Cleartrip update lets users in India book train tickets directly from their phones

Cleartrip has launched an update to its Windows Phone app that allows users in India the ability to book train tickets. The added functionality is on top of the flight and hotel booking services already being offered. Along with the ability to book train tickets, users can also view schedules for up to two weeks, as well as the running status of the train, all from within the app.

Cleartrip is the only online booking vendor authorised by IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation) to sell train tickets via its app. Here's a list of all the features on offer with version 2015.130.1151.1006:

  • All major trains: Book tickets aboard all major trains in India, including Rajdhani, Shatabdi, Jan Shatabdi, Garib Rath and Duronto Express.
  • All classes: Search for seat availability across all classes, including Sleeper (SL), Third AC (3 AC), Second AC (2 AC), First AC (1 AC) and Chair Car (CC).
  • No extra fee: Cleartrip's train fares are the same as those offered by IRCTC.
  • All options: Search for all available trains between two stations as well as trains available from nearby stations.
  • Train schedules: Get up-to-date train schedules from within the app.
  • Trains Calendar: Our most popular Trains feature on the website makes its debut on Windows Phone. Check the availability of all trains between any two stations, for the next 2 weeks, right from the app.
  • Live Train Status: Check the running status of any train, right from the Cleartrip app.

The app allows you to quickly check availability of trains between two stations, as well as the fare.


There's also the ability to check the status of the train, as well as ticket availability based on the class.


After rolling out a comprehensive update in December, it is great to see Cleartrip bringing even more features – which have traditioanlly been exclusive to its website – over to the Windows Phone app. Let us know what you think of the additions in the comments.

  • Great. Downloading
  • This is sticking with metro and still delivering functionality and beauty together ! I so hope that metro(now Morden) evolves yes... But going forward with legacy of its old principles... This "standard" line is so.... Not unique...which is WP ...
  • IRCTC app does that quite well! Then why this?
  • Flight and hotel booking is included too. I know the official railways client has hotel booking, but I've found that this service has better results.
  • Ok, will give it a try then
  • Will we able to book tkts between 8am to 12 pm via this app?
  • No that's an IRCTc rule.
  • some thatkal seats are reserved for apps ,so no need to hurry at 8am. You will have reserved app seats that book after 12. When I want to travel I will try to book from web. If its fail,I will book through app.
  • Your phone has light bleeding.........might wanna take it to the service. lol
  • Most people in India are too poor to afford a cell phone. I don't know why they keep focusing there! Meanwhile we need Verizon to do better here in the U.S.
  • What a typical first world comment.
  • What do u mean by this... There is a population here like no country has... If not here then where should you expect a more serious service .... Even Microsoft should start services in India prior to anywhere...
  • You must be butthurt by the Chase thing.
  • Well, that escalated quickly. :D
  • Do you have any facts..? I have some --
    India has the maximum number of millionaires and billionaires in the world!!
    And last year smartphones were sold the most in India only!!
    "Don't know why they keep on focusing there" Well it's the Indian devs only who are doing the hardwork!!
    India ranks 3rd in the world in spending of disposable income!!
    And yes think twice before calling someone poor or inferior..!!
  • :)))))))
  • just so that you know... world's second largest cellphone base is India..
  • Who the hell do you think you are mister???
  • He's just another ignorant fool

  • Yea exactly..That's why your 1st world country prez comes to the 3rd to ask for help as the Europeans,,Japanese and the Aussies have shut their doors on you..!!
    And yes did I mention the Russians or the Chinese..?
  • And you think that promoting it makes you look cool..? Well you are not so good either "I love riots" and then blame and curse those participating in it..!! Your stupid comment stoked the fire more and that ain't a 1st world country thing my friend....

  • Dont feed Sir Troll, guys. :D
  • Lol, this uncivilised guy sounds like a typical American teenager, are you? LOL.
  • You don't know why they are focusing there? Dude Are you in touch with the reality? Or do you think "U.S.A" is just an another planet you "stereotypehole" .. Saying India is poor is like saying all Americans are stupid.
    According to your logic:
    Some Americans may be stupid but that doesn't make an entire country stupid , similarly some ppl may be poor there doesn't mean all are poor.. Please educate yourself dude as they say ignorance can be educated
    And pls wise up..
  • Exactly. If u asume 60cr people is poor then anther 60cr which is double compared to your total population is good enough to kick their mouth.
