PQWL stands for Pooled Quota Waiting List and any code ending with WL is a Wait Listed and NOT a confirmed ticket.

You can read more about what a "Pooled" quota is but the technical explanation will not help much in deciding if the PQWL ticket will or will not become confirmed.

it is auto-cancelled
A ticket that stays wait listed after chart preparation (4 hours before train start time) will get automatically cancelled and you will be fully (less a small eTicket preparation charge, about Rs. 20) refunded and money put back in the account that was used for booking the eTicket.

However if your ticket got confirmed then you are required to cancell it if you decide not to travel to get the refund and I believe there will be some cancellation charge depending on when you cancell a confirmed ticket.

It means that the ticket between the stations that you are booking were in PQWL status but due to cancellations now tickets are available to be booked.
