Get Indian Railways Current PNR Status And Train Information On Your Mobile by SMS

PNR Status ServiceWorld's largest rail-network under a single management Indian Railways is now ready with its new mobile information system to further ease access to the existing railways inquiry system, the new all India railways information access number 139 allows passengers to access train information like PNR status, current train schedule, fare inquiry and accommodation availability anywhere, anytime through SMS on their mobile phones.

139 - Railway Information SMS Codes

Currently the service is available to Airtel, Vodafone, MTNL, Idea, Aircel, BPL and TATA customers only, surprisingly India's largest telecom service provider BSNL is not in the list of current supported providers but access from BSNL and Reliance network is coming soon, you can find the SMS codes you will need to access various information from the service at the end of the post, keep in mind this is a premium service and is charged at Rs. 3/- per SMS.

Indian Railways SMS Enquiry Codes :

To use simply SMS the information code with required information to 139, you don't need to remember these codes as you can SMS Rail to 139 and these codes will get sent to you but this will cost you an additional SMS.

  • For PNR Status Enquiry :
  • PNR [Your 10 Digit PNR Number]

  • Train Enquiry :
  • Train [Train Number] [Doj*ddmmyy] [Station Code]

  • For Seat Availability :
  • Train [Train Number] [Doj*"ddmmyy] [Station From STD Code] [Station To STD Code] [Class] [Class Type]

  • For Train Fair :

This will come in handy, I always wanted to have facility of checking current PNR status on phone, this will help a lot, altough govt. should have made SMS price to cost normal and not premium.


Thaks My friend...

Keep it up...

Nice Share

I'd rather like to have it this way:
1. we anyways have our cell ph. registered in our online account with Indian Railway.
2. I should get an updated SMS whenever there is a 'status change' of any kind from railway...

how @ that.. why should I need to enquire? Any new change, should be communicated to me actively rather than I checking for it and then getting surprised of any train delays etc....

That should be a good Idea! Hope Railways will implement something like this!

You can simply use to find your current PNR Status and delay if any to your train timing. This is a absolutely FREE service and is provided whenever you PNR changes or train is delayed.You just need to key in your PNR & Mobile Number once !!!

Good one to all travel. Now a days there is one feature online at portals i.e PNR Prediction of pnr status. Its helps in predicting the chances of your tickets getting confirmed. Good feature to use.
