How to predict if you RAC or waitlist ticket will get confirmed

In this post we will talk about Rail waitlistology!



What is rail waitlistology?
Basically, its the study of Indian railway ticket booking patterns with different angles, viewpoints and logic to be able to predict its future course of action! By the way that's not an official term.


The Moment of Suspense
As much fun it is to travel in train in India. The suspense factor is more whether your wait listed ticket will get confirmed or not. Until the last time of chart preparation, all we do is just cross their fingers and hope that the ticket gets confirmed.

We log on to check the PNR status again and again. Each time with the hope to see a "Confirm- CNF" sign on the page. Sometimes we even wait till the chart preparation. Some get lucky while others not.


How predicting will help?
Any travel or journey will be smoother and more comfortable and you will not have to make last minute arrangements. Sure we also have tricks to travel without a confirmed ticket . But that may not be suitable for everyone. May be you are traveling with your family or you just don't like the idea of traveling without a confirmed seat.

You might probably weighing your options that if there are less chances of getting a train ticket confirmed i will book a flight. If you wait to book the flight only to see that your ticket has not been confirmed you will end up purchasing flight tickets at a even higher price.

So, it will be beneficial if you can sort of predict the chances of getting the tickets confirmed.


Is it really possible to predict future?
Now, predicting wait-list tickets getting confirmed is like predicting human nature. It's like predicting how your girlfriend will be behaving with you this evening! It is not easy to tell! Really!

It depends upon several factors. So it cannot be 100% accurate. But there are indeed some formula and algorithm when used properly you can get a fair idea weather if your ticket will get confirmed or not!

Let's take a fictional situation where you have to go to Mumbai in Pashchim express. Here are some of the ideas that we would use in predicting if a train ticket will get confirmed or not:
 
  • STEP NO 1  KNOW YOUR TRAIN

    • A - The world of Quotas
      There are several quotas on every train. Almost half of the seats are reserved for some or the other quota ranging from Tatkal, Ladies, VIP, Handicapped, Foreign Tourist to several others.

      So one of the quickest way to know your chances of getting a ticket booked or not you will have to see how many tickets are available in these quotas. More tickets available in the quotas, more chances of your ticket getting confirmed.


      How to find quota details:
      You can do so by logging on official Indian Railway site http://www.indiarail.gov.in

      Here you click on train between important stations.

      On next page you can choose different quotas and then search how many seats are available in it by clicking on "Get availability" button.



      So for example

      let's say you are traveling in Pashchim express from Delhi to Mumbai in the sleeper class. Your waiting list number is around 13 . And there are 4 days left for the journey.

      After doing the quota research you find that
      • VIP Quota has 20 seats available. 
      • More seats available in ladies quota or even handicap quota. 
      • Let's say total seats available in the quotas are around 30


        Time for Prediction:
        Let's say that the total seats available is around 30 and your waiting number is 13.

        Even after some quota bookings chances are HIGH that your ticket will get confirmed after chart preparation.  Because, there more then twice number of seats available. Even if there are new bookings, there would be some cancellations too. So this makes our chances high!
        But if there were only 4-5 tickets available, chances of confirmation becomes lesser.
    • B- Look at ROUTE Source and destination
      The majority of seats are available to the source station passengers. In the above example of Paschim express, only a portion of Delhi passengers get a quota which is less then Amritsar which is the starting station.

      Explanation:
      If you plan to go from Delhi to Mumbai. It's better to buy a ticket of train that starts from Delhi rather than of a train which is on a via route.

      Why?
      Because the source station has major quotas and more seats. A station en-route usually have a very little quota. So it would be better to book a 15 waiting list ticket of a train starting from Delhi rather than getting a 5 WL ticket of a train where Delhi is only a remote location quota. (Which is very less usually)
    • Rack composition
      Another thing to look for is how many coaches of different classes are on the train.

      • If there are few coaches (seats) in your ticket's class then chances are less that your ticket will be confirmed.

      • Example: In most trains 2nd AC seats are very less. Less seats means less seats quotas, less cancellations. And finally, less chances of getting it confirmed.

      • For instance in Garib Rath, has only 3E class rakes so there is a high chance to get a wait list confirming in this train. My personal experience has been that more 100 waiting list on a Garib Rath train will have a good chance of getting a confirmed seat!
    • Train timings
      Trains that start in the night for over night journey has more traffic and less cancellations as compared to the ones starting in early morning.

      Most seats are available in the trains that start in odd-timings. If there are other options available in the day. People will book the day train first.
    • The class itself
      • Sleeper class has most cancellations. Because it always has maximum number of seats. 
      • There are few cancellations in 1AC and 2nd AC.
  • STEP 2 LOOK AT YOUR WAITING LISTIf you look closely your wait list ticket will show two numbers WL 58/ 24

    The number of left side, 58 tells you that when you booked the ticket it was 58  waiting. 24 tells your current wait list status.

    What this tells you

    It is an indicator of amount of cancellations happening since you've bought the ticket. So if there are less cancellations it would mean that chances of getting your ticket being confirmed is less too!

    Examples:
    • WL 58/50 - only 8 tickets cancelled. This would mean less people are canceling their tickets.
    • WL 50/10 - 40 tickets have been cancelled! This means that a lot of people are canceling the tickets! A very good sign!


  • STEP NO 2 LOOK AT BOOKING PATTERNS
    In the previous step we looked at our ticket's wait list number. Now let's have a look at number shown while booking the ticket.

    When you book the ticket. The availability status will show a number like WL 112/54

    This number tells you a story. 112 here means that in this section, waiting list has gone upto 112. The next number 54 tells that at this moment there are 54 people ahead of you. So if you book a ticket now, you'll be the 55th.

    How is this useful
    This will get you an idea about how many people cancel the tickets on a particular train. If the difference is not much then probably there are less cancellations.

    Less cancellations means that if you buy a high wait list ticket in this section then your chances of getting a confirmed seat are very less.

    On the other hand if there's a stark difference between maximum waiting and current waiting like WL 50/ 10 it would mean that there are many cancellations and this would be a positive sign!
  • STEP NO 3 CHECK CURRENT AFFAIRS AND OTHER COMMON RULES
    There are several other factors that influence waiting list cancellations.


    • Festival time like holi, diwali, rakhi. lesser cancellations and waiting list just keeps on increasing.
    • Public holidays - less cancellations one day before the holiday. Because many people who work outstations book an overnight ticket to spend time with the family in the hometown.
    • Evening trains - The trains with overnight journey will have maximum reservations. Because less people want to waste day time in traveling.
    • Long distance trains- have lesser cancellations. Because for short distances, people might change the plan to go in the bus or even hire a taxi. But the only comfortable way of traveling long distance journey of anything more than 10 hours would be train.

      So if your ticket is of a long distance route, it will have less cancellations.
    • Weekends -  lesser cancellations and more bookings. This is the time when outstation workers go on an overnight journey to meet their families. And people make weekend travel plans.

      If its not urgent for you its always better to book ticket in the middle of the week. Like Wednesday etc.

      Friday night and Saturday night trains are always full. So are Sunday night trains, when people want to reach to their work city to join work on Monday.
    • Yearly Timings
      During summer holiday i.e. between April to July, getting a ticket is very very difficult. This is the holiday time for children so many families plan to visit relatives in other cities or go on a vacation. Less cancellations at this time too.

Another criteria is how advance you book your ticket. If you book your ticket one month in advance, then WL 50 is OK, but if you book it 3-4 days (or one week) in advance, even WL 20 is too much.

@ Romil
That would make no difference. However:
@ Check for ladies quota before booking the ticket.

@ Ritu, sorry without exact details it is not possible to predict. Can you mention the train number? btw RAC does means that you can board the train. RAC 8 sounds promising and it should get confirmed prima facie!

What is the strategy of RLWL? and Why the hell irctc allows to book till 150WL in some trains?
I believe irctc ticketing strategy is not good and it has many loop holes,whom we need to complaint about these? and now a days irctc website became crap and tried calling customer care and always its in responsive :(
