Reliance Jio has launched the JioRail app for its Jio Phone and Jio Phone 2 users in India to let users book railway tickets without any hassle. The JioRail app will allow travellers to book and cancel tickets, check PNR status, get train information, availability of seats, timings and other related services with a small tap on their Jio feature phones. The app accepts debit cards, credit cards, and e-wallets for ticket booking and cancelations. The biggest feature of JioRail is its ability to even book Tatkal tickets.
