We have already know about mobile ticketing for weekend entertainment. Everybody is aware of the efficiency of our South Western Railways staff and the fight to get a platform ticket when you bid adieu to your loved ones.
Some Good News. Airtel and BSNL Cellone mobile users in Bangalore can purchase their platform ticket by sending an SMS to 64629 [Airtel] or 3939 [BSNL] with content “PFT“. The cost of the ticket is Rs 4 billed to your Mobile. After you send the SMS you will receive a confirmation code which you have to key into an vending machine at the station and the physical ticket will be dispensed to you.
However, Spice, Reliance, Hutch and Tata Indicom Mobile users have to still go and stand in the Queue to get their platform ticket.
