Reliance Jio has now introduced a dedicated JioRail app for JioPhone and JioPhone 2 feature phone users in India. The JioRail app is powered by IRCTC and it allows users to book and cancel tickets by using debit cards, credit cards and e-wallets, check PNR status, train information, timings, routes, seat availability and several other services. “In its continued effort towards building a Digitally empowered India, Jio is redefining convenience for its users yet again,” said the Mukesh Ambani-owned telco in a press statement. The JioRail app can be downloaded for free via Jio App Store. This move from Jio comes after the introduction of two long-validity plans for JioPhone users.
Jio announced the JioRail app in collaboration with IRCTC and it allows users to make Tatkal booking for any last minute travel plans. Firstly, to book the tickets, users will have to sign in with their IRCTC account. If a user does not have an IRCTC account, the app allows them to create one without hassle. Moreover, with JioRail app, users can check the PNR status for the tickets booked and it will soon provide IRCTC’s newly launched services like PNR status change alerts, locate train and food ordering in future.
Launching the app for JioPhone and JioPhone 2, the company stated “Train ticket booking has been made quite simple on the JioRail app. With this unique service, India’s consumers can avoid standing in long queues or pay agent fees to book tickets and instead enjoy an enhanced digital life experience.”
