Google is providing a free service to check the Train PNR status through SMS.  Google claims that the SMS will be charged at a local SMS rate.  To know your ticket’s current status along with all other journey related details, send the 10-digit PNR to mobile number 97733 00000.  No need to prefix 0 or +91.

If you have Internet, you can always check the PNR status from official Indian Railway’s website at

Another way of getting the status is sending SMS to 139 with the text PNR followed by 10-digit PNR number.  For example:  PNR1234567890
