##Please note that NDLS-KQR & beyond upto HWH bookings come under General Quota; NDLS-GAYA & short of Gaya come under Pooled Quota; AND CNB-HWH & stations short of HWH come under Remote Location Quotas. How these Quotas function had already been explained in detail in another Thread.

##I don't think there is RAC before the Waiting List starts for CNB-HWH Quota. Please look at this:

5 26-11-2010 AVAILABLE 9 WL 5/WL 5
6 29-11-2010 AVAILABLE 14 WL 3/WL 3
=============

##Coming back, the chances for confirmation of your waitlisted tickets now depends upon the cancellations that may have to take place within the CNB-HWH Quota of 150 Berths before the Chart Prepaation at Kanpur on 2.11.2010/19.35hrs.
Hi Srinivas!!!

I had to book these tickets in hurry as i had my schedule hit due to my Mumbai-Kanpur Avadh ticket getting stuck in Waiting List...Finally, i had to fly to new delhi & get connected via Shatabdi to Kanpur....

Fortunately these tickets with Poorva got cleared & I had a nice journey with my parents...now i am back at kanpur...I have to move back to Mumbai in next 3 days for which again tickets are in waiting list...i am posting my query in a separate thread...

Regards,
Jai

@marquis_de: Tatkal moves much less than regular, but CKWL1 (current)should be getting confirmed.
Things in favour: Few days after diwali rather than immediately after, mid week. Things against: Long distance train, 2A - so few seats.
Hope you have explored availability in other trains as well.

@m4mahesh: Are these Tatkal? They look like tatkal: If yes - then NO Chance. If not, possible if an additional coach gets added to the train.

@j4jai: The RAC seems to be only 3 on this train. So unless, 5 gets cancelled you wont move into CNF, or atleast 2 for RAC.

Hi Narender,

Thanks for the reply. I got this booked on the morning of 5th Nov and date of journey is 7 Nov so its kinda immediate after diwali on forthcoming sunday.

The railway clerk told me that there were 12 seats available in HO quota which would me made available at the time of charting. So which list ( RLWL, CKWL, GNWL etc.) will be prioritized against the remaining seats of different quotas.

Will tatkal wait list be given priority over others?

Thanks.

@marquis_de: The preference will be GNWL and CKWL and last RLWL and PQWL. If there are 12 in HO quota then you have a high probability.

@quitefar: 2650 has 12 seats locked in other quotas that will get released while charting. So should be CNF. Being a tatkal it will have preference over other customers. Also it for the full distance. Good luck.

##If the other 12 Berths are utilised, than what will happen to the Tatkal Waitlisted Ticket of Mr.Quitefar?

##I have been telling that there will be heavy demand for departures on 7th November. As such, whoever is in waiting list (GEN/PQ/RL/CK) will have to have a back-up plan too!!!
