The number of people travelling daily by train is highest in India. Out of these, many people travel on regular basis. They have an option to buy monthly pass, which does offer some discount if you compare it to daily tickets. Overall, it proves out good alternative to pricey taxis and autos. Moreover, you can reach your office in time!
A lot of travelers are not regular, you can call them as seasonal travelers. These include people who go out on business trips, the state sports team, for attending special function or occasion and tourists. So, most of the time, while travelling you might have noticed that it takes more time to travel as compared to normal local journey. For instance, the Duronto express takes about 20 hours to reach Delhi from Pune, so it is necessary to make sure that your tickets are confirmed. For this reason, you have to check PNR number that is assigned to your ticket. Just imagine, you are planning for a trip and your tickets are not confirmed? You will have to share your seat with some stranger in case if it is RAC. If not confirmed, all you can do is just cancel off the ticket and try some other day. Or you can book in Tatkal which will be little expensive, but you can travel with ease.
PNR is also known as Passenger name record.
According to Wikipedia, in the airline and travel industries, a passenger name record (PNR) is a record in the database of a computer reservation system (CRS) that contains the itinerary for a passenger, or a group of passengers travelling together.
There are five different parts associated with the PNR:
Recently, the airlines and railway department has made it mandatory to include many other things in the tickets, linked to PNR. This is just to provide more security to the travelling passengers and easier to check out.
