HIGHLIGHTS

  • The advance booking for a train ticket opens 120 days before the date of journey
  • waitlisted ticket rules
  • IRCTC

IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation), which handles the catering and tourism operations of the Indian Railways, also provides the facility of booking train tickets online. The advance booking for a train ticket opens 120 days before the date of journey, IRCTC stated on its official website. Passengers booking a ticket are assigned a specific status which can be waiting (WL), Reservation against Cancellation (RAC), or confirmed (full berth). When the status of a passenger is marked as WL followed by a number, it means that the passenger has been waitlisted.

IRCTC has recently released certain waitlisted ticket rules which a person should know:

  1. The name of the passengers whose status is fully confirmed/ fully RAC after chart preparation, appears in the chart. These people can undertake their journey.
  2. The name of the passengers whose names are partly confirmed/partly on waitlist or partly RAC/partly on waitlist, appears in charts including the waitlist passengers.
  3. Cancellation of e-tickets by the customer/agent through IRCTC's website is permitted only before chart preparation of the train.
  4. The name of passengers who are fully on the waiting list after chart preparation are dropped and do not appear in chart. They are not allowed to board the train. If detected travelling in the train, they will be treated as passenger travelling without ticket, and will be penalised as per railway rules.
  5. The cancellation of passengers on the waiting list is done by the IRCTC after chart preparation is complete, and refund is credited to the customer's account electronically.
