Those days have gone when we were only relying on SMS services to get status of PNR. It was difficult to check the live status of the train or check your PNR number through old services. To get the live status of PNR, the passengers either used to call the Railway Inquiry number 139 or had to check their PNR number by logging on IRCTC’s official website irctc.co.in. or some other portals. Undoubtedly this process also took considerable time.
Now to save time and to make the whole process easier for the passengers, Indian Railways has recently sealed a partnership with online travel agency website make my trip. According to some media report, passengers will now get information about the live status of the train, PNR status etc on their smartphones with one click.
So, let’s understand the process of how to check PNR status using WhatsApp on your smartphone?
