JioPhone users would now be able to book/cancel railway tickets through the JioRail application. The JioRail app should be available for download from the JioApps repository.
For starters, the JioRail app would let you also obtain Railway-related information such as PNR status, train timings, and details regarding origination/cancellation of trains at source, along with being able to book/cancel railway tickets at any given point in time. In addition to these, you should also be able to check out tatkal ticket booking as well as finding out availability in various trains.
To use the JioRail app, you should remember to possess an IRCTC account; you could make payments through debit-card linkage, e-wallet unified payment interfaces (UPI). As of now, the JioRail app is reportedly available for both JioPhone 2 as well as the relatively old JioPhone users; it is not known if the app would make its way to Google Android as well as Apple iOS platforms.
At this juncture, the JioRail app could also get more enhancements in the future considering the fact that the Mukesh Ambani-led telco is known to announce updates to its services in fixed iterations (and durations). Here, do check out JioRail, and share thoughts/insights on the experience.
In other Jio-related developments, the telco could deploy 5G networks across the state of Gujarat at the earliest, considering the fact that Mukesh Ambani, at the recent Vibrant Gujarat summit, reiterated commitment to develop and deploy the next-gen networking standards within the state.
“Jio’s network is fully 5G ready; which means Gujarat will continue to remain on the forefront of digital connectivity for years to come,” said Ambani at the summit.
“Jio is committed to create a fully Digital Gujarat and make Gujarat the best Digitally Connected State in India,” he added.
“And on the back of this world-class and most affordable digital connectivity, we can make our beloved Gujarat the numero-uno in building Smart Villages – yes, not only Smart Cities, but also digitally empowered Smart Villages.”
