How to use UTS app to purchase Mumbai local train e-tickets without standing in a queue

Standing in queues during the rush hour at any Mumbai suburban railway stations can be frustrating for commuters. Being someone who travels from Dombivli, which also happens to be the most crowded railway station on Central Railway, I completely understand how annoying it is to stand in a queue to purchase a ticket, and sometimes miss a few trains due to that. In order to get rid of such situations, I recently came across an interesting mobile app called UTS that makes it easier to purchase Mumbai local train tickets without standing in a queue.

Not just Mumbai, the app can book suburban tickets between various routes across the country. For example, UTS also covers Chennai suburban stations, New Delhi to Palwal section and more. Here is how you can book tickets using UTS app and everything else you need to know about it. But first, you should know what UTS app is all about and how to get started with it:
What is UTS app?

Developed in-house by Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS), UTS is a free mobile app that allows users to book paperless journey/season/platform tickets for select railways stations. UTS app is available to download for Android, iOS and Windows Phone users. Suburban tickets can be booked and accessed within the app itself. So, passengers don’t need to travel with printed tickets. It also lets users book tickets and get a printed ticket later using EVM machines at the railway stations. More on that later.
