Register For IRCTC SMS Alert Service For Train Enquiry

Filed under: SMS Services — Tags: , , — Kabir @ 8:37 pm

Indian railways are the lifeline of transportation in India. At the same time, it is not an uncommon fact that trains are often delayed or running late. But what do we expect when lakhs of people travel in trains everyday. There are times when trains get delayed by as much as 6-7 hours. There are also times when our ticket is not confirmed and we need to check online again and again, which can become quite irritating some times.

So, for very problem there is a solution. Certain web developers have come up with a unique set of SMS services which would automatically check train timings online and notify you the changes via SMS, if any. Moreover, the SMS would also keep a check on the status of your ticket (PNR status, in case of an unconfirmed ticket), as soon as it gets confirmed, a notification will be sent to you via SMS.

The web service works on the simple concept of submitting your PNR number and your phone number. The phone number acts as the identity of the user himself. The changes in the PNR status would be directly sent to the phone number corresponding to that PNR number. Thus, using this website keeps you updated with your PNR status as well as your train timings.

In case you want to unsubscribe from myPNRstatus.com, all you need to do is SMS “MYPNR BLOCK” to 9220092200. Using the web service is free of cost, you don’t need to give your credit card details anywhere on the website. The website makes money through advertisements only. So you must be thinking, how safe is giving your phone number to such websites .But that’s not the case, you don’t need to worry about your phone number being leaked to other spam sending sources (They have a decent privacy policy).

The homepage of the web site looks like this:
