NEW DELHI: With an eye on the growing usage of mobile applications, IRCTC has launched a new application to book tickets for BlackBerry smartphone users.



"The official IRCTC App can now be downloaded from BlackBerry Store on BlackBerry 10 smartphones and users can book train tickets using the app," said a senior IRCTC official.



The number of tickets booked through e-ticketing system on IRCTC website has gone up many times since capacity enhancement of the portal recently. It costs about Rs 100 crore to the Railway PSU for strengthening the ticketing site.



On an average 7,000 tickets are booked on the website per minute and about 5 lakh tickets are booked daily.



CRIS, the technical arm of railways, was involved in the upgrading of the IRCTC website.



With the IRCTC app on BlackBerry, one can plan journey with a tap of a finger. The official said the app is user friendly and easy to operate.



There are about 31 crore reserve tickets being booked in a year out of which 55% tickets are sold through windows. While 37 percent tickets are booked online, 8% are being booked by ticketing agents.
