How can I buy this ticket?

Railway’s IT arm Center for Railway Information System has launched a mobile app called Unreserved Ticketing System (UTS) several years back. In this you can load money digitally.

Tickets can also be bought at the station or train with this?

If you want to deduct general ticket from UTS app, then keep one thing in mind. With this app you cannot deduct ticket at railway station or train. For this, the Railways has made some special technical provisions. This is so that you do not cut the ticket after seeing the ticket checker. To get tickets from this app, it is mandatory for you to be at least 10 meters away from the railway station premises and railway line.Also Read:LIC- Deposit only Rs 130 in this scheme, you will get full ₹ 27 lakh on maturity

Do I have to show any documents or sync with the app to buy tickets?

After downloading this app on the mobile phone, you will have to sync it with documents like Aadhar number, PAN number or driving license. This is so that you can prove your authenticity during questioning to the ticket checking staff. Since the transfer of tickets is prohibited in the Railways, you will have to prove that you have booked the ticket for yourself. As soon as you deduct the ticket from this app, money will be deducted from your wallet.

This facility was snatched away during the Corona period. After this, when has the facility started?

You have said correctly. Last year, when the train operations came to a halt due to the lockdown, tickets were also stopped on UTS. After that special trains started running in a phased manner, even then general tickets were not available on it. At that time, the Railways had said that it is necessary to make seat reservation in the general compartment of the special train as well. Therefore, tickets are not being generated from UTS. This year, when unreserved trains started running in different parts of the country, tickets started getting on it from the second fortnight of February.Also Read:ITR update: If you have accidentally deducted more interest or late fee while filing your return, the Income Tax Department will refund your money.
