PNRstatuses.in today announced the release of its new, multi-record passenger name record (PNR) search tool. Users obtain up to five different records, simultaneously, with the system’s single-click search feature—a feature offered nowhere else.
Originally developed for air travel, 10-digit PNRs are also used for tracking passenger airport transfers, car rentals, hotel reservations and railway bookings, which are commonplace for Indian travelers. PNR records contain transaction data, such as passenger names, trip origin and destination and ticket status.
Demand for PNR Status
Regarded as the “lifeline of the nation,” India’s railway network is one of the largest in the world, comprising 17 railway zones and approximately 115,000 km (71,000 mi) of track. It is the largest rail network in Asia and the world’s second largest network under one management, known as the Ministry of Railways. Routes are extensive (linking between 7,500 and 8,000 stations) and include stops in all major cities and tourist destinations.
“[Rail travel] is often the cheapest and most efficient way of traveling long distances in India,” says PNRstatuses.in site founder Rajat Kapoor. From budget backpackers to the business elite, more than 26 million passengers travel Indian Railways each day, making the new PNRstatuses.in multi-record tool very useful.
Multi-Record PNR Checks
PNRstatuses.in is accessible on PCs and mobile devices. With a single click, users can obtain up to five (5) different PNR records at the same time—a function that currently is not possible on the Ministry’s official site. Mobile users can also access ticket information via SMS text.
