With the help of this app, UTS tickets can be booked from 20 metres away from the railway station premises. The app also gives a 5 per cent bonus on every recharge. Moreover, the R- wallet can be recharged either at any of the UTS counter or through recharge option available in the UTS app. However, it should be noted that no advance ticket booking is allowed since the UTS app is only for unreserved tickets.
The UTS mobile application has been developed by the Centre for Railway Information System (CRIS). Passengers or users who wish to use this app can download it from Google Play Store or Windows store for free of cost. The UTS app is being increasingly launched for various divisions of Indian Railways to facilitate ticket buying for local travel.
