PNR (Passenger Name Record) is unique code assigned to each and every ticket which is been booked through IRCTC or via normal Indian Railways ticket booking window. It is a 10 digit numerical code written at the top left hand side of ticket. One can find passenger’s name, journey destinations, gender, train number, journey class, berth preference, age, etc. This record is maintained by CRS (Central Reservation System) database.
