IRCTC PNR Status with passenger name

Indian Railways user are querying about: how to get IRCTC PNR status with passenger name.

Those who have a railway ticket may check PNR status  by going to train enquiry and select PNR status enquiry to find the railway reservation status.

One thing you would have noticed is that when you check the railway status - the form in which you enter your PNR number, which has 10 digits, doesn't ask you to enter a passenger name even once. Hence there is a confusion about whether one can check the PNR status with name or not.

Upon checking your PNR status, you'll find that the railway enquiry website (www.indianrail.gov.in) would return coach number and seat number, if your reservation is confirmed; or will list out the waiting list or RAC status in case reservation is not confirmed. But there is no passenger name displayed there in either case.

Once place where the PNR status and passenger name appear together is when you go to login to IRCTC next generation website for booking online tickets. IRCTC send message to confirm booking on users registered mobile. This message has both PNR status and passenger name listed. Here also only the name of first passenger booked on a ticket is listed. Names of other passengers is not shown.

Thus it is clear now that to get IRCTC PNR status with the name of passenger one has to rely on message send by IRCTC online ticket booking site. The Indian Railways site doesn't yet display the name of reserved passengers with PNR status online.

Why even hackers don't hack IRCTC ?

The irctc.co.in site - the official railway ticket booking site of India belonging to Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has never been hacked, and there is very less chance of anyone attempting to do so. This might sound strange to you.

In a country like India where due to abundance of talented IT and programming talent, the claim that no one will even attempt to hack IRCTC doesn't seem right.

Especially when there are great benefits of doing so.



Of course new programmers do get excited and try and hack a website. After all what it requires is some good and intelligent programming. Although there are no known hacks, some well known hackers might be considering making an autobot that will just require to fill in captcha at the time of ticket booking.
