The generation of PNR for different types of trains For every train of the Indian Railways, the PNR number gets generated from regular passenger trains to daily express trains. Every train is classed according to its average speed, halts, and various other factors.
• Express trains – The express or super-fast express trains operate all across India’s longer distance routes. Passengers can reserve their tickets here. So, they will come across an exclusive PNR number that is generated for all tickets that help in recognizing the traveler.
• Passenger trains – Commonly, passenger trains run between short-distanced cities, and there are slow and fast passenger trains that the Indian Railways run. As there isn’t any train ticket reservation facility available for these kinds of trains, no PNR number becomes generated.
• Metro trains – A metro train is a train that is equipped with every technology and facility that has begun operations in many metro cities, such as Mumbai, Bangalore, and Delhi. As the metro train tickets are not reserved, no PNR number generation becomes processed here.
• Suburban local trains – Many fast local trains are available that halt at only the important stations. Here, reserving a seat does not seem possible. Hence, no PNR generation gets applied on a suburban train.
• Rajdhani Express trains – The Rajdhani Express Trains are fully air-conditioned and they are also fast trains having a lesser number of stops. These trains run between significant Indian cities. You can reserve the train tickets besides the PNR status.
