Travel website MakeMyTrip and IRCTC have come up with a very useful new service. MakeMyTrip has developed a system to fetch the PNR status from the IRCTC database. Now passengers can check the ticket confirmation status by sending a message on WhatsApp. As we all know, WhatsApp is most widely used messaging app on mobile phones. Therefore, now you don’t need to switch on your computer or IRCTC app to find out the PNR status.
To find PNR status through WhatsApp, follow these steps:
- Add the MakeMyTrip WhatsApp number 7349389104 in your phone’s contact list.
- Open WhatsApp and send a message to this number. Format of this message should be PNR <your-pnr-number>
- For example, if your PNR number is 123454321, you should send the message as PNR 123454321
- In reply, you will receive the PNR status from MakeMyTrip
Please know that because IRCTC servers may be very busy and MakeMyTrip has to connect to IRCTC database — the reply may take a little time to come. In general, you should get the PNR status in WhatsApp within one minute.
This service will certainly be highly appreciated by train travelers in India. Let’s know if you have any queries regarding this utility. Thanks for you connecting with TechWelkin!
