How to check your PNR status

In terms of transportation, trains are the most common mode. Of course, there are some better options, but most people can't afford it. Trains are considered to be cheap and efficient means of transportation.

Check your PNR status

If you plan to travel by train, we recommend that you pay close attention to your PNR status. After some confirmed tickets are cancelled, the status may change.

You need to check your status repeatedly before important days, especially if your ticket status is still "Wait" or "RAC". In most cases, the "RAC" status changes to "confirmed" in a short period of time, but the "waiting" status may take longer to change. Sometimes the ticket is not confirmed at all.


Although you can go to the official website of the railway to check the status, but know that the process is very slow. Another problem is that if you book your ticket through the official website instead of a third-party website, you can only view the status.

Therefore, finding a convenient alternative would be better. There are many third party websites that can help you check the status of your ticket. All you have to do is provide your PNR number. Your status will be displayed in a minute or two.

What is the PNR status?

Most residents are familiar with PNR. But there may be some passengers who may not be familiar with the term. This may be a foreigner who may be on tour. So if you are a foreigner, we can help you understand the word better.

If you don't know, the word PNR is an abbreviation for "passenger name record." Primarily, this number is stored along with other information in the railway database, such as age, name, and number of passengers to travel.

Under the condition of a layman, once you have booked your ticket, you will be assigned a 10-digit number, which will be stored in the database immediately. It will also contain some additional information about you. This status can vary depending on the number of passengers confirmed. Therefore, it is important to check the status multiple times to ensure that your seat has been confirmed.

This number will contain a lot of detailed information about you, such as your train name, travel time, date, gender, etc. However, your privacy will not be compromised. Even if you use certain third-party apps or websites, your personal information will not be compromised. Even if someone can access your PNR number, they can only check your status, not anything else. Your important details, such as your name and address, will not be displayed.

In addition to the status of your ticket, we will not share any other content, including your gender, age or travel destination.

In short, if you are traveling by train, we recommend that you use a good third-party website to check the status of your ticket. It would be better if you only use sites with high ratings.
