DAKC (Dhirubhai Ambani Knowledge City), Navi Mumbai, September 09, 2004

Reliance Infocomm, in association with Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Ltd (IRCTC), launched the much-awaited Railway Ticket Booking service through Reliance IndiaMobile(RIM) in New Delhi today. Honourable Railway Minister Shri Lalu Prasad Yadav inaugurated the service.

Mr. M.N. Chopra, Managing Director, IRCTC, who was present at the inauguration said, "With a view to extend access to a larger customer base, IRCTC sought to implement other means of providing access - those that would be more easily available to customers. With the mobile revolution in India, large numbers of potential customers, who may not have ready access to Internet now have access to mobile phones. IRCTC, therefore, developed a system, whereby mobile service operators could access IRCTC's rail reservation services."

Easy menu-driven navigation of the application on R World makes train ticket booking on RIM the most convenient option anywhere, anytime, bringing online reservations to millions of mobile phones, without the need to look for PCs or Internet connections. Customers can pick their travel destinations, class of travel, intermediary stops, without having to remember train numbers, station codes and reservation codes while booking their rail tickets on this R World application.

"We are proud to be associated with IRCTC in their maiden initiative which offers the most convenient way of booking the train tickets through mobile phones. This facility on R World provides access to millions of new users who have not registered with IRCTC, and allows them to make reservation through RIM. With a customer base of over 8 million users, Reliance Infocomm offers immense potential to this unique initiative from the IRCTC," says Mahesh Prasad, President Applications & Solutions Group, Reliance Infocomm.

R World offers the convenience of PC-like interactivity and easy navigation on mobile handsets, where all train routes and their corresponding train numbers can be accessed. It not only displays both availability and fare in real time, but also offers availability of seats for all 5 days around the desired date of travel. RIM subscribers can use credit cards to book the ticket.

"This service is currently available to RIM customers using colour handsets in New Delhi & NCR. It will progressively be made available even on the black & white handsets and subsequently activated in all other cities in keeping with the rollout plans of IRCTC," added Mr. Prasad.

Since the Java-enabled feature has download speeds of up to 144 kbps, R World applications are quick to download with no restrictions on text matter. The R World applications suite currently has over 100 applications ranging from interactive Guides such as TV programme guides and City Guides, Live News and TV news clips from channels like NDTV, CNBC, Aaj Tak and India TV to contests, Songs, Ring Tones, Cricket Information and women's world.
