Further, this new SMS feature will now make IRCTC train booking details more comprehensible and clear. Xiaomi has introduced this feature mostly due to the popularity of IRCTC messages in India.

Users familiar with IRCTC's booking process know that the confirmation message usually comes in the form of a standard text message which mentions various details like the PNR, train number, time of departure and destination in a plain fashion.
