I Recently started using Indian Railways online ticket booking service ie IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Ltd.), and Is good in terms of ticket booking and more fast to check train status and PNR status compared to INDIAN RAILWAYS PASSENGER RESERVATION ENQUIRY, or indianrail.gov.in (which now comes with full of ADDS..). indian railway, indian railways, indian rail, irtc, indianrail.
Still one can get updates on mobile Dial 139 from your landline, mobile & CDMA phones for railway enquiries Railway SMS Enquiry Numbers: 57886,54959,58888,5676747 Send your query line PNR (pnr no.) to above numbers for checking PNR status.

Now you may also use HDFC / AXIS / SBI / Deutsche Bank / KVB (Karur Vysya Bank) VISA debit cards(only) for ticket booking through any of the credit card Payment Gateways (ICICI PG, HDFC PG, CITI PG).
