Hi
Does anyone know when the charts are prepared for the 2842 Coromandel Exp. leaving Chennai at 0845Hrs.

I had booked 2 tickets in 2842 on 26-12-2009 by 1A from Chennai to Howrah, currently WL 1 & 2.

I actually need the reservation only from Rajamundry.
But Rajamundry falls under RL Quota, so I booked the tkt. from MAS for a better chance of getting a confirmation.

I also booked 2 tkts for the same journey form Rajamundry in 1A, currently RLWL 1&2.

I am waiting to see if I get confirmation before 0845Hrs. for the MAS tickets in which case I can get the Boarding Point changed to Rajamundry and cancel the tickets booked in RL Quota.(Change of Boarding point allowed more than 24 hrs. before train dep. which is 0845Hrs)

If the MAS tickets remain in WL after 0845Hrs.today
I intend to wait till just before chart preperation time and then cancel them so that my chances of getting the RLWL tickets confirmed will be better
(as there are no other passengers booked from MAS in WL). I am willing to lose the 25% fare loss for a confirmed tkt.

That is I need the info about chart preperation time at Chennai for 2842.

Thanks in advance.

The charts for a morning departure (up till 12:00) are prepared before 17:00 the day before.

Are you aware that you needed to change the boarding station (to RJY) on the MAS-HWH tickets? (I'm sure you are as you seem to understand the system well).

As you say, you have the only waitlisted tickets from Chennai, and the reservation supervisor (and TTE) still have 2 HO quota places to play with, so it's likely that the MAS-HWH tickets will get confirmed in about 6 hours.

None of the following should affect you if you changed your boarding station.

Just had some thoughts regarding this strategy.......if there were still vacant 1A berths on the MAS-HWH quota, would they be used for the BZA/RJY-HWH quota?

I think they wouldn't.

Free upgrades could be the key here.

There's still 13 on the 2A waitlist, all are likely to get confirmed (or RAC) as I can still find another 14 berths available in other reservation quotas (FT + HO).

But lets say that they didn't all get confirmed (or RAC), some 2A passengers would be given free upgrades to the vacant 1A berths (allowing the same number of 2A waitlisted passengers to move to at least RAC).

So, a couple of questions to our rail Guru VSP.

If there were waitlisted 2A passengers on the MAS-HWH quota, would they be given upgrades to vacant 1A berths if there were waitlisted 1A passengers on the BZA-HWH quota?

Would upgrades be used to allow 2A RAC passengers to move to confirmed berths?

Just to complicate matters a little.

There's still 12 people waitlisted on the 2A Tatkal quota (MAS-HWH).

Would upgrades be used to allow 2A Tatkal waitlisted passengers to move to confirmed berths?

I am also holding 2 2A Tickets booked at WL 18 & 19 but currently at RAC 6&7.

So if I dont get the 1A quota, I will still be able to travel.

All these hastles because The journey is a must and cant be postponed.

If you have a RAC ticket on 2AC...cling on to it as they are most likely to get confirmed. Just cancel the 1A ticket...that will save you some money.

And as Steve said, you can reserve a ticket from MAS to HWH....but have to give your boarding point at RJY. Otherwise, the TTE from Chennai may allocate the seat to someone else if he does not find any valid passengers on it.
....life is a journey.....and the journey is more important than the destination........

##The Charts are nornmally finalised four hours or less than four hours before the scheduled departure of the train. For trains, whose departure is 12.00 noon or before that, the Charts are finalised previous day, but after 20.00 hrs.

##The Charts of 2842 are finalised around 22.00 hrs. on the previous day, because the PRS has to issue tickets upto 20.00 hrs.

To change a boarding point, do we have to physically go to the counter or can we do it online?

After 20:00.....because the PRS has to issue tickets upto 20.00?

That makes sense, but I've been told* that the charts are prepared before 17:00 for trains that depart the next morning (up to 12:00).

* I can't be 100% sure who told me, but I have that knowledge firmly etched in my brain as 'Fact', and that normally only happens when I'm told the info by VSP.

Can you please give your opinions on the following questions?

##perhaps, it would have helped, had you indicated the Number of the Train!!!

##Is the train in your mind - passin train (or) originating train?
