RELD In Railway Reservation
I have booked my ticket online and I am getting this PNR number (6524575603) after booking the ticket. But after the final chart preparation, my ticket got released (RELD) and a new PNR number is generated.
You can check the current status of this PNR is RELD/0. You can also check the new PNR number in the remarks section. Also, my berth details will come with the new PNR number instead of the old PNR number.
After getting the new PNR number from the remarks section, you can check the final status of your ticket. In this PNR you will get your ticket status whether it is Confirmed or Waiting List. If it is a confirmed ticket then you can easily see your berth details with the new PNR.
Note: You will get the ticket on the same train in which you have booked your train ticket.
