Book IRCTC Train Ticket Using Google Pay (Tez) App and Pay using UPI Payment

Now you can Book your IRCTC Train tickets using your Google Pay/Tez App. Google typically surprises with new features often. The tech giant just updated one of its old apps – Tez, and renamed it to Google Pay; users of this app will be able to book tickets straight from the app. The service is currently available to Indians. So, now, Indians will have to launch the app and book their tickets right on the go. This support is feasible for Indians owing to the country’s rapid welcoming of digital payment systems and the acceptance of using Google’s Unified Payment Interface (UPI) by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) as a payment method.Train Crossing

Book train tickets with Google Pay if you’re in India

If you’re a citizen of India or living in the country, this is a better way to book for your train tickets. It is faster, flexible, and reliable. With this new booking method, you can reserve your space on a train from anywhere you are and not having to check-in to a rail station to do that.

This app is available for Android and iOS; so, irrespective of your device, you can download the Google Pay app and start booking your train tickets virtually, thanks to the collaboration of the Indian Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) and the global tech giant, Google. Interestingly, Indians will be able to search, book, and even cancel tickets directly from this app; everything happens virtually.

In one of the times we had Google Pay executives spoke about this support, Ambarish Kenghe, Director, Product Management, Google Pay, said, “The train ticket booking feature addresses an important need for Indian users, right within the app and is another step to making the lives of our users easier and more convenient with Google Pay.” It is effortless to book tickets with this app; if you’ve ever paid for a service via a mobile app, the process is almost the same.

However, before you can be able to use this service, you must have a registered IRCTC account. It doesn’t cost a dime to open this account. Also, it is possible to book for space four months earlier (in advance). Below is how you can book tickets with Google pay as an Indian or someone living in India.
