This discussion thread is meant for Waitlist questions for the Indian Railways. If you do not know the meaning of Waitlist for Indian Trains, then please read this article that describes the concepts of Wait Lists (WL) and Reservations Against Cancellation (RAC).

Also, when requesting information on this thread, please post the following details of your travel:
  • Train Number
  • Date of Travel
  • Class of Travel
  • Departure Station
  • Destination Station
  • WL Status at booking
  • WL Status Current

If you know your PNR you can use this site to check your current status. http://www.indianrail.gov.in/pnr_Enq.html

Mr. Narendra and Mr. Srinivasa, another few queries:
1. wanted to know if these waiting tickets in tatkal be promoted online. mean to say, i have been checking for their PNR status online till now. is it correct to do so or will these now be promoted only when the chart is prepared?
2. in case i get 1 ticket confirmed, will we(my wife, daughter(8months) and myself) be able to board the train. i am worried about this time since i am traveling with my young daughter(8 months).
3. god forbid, if the tickets dont get confirmed, what happens? can we board the train? or if we cant board the train, how about the reimbursement of the money?

thanks a ton in advance!

Question WL status (Too Confusing)..Pls help...

Hi all,

My query is-

"I booked tickets for Allahabad Jn., from-Bilaspur Jn. for 08/11/2010, Details are as follws:-

Train name - 5160-Sarnath Exp. (Durg-Chapra)
I booked a ticket in 2AC which has wait list
Booking status- W/L 12,RLGN, Current Status- W/L 12
Booken on- 04/10/2010 (almost 1 month ago)
But the status is still same (W/L-12).

Can some1 pls explain me what's this mean "RLGN" & what's the chance to get it confirmed ?

Present status of 2AC is (in General Quota)-WL 30/WL 23.

Now my query is- As per present status WL30/WL23 & my Status is-WL12/WL12....OK

So why it's not showing & berth difference in my status (WL30/WL23. WL12/WL12) I hope as per present status should be-WL12/WL7....?
am I right...?

So why it's showing different status....& what is the meaning of RLGN (Remote Location G....? N....?)



Query-2:-

I booked a ticket in sleeper class today (on 06/11/2010) for backup it's status is:-
Booking Status-W/L 6,CK, Current Status-W/L 4
also need to know the meaning of "CK" & possibilities to get it confirmed

##This had already been explained very long back in this Forum at the following link:

http://www.indiamike.com/india/india...lained-t63844/

##In so far as confirmation is concerned, those in Remote Location Waiting List, would get confirmed ONLY when there are cancellations within the Remote Location Quota;

AND

also when vacancies arise in General Quota, when charts are finalised at the Train Originating Station.

##Now, please look at this:

##The DURG-CPR Bookings come under General Quota and BSP-CPR bookings come under Remote Location Quota.

##Since General Quota is running into Waiting List, your chances for confirmation are now restricted to the cancellations within Remote Location Quota which is just 6 Berths. Please look at this:

@Quitefar:
1. you can check them. They move only when there are cancellations and when the charts get prepared. Once prepared no movement is possible except by the TTE on the train.
2&3. On a WL ticket, the passenger can't travel. If the ticket was booked online, it is automatically cancelled and paid back to the account thru which it was booked.

Considering you have an infant, pl explore alternatives as well.

@pvsvk: Impossible, without a miracle.

Have you considered travelling in 2S during the day by Janmabhoomi exp. Or look at bus options.

##Madurai has got Remote Location Quota in 6731 Tuticorin-Mysore Express and also a "separate Tatkal Quota".

##Mostly, your chances are restricted to the cancellations within this Tatkal Quota of 77 Berths. Perhaps, you may think of a back-up- plan!!!

##NOT 'OK', because General Quota Waiting List AND the Remote Location Waiting List are absolutely "different"!!!

##Your status will come down ONLY when there are cancellations within the Remote Location Quota Confirmed Bookings (or) within the Remote Location Quota Waiting List.

##There is no RAC in this Remote Location Quota.

Dear "vsp27759" & "narendra.d"

Thanks for reply.

The "Tatkal quota" status:-

Train Number-5160
Train Name- SARNATH EXPRESS
Date(DD-MM-YYYY- 08-11-2010
Source Station- BILASPUR JN
Destination Station- ALLAHABAD JN
Quota Code- TATKAL
Class - 2A - WL 2/WL 2
Class -3A - WL 2/WL 2 (I also booked it in tatkal status- CKWL 2/CKWL 2)
Class - SL - WL 17/WL 15 (I booked CK WL6/WL4).

Should I book either on "2A" or "3A" in "Tatkal Quota" which have less wait list?

Will it be confirmed...?

Please give me suggestions.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I also booked another ticket in 3A (tatkal) CKWL 2/CKWL 2.

Now for which ticket I should wait to cancel until chart preparation (most probability to get confirm)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's must for me to get this train as I've to catch another train (4511-NAUCHANDI EXP.) from "Allahabad Jn.to Shehjahanpur Jn." at "Allabad Jn."

Please reply ASAP so that I could book ticket befrore this wait list exceeds...

Thanks in advance.

@sankalp: I think, VSP and me have already given our opinion, VSP in much more detail. For travel on 8.11 you should have abeen at the counter at 7.30am today morning. You have a chance just in the first few minutes when tatkal opens, to get a confirmed tatkal ticket. Now its too late and since Bilaspur is a Remote location, the quota is small. Wait till chart preparation to test your luck, but it seems futile.

If you have a connecting train to catch, you have to resign yourself to travelling without reservation.

Note: Also please use regular font.

Any chances of my ticket getting confirmed?

I booked a 3AC berth in train #2309(RJPB Rajdhani) from Allahabad to Delhi for Nov 09. The current status is RLWL 2 (it was RLWL 5 at the time of booking). Any chances of this ticket getting confirmed?

Also, can i board the train (RJPB Rajdhani) with this waitlisted ticket in case it doesn't get confirmed?

Thanks
