1. PQWL is quite uncertain.
2. Tough to tell (Also considering your journey leg)

TO me, both should confirm, but still I would request you to consider alternatives.

Hi there

Have read all the previosu posts on waitlists and have a question. We booked on two sleeper coach tickets on Cleartrip for train# 16345 from Madgaon to Allepey on 28 October. Our ticket reflects "RLWL-2" and "RLWL -3". What does the "RL" stand for?.

Please confirm-- if 3 people ahead of us cancel, we should get a confirmed berth? Will our PNR status show us berth numbers once we are confirmed? Or must we wait until we get to the station of boarding?

thanks for your help.

RL is Remote Location.
Yes, 3 cancellations will get you a confirmed berth.
Yes, if it confirms ahead of DOJ. If not it will show confirmed (CNF). You can track status from indianrail.gov.in PNR enquiry page.

None should get clear before chart preparation. In this case, you would need to make a choice.

All these three IFs are very big, and it is impossible to predict at this point as to what will happen on 1.8.2011, that is, when Charts are finalised.
##Please look at this:
-----------------------------
*12074 BBS JAN SHATABD 1-8-2011 BHUBANESWAR HOWRAH JN TATKAL
S.No. Date (DD-MM-YYYY) Class - CC Class -2S
1 1- 8-2011 Charting Done Charting Done
2 2- 8-2011 WL 7/WL 7 AVAILABLE 120
3 3- 8-2011 AVAILABLE 4 AVAILABLE 120
.....................

##Nobody has booked 2S Seat in Tatkal Quota!!

Hello everyone,

Can someone please see and advice on the following Waitlisted booking :-

Train Name HIMALAYAN QUEEN
From:- Kalka
To: Shimla
Date 06-8-2011
Class CC Boarding Point KLK
Reservation Upto SML
Quota General

Status:- WL/18

Is there any chance this is going to get confirmed?
Also, the ticket was purchased through IRCTC; If it doesn't get confirmed, upto when should it be cancelled to get the refund? If we wait until chart preparation, what is the procedure to cancel it?

Thanking you all in advance

##In so far 'cancellation' aspect is concerned, this ticket "automatically" gets cancelled, if it do not gets confirmed before/during Chart Preparation. Also, please note RAC DO NOT exists for AC Chair Car bookings.

##The total quota is 133 Seats. Please take a look at this:
--------------
52455 HIMALYAN QUEEN 31-8-2011 KALKA SIMLA GENERAL
S.No. Date (DD-MM-YYYY) Class - CC
1 31- 8-2011 AVAILABLE 127
2 1- 9-2011 AVAILABLE 133
.........................

##But, 6th being Saturday, slightly doubtful, and there is no Tatkal Quota. Please look at this:
-------------------
52455 HIMALYAN QUEEN 31-8-2011 KALKA SIMLA TATKAL
S.No. Date (DD-MM-YYYY) Class - CC
1 31- 8-2011 REGRET/WL 1
2 1- 9-2011 REGRET/WL 1
.............................. ...

Is there any mail ID where i can mail to release of LB to my mother who is travelling alone from Pune to Yesvantpur.
