Tomorrow's Mumbai - Delhi Yuva express has waiting list of the order of 300, and Yuva quota is available 506, I can guarantee even 6 of them won't be used. So what I want to know is, are the Yuva quota seats transferred to general on chart preparation? I mean, can I book a general quota ticket and be sure that it'll get confirmed??

I have a Sleeper class ticker in another train but it'd be better if I get this.

Yuva express are sitting only - AC Chair Car. So if that's Ok, then go ahead.
Can't see availability in Yuva quota.

Well spotted, I guess they must get transferred to the general quota, and interestingly, there seems to be no Tatkal quota, and still 32 left in HO quota, so unless I'm missing something, you should definitely get confirmed.

17 hours (overnight) in a chair, scary.

Thanks Narendra & Steven

I know overnight in chair car is scary, but still feel it's better than Sleeper class + Winter + Holiday Season crowd.

Will book the ticket anyway, and if it get's confirmed then will go for TDR for the other ticket.
