the day except for the period from 8am to 12 noon, when access to the service is blocked for agents and for mobile devices to reduce load on servers during Tatkal ticket booking window, and for maintenance from 11:30pm to 12:30 am.

To access this app users need to sign-up for IRCTC service and generate a TPIN to log in. This app is not just a wrapper to IRCTC's mobile website and follows Windows Phone's modern UI design.This app is strongly integrated with Windows Azure for a number of intermediary services.

"This app is ideal for the modern consumer who is always on the move."

  1. I guess tatkal ticket booking is not allowed through this app. Irctc should allow this for faster ticket booking.
