In a statement on Wednesday, the ministry said that the app will also enable the issue and renewal of season and platform tickets, check and load R-wallet balance, and help maintain user profile management and booking history. 

The UTS on mobile application developed by the Centre for Railway Information System (CRIS) is available for both Android and Windows smartphones. Users can download this app from Google Play Store or Windows store free of cost.

"First the passenger will get registered by providing his/her mobile number, name, city, default booking train type, class, ticket type, number of passenger and frequently travelled routes. Upon successful registration, Railway Wallet (R-Wallet) will be created automatically with zero balance to the passenger. There will be no extra cost for creating R-Wallet," the statement said.
