How To Check PNR Status

Want to check pnr status of your railway ticket? It's too easy to check that at , you may want to bookmark us for further easy PNR enquiries!

Let's Dive Deep Into PNR status

PNR stands for "Passenger Name Record" which is issued by Indian Railways (IRCTC) to every person who holds a reservation ticket. However, PNR number is not issued to each passenger; It is issued to every ticket. Now what does that mean? Well, Suppose you have two tickets (Reserevation tickets of IRCTC not local ones) each with 5 passengers. In that case you will be issued two PNR numbers for each ticket and not 10 PNR numbers for each passenger. When you use our tool to Check PNR Status , you get informartion about current status of all the passengers listed in the ticket.

Locating Your PNR Number

"Where can I find my PNR number?" If that's the questions you are asking yourself then you must know that, it is pretty easy to find your PNR number no matter wether you booked your Railway reservation ticket online from IRCTC Website or offline from a Railway booking counter (generally at Railway stations).

PNR number of every Railway ticket is generally located at the top section of the tickets booked offline, and for tickets booked online you get a SMS along with your PNR number at the time of ticket booking. Below is a screenshot of a booking history from My IRCTC account which can give us our PNR number information and as it can be seen.
