Airtel Money ties up with IRCTC to offer train ticket booking on mobile phones

Airtel Money, the mobile wallet from Bharti Airtel, has tied up with Indian Railways Catering And Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) to offer mobile based ticket reservations for over 185 million customers country wide.

Besides booking tickets via Airtel Money, customers using Airtel connections can search for stations, trains, availability, PNR enquiry, cancellation by dialing *400# to access a USSD system, without worrying about the kind of handset or about paying data or SMS charges. USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) technology will prompt users with interactive and guided menu options towards booking tickets.
