If you travel via trains a lot, checking the PNR status is one of the most crucial ways to stay updated about the train’s status, both before and after boarding the train. Until now, the quickest solution was to head over to IRCTC’s website or a few other sites and put in the PNR number to get the status. This process, however, is dependent on mobile data and at many locations, the network connectivity might not be great. Hence, there’s now a solution available via WhatsApp. Also Read - Best TWS earbuds under Rs 2,000 in September: Realme Buds Q2, boAt Airdopes 281 Pro, and more
Railofy has launched a new service on WhatsApp that allows customers to check the status of a train by simply sending a message. The new service requires the traveler to send the PNR number from the ticket to +91 98811 93322 on WhatsApp. Once the user sends the PNR number, the service will automatically send all the updates to your number with all details.

“As a train passenger there are so many details one needs to take care of. Passengers have to log onto multiple apps and websites to complete a single journey, unlike a flight experience. We are streamlining this entire experience on a single platform with this new feature. We hope this will add more predictability and convenience to the overall experience of train passengers across India,” says Railofy.
