The Utsonmobile has been developed by the Centre for RIS (Railway Information Systems) for Android and Windows platform, in order to reduce the need for printing unreserved tickets at ATVMs (Automatic Ticket Vending via Messaging Service) in stations.

The application is designed in such a way that it is user friendly interface with features like book ticket book, maintain their profile, manage frequently travel routes, etc. Rail commuters can now use a mobile app to get the tickets in the unreserved category as the Indian Railways bring its proposal for paperless ticketing. A senior Railway Ministry has said that we are launching a mobile based paperless unreserved ticketing application. The paperless ticketing system is also intended at saving time for passengers as it allows them to avoid inside layer up at the ticket window.
