Top 5 IRCTC Android Apps To Track PNR, Book Tickets And More

Indian Railway online ticket booking is mainly done through irctc website. But there are several apps available on the Google Play Store using which you can book a ticket on the go. Here are the best 5 Android Apps you can use to book an online ticket.

This is the official app from IRCTC. Once you log into the app using your details, you can start using the app. Using this app, you can book an online ticket, track PNR status, check different trains and their timetable, fare inquiry, etc. You can also check running status of a train.

2] Super Tatkal

Super Tatkal is by far the best app I’ve used personally to book an online Tatkal ticket. You have to fill the form prior to booking a ticket. The moment Tatkal tickets become available, launch the app and it will fill your form and also click on the “Submit” button and take you to the next page and again fill the remaining stuff until you get to the payment process. From there onwards you have to take over. This saves a lot of time which is vital in this case.

 

It lets you do more than just book a Tatkal ticket. It lets you check PNR status, search trains, check the train schedule, alert you about upcoming journey etc.

Don’t let the name create any opinion in your mind. This is not an official app from IRCTC and can do way lot more than just check PNR status. It allows you to check trains between stations, train schedules, check the current availability of seats, live train status, book/cancel tickets. Furthermore, it also shows you the seat map which is kinda new feature. It shows you live station status as to which train has arrived on that station and which are coming.

 

You can also check fare of different trains, shows you trains that are diverted or rescheduled or even canceled. This app shows you the live data which is very helpful. Even though this app offers a ton of features, it occupies very less storage space and is very light weight.

4] Where Is My Train? Indian Rail

This app does all the basic task related to online railway ticket booking. User Interface is simple and extremely easy to use. In fact, even elders can use this app without any issues, it is that simple. This app lets you find trains running between your stations and also lets you check live station status. Apart from checking current PNR status it also lets you book tickets. The best thing is that it automatically shows all the class that is available on the train along with the fare. So you don’t have to check separately check fare of each class which consumes a lot of time.

 

Just for the simplicity of this app and its great user interface and the amount of data it is able to show elegantly, makes this my most favorite app in this list.

5] m-Indicator- Indian Rail

Top 5 IRCTC Android Apps To Track PNR, Book Tickets And More

Started as just an app that showed the schedule’s of Mumbai Local trains, m-Indicator has come a long way. It has later added timetables of express trains that came or go out of Mumbai. It also later added Pune city train schedules.

 

It has now integrated Indian Rail App and has unlocked many features. Just from this app, you can now search for trains you want and check seat availability. When you click on “book” which is a very small tab at the top right-hand side of the app, it takes you to the IRCTC website and you can book an online ticket from there. Therefore, it doesn’t directly let you book a ticket. But the fact that it also shows local train timings along with platform numbers of bot Mumbai and Pune, makes it a must have app for the residents and also those who travel to these cities frequently.

So, in my opinion, these are the best Android apps that you can use to do numerous tasks concerned with IRCTC. If you think there are other apps that are much better than these or have any other suggestion, then please leave a comment.
