Hi guys. I have just made a booking for 3 passengers on the train 4864 (MARUDHAR EXPRESS) from Agra Fort to Varanasi (BSB) on 17-12-2006 (Class 2A). I have received confirmed seats for 2 passengers, but the third was marked RLWL 1. Could anyone tell me what does this mean and what are the changes and procedures to have this seat confirmed. I know we are travelling in high season and are afraid that we have to split up our tour group. Help please...

uneednt fear it means that the third person hasnt been able to get confirmed seat ...he is on waiting list where he will be the first one to get seat if any cancelation takes place...since ur journey is in december ...i believe that soon you'll see it also getting confirmed...
even if that ticket dosent get confirmed since he has a waiting ticket he can board the train and sit with you people on the confirmed seats.

WL1 - Waiting List 1
RLWL - Remote Location Wait List 1, which is just a system misnomer for WL1 only. but is generated as per system when u book tickets.

Out of interest......

How did you book?

An Agent, a friend in India or the IRCTC website?
.
SOS: Missing Person...

Please look at this thread, even if you are not in India.: Have you seen Jonathan Spollen?

He could be anywhere now: You might have met him, be able to help, or give information.

Interesting.

The site is not supposed to sell waitlisted tickets.

As I understand it... A waitlisted passenger, even WL1 is not supposed to board the train: only RAC or confirmed may board.

I have booked several waitlisted tickets through the site, but it is only allowed for the i-ticket, not the e-ticket

(or maybe the other way around, I forget. It is the ticket that you print yourself that should be confirmed only.)

EVen if strictly against the rules, it would seem to make sense.

Do you know, I'd almost forgotten about them, sadly, I'm not joking.

Dear Eopperman,

Though you have booked the tickets almost 60 days in advance, the limit prescribed, you got WL.1 and in all probability it should be PQWL.1/PQWL.1 because normally, RLWL is preceded by RAC and WL. is given only to those passengers who board the Train from the Originating Station. However, sometimes, if only one quota is operating on that train, even those from Intermediate Stations are placed alongwith WL Passengers.
==============
Now, please have a look at this:-
...
You Queried For Train Number Train Name Date (DD-MM-YYYY) Source Station Destination Station Quota Code
4864 MARUDHAR EXPRES 17-12-2006 JODHPUR JN VARANASI JN GENERAL

S.No. Date (DD-MM-YYYY) Class - 2A Class -3A
1 17-12-2006 AVAILABLE- 0023 AVAILABLE- 0089

2 19-12-2006 AVAILABLE- 0023 AVAILABLE- 0095
-------------------------------------------------------
##Berths are still available for Jodhpur-Varanasi Journey in the same train!!!!
======================
Now, please look at this:
---
You Queried For Train Number Train Name Date (DD-MM-YYYY) Source Station Destination Station Quota Code
4864 MARUDHAR EXPRES 17-12-2006 AGRA FORT VARANASI JN GENERAL

S.No. Date (DD-MM-YYYY) Class - 2A Class -3A
1 17-12-2006 WL 2/WL 2 WL/AVAILABLE

2 19-12-2006 AVAILABLE- 0002 AVAILABLE- 0006
-----------------
##Since the Quotas are different, you must have been placed in Pooled Quota. But, if you are fast enough, reserve your Berths in 3AC, right now. You will get confirmed status.
===========
##If you are dropped from the Waiting List, that is, your ticket does not get confirmed, then, if it is a day journey, it is manageable. But somehow, it would be difficult for night journeys.
---
##For example, if the two confirmed berths happened to be Two Upper Berths, how will you accomodate the "Dropped (Not-Confirmed Passenger)?
------
##However, if there are any vacancies in the JU-BSB Quota, on the date of journey, then, perhaps,n you may be confirmed against such vacancy (or) if there are any cancellations from out of the AF-BSB Bookings, then, also you will get confirmed.
===========
It is better, if you reserve One Berth in 3A and get a confirmed ticket for your friend, who is now waitlisted. Upto Sleeping Time, movement will be alowed between 2A and 3A.
