  1. Name of the passengers whose status is fully confirmed / fully RAC after chart preparation, their names shall appear in charts & they can undertake their journey.
  1. Name of the passengers whose names are partially confirmed/partially wait list or partially RAC their names shall appear in charts including the wait list passengers. (All including Waiting list passenger may travel, They may be allotted berths if there are any cancellation in the coach. Else you may have to adjust amongst yourselves. But this cannot be claimed as right. Some TTEs may not permit.)
  1. Cancellation of e-tickets by the customer/Agent through Internet is permitted only before chart preparation of the train. For any claims on e-tickets to be cancelled after the preparation of Reservation charts, the user has to send an email at the earliest possible time to etickets@irctc.co.in giving full details of the ticket and stating the claim, which would then be processed by IRCTC with the Railway administration offline and refunds as sanctioned by the Railway administration would be credited back to the user’s account.

Their cancellation shall be done by IRCTC after chart preparation and refund shall be arranged from Railways by IRCTC and credited to customer/Agent account electronically.

      Name of the passengers whose names are partly confirmed/partly waitlist or partly RAC/partly waitlist, their names shall appear in charts including the waitlist passengers.

      instructions to permit the partiallly waitlisted passenger to board the same coach with the CNF passengers of the same PNR,even it is one CNF and 5 WL. He said there is no circular or official rule stating this. But no berth or seat will be provided. They have to adjust with the CNF berth/seat.

    I m surprised at ur comments on RLWL1 position to travel.Yr opinion is NOT matched per provisions of INDIAN RAILWAYS ? WHY ? ON RLWL1 position ; IRCTC, NDLS CUSTOMER CARE specifically mention that after chart prepration all RLWL passengers will be treated as ticketless even on ONE PNR, when 1 berth is confirmed & other is ON RLWL1. In that case , RLWL1 has to cancell tkt by filing a TDR before 30 minutes of dept of train. Waitlisted passgr will NOT be allowed to travel on same PNR ; when 1 berth is cfmd.
    U r saying both passgrs have to adjust on 1 berthon same PNR. On train TT WILL NOT ALLOW IT as per IRCTC, customer Care, NDLS & TT will recover penalty from WL pssgr.

      Well you will also Right but in Some cases it can be (As per Rules Not, But Practically Many TTE Allowed if both Passengers are ready to adjust and the depend Circumstances. Also Some TTEs may not permit). And in Slipper Reserved/3 Tier AC lots of Partially Waiting Passengers are Traveling (Details from experience and Other Sources ).

      Anyway I notice that you mention in you comment your Ticket in 1st AC, As i am not found any sources that in 1st and 2nd AC Coach TTE allow Waiting Passengers. So, Batter Make Sure with Railway Customer Care.

      Thank you.

      Yes, You are Right.

      Behind truth why waiting E-Ticket not valid, Is Because In the chart carried by Ticket Examiner Only Confirmed Passneger Details available. TTE Can’t Verify the Waiting Ticket So to avoid scam tickets they allow only Counter Ticket.

    In (an e ticket) One PNR (booke for 2 persons) one tkt is confirmed and the other in is wait listed. in that case if we opt for VIKALP scheme,
    1. will they accomodate the waitlisted passenger alone inthe alternate available train or
    2. Both the persons booked in the same PNR will be accommodated in the alternate train in the VIKALP scheme.
    3. it is given that differential amount will neither be charged nor refunded, in that case what will they do if they acccomodate all the passengers in one PNR ( one confirmed and one waitlisted)
    4. is there any clarification that the wait listed person can also board the train along with the confirmed person tkt as both the tkts are booked in one PNR.
