In this system, all information’s about the passengers are saved in the database of the computers. PNR means ‘Passenger Name Record’. It is stored and preserved in the relational database of a centralized reservation system, on that basis the passenger completes his/her journey. The details are associated with a unique ten-digit number called PNR printed on top of the left corner of the ticket. In the above-said database the name, age, and gender of passengers are saved.
