If you plan to download the Jio Rail app, you might be bumped to know that the Jio Rail App download option is only available for Jio Phone users. Nevertheless, here’s what the Jio Rail App features are, how to book tickets on it and where can users download the Jio Rail app.

When did Jio launch the Jio Rail App?

There’s no confirmed official launch date of the Jio Rail app but reports suggest that the Rail app by Jio was most likely launched in the year 2019. The railway ticket booking app by Jio is built in partnership with IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering & Tourism Corporation).

Users can easily book their train tickets on the app and avoid standing in long queues, paying agents fees or visiting the IRCTC website.

But the major drawback is that the app is only available for Reliance Jio Phone users. This means even if you have a Jio SIM card but not a Jio Phone (feature phone by Jio) you still cannot use or download the Jio Rail app as of yet.

Jio Rail App: A Smooth Ride for Some, Leaving Others at the Station

While the Jio Rail app looks promising for booking railway tickets on the go, it's an “available to some, not for many” sort of a show, at least as of now. Currently, there are 5 top players in the feature phones market namely Nokia, Itel, Lava, Samsung, and Jio (in order of high market share to low).

Jio Phone market share

While Jio is among the top 5 feature phone brands in India, it isn’t quite there yet. Hence, the Jio Rail app being available to download for only Jio Phone users means it is only limited to a few users in India as compared to the masses.

Which ultimately made us tag the Jio Rail App as a smooth ride for some, leaving others at the station.

So this was all about sharing the Jio Rail App for ticket booking. While we are at it, do check out our ticket booking offers on Paytm, Adani One, Amazon, Cred all in one place.
