Movie Tickets by Mobile Phone

Singapore-based mobile-commerce company Tagit has launched a mobile ticketing service in India and expects to do the same here soon.

Tagit has partnered with PVR, the largest multiplex cinema chain there, and Airtel, a telecommunications service operator in India with more than 25 million subscribers.

Mr Navtej Singh, Tagit's chief executive officer, said the company sold more than 2,000 tickets within the first few days of its launch last month.

Users can access the mobile ticketing service by downloading Tagit's Java application onto their mobile handsets for free.

The application not only allows users to choose a movie and the date and time of the show but also the seats from a layout of the cinema seating plan.
