##If NOT you, who will tell:

(a) Names of the Station where your journey originates;
(b) Number of the Train
(c) Class in which you have been waitlisted

##If the location visible in your message is to be believed, I assume you have booked your ticket either by 7209 or 2864.

Dear All,

Firstly, thank you very much for this informative thread, and indeed forum. I wish I'd found it before booking my train tickets!

I have booked a return journey for two people from Jaipur (JP) to Arga (AGC) in class 1A on June 28th. The outward journey (JP-AGC, 2966) is confirmed, but we are placed as W/L 2 and W/L 3 for the return journey (AGC-JP, 2965). Could anyone offer some advice on how likely these are to be confirmed?

Is there any action I should take make sure that we get on this train? Perhaps I should try to book more tickets in different classes from here (UK) in advance of the trip, or should I just turn up at the station on the day and hope?

It's very important that we return to Jaipur as we must catch a flight back to Mumbai for a wedding!

Thanks VSP sir.. Usually I book to TCR when PGT tickets are over.

BTW, one of my friend has a ticket to PGT on the same date, same train. He is looking to cancel. If he cancels, will my seat get confirmed (read in an earlier post that there is no RAC for PQWL).

@ Mr Srinivas:

LOL

I enjoyed reading this response.

Just an update - my tatkal waitlisted tickets (CKWL6 and 7) got confirmed at the time of chart preparation.

PQWL - tickets from chennai to Jolarpet

Sir,

I had booked 9 tickets on the 19th of June. From Chennai to Jolarpet. Train#2675 Kovai Express.
All tickets were E-Tickets.

3 tickets were booked in CC class; booking status/current status is PQWL5, PQWL6, PQWL7.
PNR#4218668215

6 tickets were booked in 2S Class,Booing status/current status is PQWL4,PQWL5,PQWL6,PQWL7,PQWL8, PQWL9
PNR#4218653031

All tickets from Chennai to Jolarpet - on 26th Morning - Kovai Express - 6.15 am.

What is the total quota for allocation of berths int his train??
What's the % possibility of getting these tickets confirmed before the journey date???
Or should I cancel these and try through Tatkal??

Kindly look into to the above queries and expecting your response.

Regds,
Gautham

Dear Gautam,

##Please look at this:
-----------------------
2675 KOVAI EXPRESS 20-9-2010 CHENNAI CENTRAL MORAPPUR GENERAL
S.No. Date (DD-MM-YYYY) Class - CC Class -SL
1 20- 9-2010 AVAILABLE 10 REGRET/WL 1
2 21- 9-2010 AVAILABLE 10 REGRET/WL 1
.......................
2675 KOVAI EXPRESS 20-9-2010 CHENNAI CENTRAL SALEM JN GENERAL
S.No. Date (DD-MM-YYYY) Class - CC Class -SL
1 20- 9-2010 AVAILABLE 93 REGRET/WL 1
2 21- 9-2010 AVAILABLE 93 REGRET/WL 1
==================

##Had you booked your seats upto Salem, either you would have got Confirmed OR atleast you would have been in GNWL.

##The chances for the confirmation of your PQWL Tickets are somewhat bleak.

Hello all. I booked a ticket for July 13th on April 15th, at 8.05am and I got upto WL27. PNR number: 253-4191884. It's been two and a half months and there seems to be no movement on this position. Yet there are around 200 people who have ambitiously booked tickets behind me so I am optimistic that the particular train is known for last minute confirmations.

Any idea on my chances of RAC or CNF? Thanks a lot in advance.

Dear Rohan,

##The Most Surprising, Shocking and Interesting Status, that too, for SL Class, I have ever seen!!!!

##Please be rest assured that, 99.99%, this Status will move, atleast into RAC during Charting.

##Yes, you will move into confirmed status, provided your friend has a confirmed ticket!!!
