Your waitlist is 96. Also, add to it there would be atleast 20 RAC on this section.So chances of getting full sleeper are a bit unfavorable until and unless there are large cancellations.

thanks gaurav,
but is there a probabilty of adding a coach?
I heared from a source(dunno whether its true)
that if there is a huge number of waitlist during holiday(to be more specific more than 100 waitlist) then there is rule to add a coach.
is true or just a rumour?
thanks

##Since, your's a PQWL Ticket, I doubt whether it gets confirmed.

##Even if an extra-coach is attached, it absorbs ONLY those in GNWL!!!!

hi srinivas
thanks a lot for the info....
so I guess i dont have much hopes...
but i have a doubt
when I type in irctc my pnr number it displays WL
but when I take print out it says PQWL
what should I consider it as?

sorry for asking this I guess you must have done it before
but I want to know the difference between PQWL and WL and can we choose that when we are booking tickets?

and when do they finalise upon adding a coach
thanks

Most of the times coaches are added just before chart preparation. In other words you would not know whether the coach has been added 4 hrs before train departure. In other cases if you see huge diffence in W/L numbers (booking and Current W/L position) say something like W/L 250 W/L 4 a drop of 250 or more indicates extra coach been added.

##This is the nuisance with IRCTC Site!!!

what should I consider it as?

##You must consider what your print-out says!!!!

##As i said, even if an extra-coach is added, it would NOT benefit you much.

##The decision to attach an extra-coach is, normally, taken only on the day of journey.

Of course that is normal. But specially in Summer the coaches are added much before to clear huge Waitlists and you would see a remarkable drop in W/L status. Many times I have got confirmed seat this way by initially having a high W/L number.

Need help on WL status

Hi, This is the first time I'm posting here. Need help.

I have booked on the Ananthapuri Express 6123 from Chennai to Madurai on 1st May 2009.

My status is WL/11 to WL/16 on class 3A. I would like know whether is any possibility of my ticket getting confirmed. Since I am travelling with small kids, I am confused whether to go ahead with the travel plan or cancel the WL tickets.

Thanks,
Mona

##If a decision is taken to attach an extra-coach much in advance, then seats would also get filled-up simultaneously and the Waiting List which you see is only after filling-up of these extra coaches.

##But if it is decided at the eleventh hour, then it would benefit those in Waiting List.

##In any case, as on date, the trains cannot carry more than 24 coaches. So, in case of 24-coach trains, in a rarest of the rare cases, one General Coach is replaced with One SL Coach (or) One 3AC Coach (or) One 2AC Coach, duly taking into account the Waiting Lists prevailing for these classes, at that point of time.

It is an unfavorable chance...you should have preferred 2652 at the time of booking the ticket.

Hello, thanks for the reply... my PNR Status says...

Status Report
S# Booking Status Current Status
1 W/L 3 W/L 3

Since there are only 11 berths and no RAC, does this mean I have very little chance of getting a seat? I guess I'll have to skip Amritsar and spend several days getting from Bikaner to Dharamsala by bus.

E-Ticket Question / Need Help

Hi Everybody,

I am booked on a train from Mumbai to Delhi on May 5th. When I check the PNR status via the website it says that both my wife and I are CNF. My understanding is that this means that we are confirmed on the train and will recieve the birth the day of travel. However, when I print my "E-ticket" under status it still says:

WL 2/WL 2/ / 0000
WL 3/WL 3/ / 0000

When we originally booked the tickets we were at WL 2/3 but the PNR check now says CNF...why does it not list this on the E-ticket?

Thanks so much for your help!

-Marc
