Wait Listed Ticket


If your ticket bears the legend WL as current status, it means your tickets are not confirmed at the time of reservation. It would be advisable for you to check the status of your ticket after the finalization of the reservation chart to find out whether your ticket are confirmed. If they are still Wait listed. , do not board the reserved coaches.

There is a limit on issue of wait listed ticket in different classes by all the trains in computerized system. Wait listed tickets will not be issued beyond this limit.

Every endeavor is made by the Railways to attach additional coaches by important trains in case there is long waiting list (within the limit) to clear extra rush. In that event , it is likely that you may get confirmed accommodation by such trains. This can however be checked after finalization of the reservation chart. The passengers found traveling in by Rajdhani /  Shatabdi /Janashatabdi Exp. trains with wait listed tickets will not be excess charged and dealt with as in the case of wait listed passengers travelling in Mail / Express trains.

                                                                       Validity of Reserved Tickets

Your reserved tickets are valid ONLY FOR THE PARTICULAR TRAIN AND ON THE PARTICULAR DATE . In the event you are detected travelling on some other train with the same ticket , you will be treated as travelling without ticket and penalized .
