To begin with, one must know what is a PNR number and how this unique number is connected with Indian Railways computer reservation system (IR-CRS).

 

 

PNR stands for Passenger Name Record. It is a record in the database of Indian Railways computer reservation system (IR-CRS) against which journey details for a passenger are saved. So, when you book a confirmed ticket, all your details (Name, age, gender) are stored in a relational database of the centralized reservation system. These details are associated with a unique ten digit number, and this reference number is called the PNR number. PNR number is printed at the top left corner of the printed tickets.

For the unconfirmed tickets, booking status of such waitlist (W/L) ticket often changes when there is any availability of reserved seats due to cancellation. This new current reservation status is known as PNR status. It tells the current status of your ticket. You can check the PNR status via online websites such as www.trainspnrstatus.com, www.indianrail.gov.in, and www.irctc.co.in.
