Indian Railway PNR Status Enquiry

Indian Railway PNR Status Enquiry - IRCTC.co.in, online railway ticket booking.

One of the recent changes that IRCTC has bought in Railway online reservation is that - you don't need to have an photo ID card at the time of reservation, so at the time of travel if any one of the passenger in the ticket has a photo id then that is enough. This will facilitate many people to book the train tickets with ease.

Also now you can cancel the train ticket up to 2 hours before the departure of the train. I have also noticed that the chart is prepared message on your PNR status is coming 2 hours before the train departure time.

About Indian Railways Online Reservation - IRCTC
I just thought of sharing and pointing to some useful resources. Many Indians use railways very frequently and this is best and cheap method of travel for most Indians - both comfort and monetary wise.

IRCTC.co.in is the way for you to book train tickets online, cancel booked tickets, get your ticket status through PNR Status enquiry, see the availability of train tickets, check the train ticket prices and also see the route of your rail journey.

With some new enhancements to the irctc.co.in site you can also book the tatkal tickets online, cancel part of the tickets - everything online through internet. With so much of demand for rail tickets during this fesitval season of Diwali standing in the queue for long hours is no more required - you can just book everything online and the performance of the site irctc.co.in is fairly good

The only problem with the railways is to be able to get the tickets that are confirmed, in most of the cases you end with an wait listed railway ticket or a ticket with Reservations Against Cancellation - RAC as they call. You need to plan your travel well in advance to get a confirmed ticket - on any route managed by Indian Railways.

But those days of waiting in long queues in railway reservation counter is not more the only option as the Indian railways has innovated itself with the technology and has provided lots of online means for checking the PNR status enquiry or railway reservation inquiry.

IRCTC.co.in (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Limited) is one such site where you can plan your travel, this site not only lets you book normal tickets on any route on any calls but you can also cancel the tickets online. There are two ways of tickets that you can book through IRCTC.co.in - ITicket or ETicket - ITicket is a electronic form of physical ticket i.e., you can book it online, but the ticket will be physically delivered to you via courier. ETicket is a paper ticket where you need to have a valid photo ID in order to proceed for the railway booking.

The best part of the ETicket is that you can even cancel the ticket online - for ITicket, you need to go to the railway reservation ticket. Wait listed tickets can also be booked in ETicket. Recently, Indian Railways has also incorporated booking of Tatkal Tickets online - i,e., Tatkal ETickets - so this has helped so many people to save lots of time and also make quick decisions about their plans, or about canceling.

This site has payment gateway integration with most of the available bank, credit cars, online banking providers, debt cards. You can make these payment online and they all are secured - when you cancel the ETicket, your money will be credited back to the same account.

These are some of the features available on irctc.co.in - Online Train Passenger Reservation System. Once booked you can get the railway reservation status by checking the online railway PNR status enquiry. You can also use the telephone to check the railway reservation enquiry by knowing the PNR of your railway ticket. Online you will get the latest updated status of your PNR Number.
