How to Track the RAC Status

Name should not be empty

RAC and waitlist positions always seem to improve, but it depends on many things, most notable is how far in advance you buy your ticket.

For any RAC/WL enquiry, you will need the PNR (passenger name record) number.

This is a 10 digit (3+7) number and is located at the top left of your ticket (top right on an e-ticket).

You can check the current status of your ticket by one of the following methods:

  • Click on the following link and enter your PNR number.
  • Online PNR enquiry service is available 04:00 - 23:30 IST (09:30 - 05:00 GMT).
  • If in India, dial 139 from anywhere in India and you’ll need your PNR number to enquire.
  • There are also PNR machines in most of the big railway stations.

​Note: 2nd number is your new position and CNF stands for ‘confirmed’
