PhonePe, a Flipkart-owned digital payments platform will now offer an IRCTC micro-app on its platform. The company has partnered with Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) to carry forward with this process.
This development has come three months after PhonePe struck a partnership with IRCTC to facilitate digital payments on the IRCTC Rail connect Android app.
With this, the micro-app will now allow users to book their train tickets directly through the PhonePe App.
“We are continuously evolving and innovating towards building a hassle-free ecosystem for our 100 million users and the association with IRCTC is another step in that direction. Our aim is to create a unified login and payments experience across all important consumer use cases especially in the space of travel” said Rituraj Rautela, Head of In-app Platform, PhonePe.
The digital payment firm recently crossed a milestone of 1 billion transactions on its mobile app and since then has been aggressively ramping up its micro-app strategy, enabling users to avail services from various Internet firms within its own app.
Besides IRCTC, the company now offers micro-apps for companies like redBus, Goibibo, Ola, Faasos, Delhi & Mumbai Metro, OYO, Treebo, AbhiBus, Zefo, Coolwinks, and Flipkart group company Myntra.
