To provide ease to the customers, while making payment for online ticket booking on IRCTC’s website, IRCTC has recently added an eWallet service for the consumers and also announced the launch of SMS ticketing.

But considering the Android market share is higher than that of Windows and Blackberry, IRCTC should re-consider its mobile strategy.
