The checking of PNR is very easy. There are a number of ways with the help of which one can check PNR status. It shows the status of the ticket whether it is in waiting, confirmed or still with RAC. One can check the PNR status online also. For that ,one needs to have a computer connected to the Internet. One needs to visit the website of Indian Railways where there is an option provided for PNR checking.
One just needs to enter the PNR number there, and in some time, he is provided with all the information about the PNR such as the name of the traveler, age, sex, the status of the ticket, the berth number, seat number and name of the train with its number.
