New Delhi: Indian Railway in the move to decongest ticket booking counters and ensure smooth compliance of social distancing norms, facility to book unreserved tickets through UTS ON MOBILE app is being reactivated.

Indian Railways decides to reactivate the facility of UTS on mobile app, in zones where unreserved train services are reintroduced, to avoid rush at counters and ensure social distancing.
