Dear Ahmed,

At the time of booking the Status was PQWL.4/PQWL.4. Even now, the status remains the same!!!!

The Charts for 6321 would be finalised today around 15.00 hrs. because the scheduled departure of the train is 18.50 hrs.

Dear Ahmed,

And one more thing if my ticket doesnt get confirmed will it get cancelled on its own.

##Ofcourse, YES, if your ticket happens to be an E-Ticket, which would get automatically cancelled, if it does not get confirmed, which also means you should not board, even if have a print-out.

##But, if you are having 'unconfirmed normal Sleeper Class Ticket' in your hand, then you 'can' Run After the Conductor, provided if he allows you to do so.:-)

Thanks a lot Prasad,

Your response had been very insight full. helped me know a lot about the reservation system. But i didnt find the answer for my last question in ur previous post.
Will the ticket get cancelled automatically if not confirmed? or i have to go n cancell it manually only?

And also one final thing. i need just a suggestion from you should i hold on till fnal chart gets prepared tat is around 15.00 hrs. Is there any slight chances that i may get ticket..?
or shall i cancell the ticket n plan my travel other way..?

##Please once again go through my reply. I have answered your question assuming that your's is an E-Ticket because nowhere have you mentioned whether you have an I-Ticket OR E-Ticket.

Dear Ahmed,

Having waited upto 10.30 hrs., why don't you wait till 15.00 hrs.? :-)

or shall i cancell the ticket n plan my travel other way..?

##Hmmm. Still you have NOT mentioned whether your's is a I-Ticket OR E-Ticket.

**If it is an E-Ticket it gets automatically cancelled, if it does NOT get confirmed. No problem!!

**But if it is an I-Ticket (**not a print-out), then you have to get it cancelled across the PRS Counter ONLY.

Dear Ahmed,

##I am aware there is heavy rush for the trains on 14th because 15th, 16th and 17th are Holidays.

##I am just curious as to why you have NOT selected 2684 which departs from SBC at 17.15 hrs. and arrives in Tiruppur at 23.14 hrs., in which most probably, you would not have faced the Pooled Quota problem. Please look at this:

##Please note the WL.Status both for TUP and ERS is one and the same, which means, there is no Pooled Quota in 2684.
--------------
##I am aware in Bangalore City "95 Minutes"(17.15>>18.50) matters much, but still, 2684 would have been better for you. In fact, there is a scope for your GNWL Ticket, if purchased, moving into RAC Status in 2684 but such an option is NOT available for 6321!!!

Sorry, i forgot to mention that i booked a E-ticket. So no problem. It'll get cancelled on its own. I understood that.

Ain't it like, The final chart will be prepared only 3 hrs before scheduled train departure time (18.50 hrs)?
Tat should be 15.50 hrs, right? but you have told it'll be done by 15.00 hrs itself.

So you think if i have luck i may get ticket then :-)
So its better to wait till end.. Is tat correct.. Mr.prasad..?

Actually few of my friends are leaving by that train to eranakulam. so i thought i would go along with them. They booked one day before and got RAC. Now thier ticket's are confirmed.

i didnt know this PQWL thing before.. but now thanks to you i came to know a lot more than that.

Dear Ahmed,

Normally Charts are finalised Four Hours before the scheduled departure of the Train. Sometimes, it could be three hours or two hours.:-)

Dear Ahmed,

When you select a train Check the Availability from:

i)From Originating Station to Terminating Station;
ii)From Originating Station to Intermediate Station;
iii) From One Intermediate Station to another Intermediate Station;
iv) From Intermediate Station to Ternminating Station.
------
For example, in respect of 6321,

**I have checked the availability for SBC-TVC/SBC-TCR/SBC-TUP/SA-TVC and found out the General Quota, the Pooled Quota and also the station where Pooled Quota terminates while booking from Originating Station.

**The SBC-PGT, SA-ERS, and SA-TVC is Pooled Quota whereas SBC-TCR & beyond is General Quota.

##In some long distance trains you will also find Remote Location Quota which is intended for the passengers travelling between a particular Intermediate Station and Terminating Station, which do not overlaps with Pooled Quota.

##There will be RAC, once the Remote Location Quota gets exhausted and after RAC, the RLWL commences.

KINDLY SEE THE MAILS AND REPLIES

EVEN IN THAT CASE BEFORE MAKING PAYMENT IT SHOWS SEATS AVAILABLE. IS IT NOT A MISLEADING FACTOR?

Dear Customer,



Kindly note that you have to check the availability while booking from the

boarding point station. As per railway rule system allots the seat from

the boarding point station not from the source station hence the system

allotted the seat availability from boarding point.



Please note that your ticket bearing pnr number 4300433174 from "TUP" to

"RJT" which is not boarding point it (TUP) is a source station. Boarding

point of this train(6614) is CBE. That is why you got waitlist ticket
