Simple and Easy Ways to Check Indian Railways PNR Status

You can check Indian Railways PNR status on your mobile through simple and easy ways. In the Indian railway passenger reservation system, waiting list tickets and reservation under confirmation (RAC) tickets are very common and this can result in much confusion among passengers. They may be rushing about in the last minutes to know their PNR status. When the system was mainly manual it was all the more troublesome for the passengers. But now with the advancement of technology and quantum leap in communication facilities, the relevant information can be gathered through mobile messaging and calls.

The first simple and easy way is to check your PNR status is by using the 3-digit SMS code. The three digit code is 139. This is a service arranged by the IRCTC and the negative aspect is that if you want to use the 3-digit code, you will have to pay premium SMS charges of your mobile service provider. Apart from the payment part, it is a very convenient mode. This is how you can send the message: Type your SMS text as PNR followed by your PNR number without any space and send it to the number 139. That is, you have to enter PNR and send it to the number code 139. You can also use the other short code of Indian Railways - 5676747. That is: PNR your PNR number> to 5676747. A second easy way is to check PNR on your mobile by sending SMS using the 10 digit mobile number. This is a service provided by Google and you can check your PNR status by sending your PNR number to 9773300000. This is better than the previous method because while you send your number by the code 139, your mobile service provider will charge you at the premium rate. At the same time in latter case, the service does not have such a defect.
