New Delhi: The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) have launched a new mobile website for train ticket reservations from your cell phone on Wednesday.

Passengers can now log on to http://www.irctc.co.in/mobile to book and cancel train tickets through mobile phone.

Reportedly, IRCTC will soon follow it up with mobile apps for all major platforms including Symbian, Android and iOS.

After the initial registration on the above given web link and the subsequent software download, users can get going with their rail ticket bookings.

Once the booking is done, users will receive their railway ticket booking details, like the PNR number, date of journey and train number etc.

After the ticket is done the users are prompted to not get a printout of the e-ticket, like they're asked to do otherwise. The mobile message received after the booking itself is equivalent to the printout of the e-ticket.
