IRCTC PNR Status Check

PNR

The Indian Railways passenger name record, also known as PNR, is a number that gives a variety of travel information to ticket-holders. The PNR status includes information such as the booking status - whether the ticket has been confirmed, it is on waiting list (WL) or it is under reservation against cancellation (RAC) - apart from giving basic information on arrival and departure time of trains. The PNR status has details of the coach and seat number and the fare paid by the passenger, among other details. NDTV search will help you find out the accurate PNR status of your train journey with the Indian Railways.

How To Check PNR Status?

Checking your PNR status is easy. All you need to do is to enter your PNR number on the search bar above. It will then show you the PNR status of your ticket. Although you will see the PNR number on the top-left corner of the train ticket, the PNR number on the e-ticket appears in a different place - it will be printed on the top half of the page.

How PNR Works?

The Centre of Railway Information Systems or CRIS runs a database where all information about passengers are fed and stored. The system creates a 10-digit PNR status number every time a person buys an Indian Railways ticket on the IRCTC website, private travel websites or at ticket counters. IRCTC refers to Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation.
