Advance booking is allowed up to 90 days before journey date. Passengers should book their tickets early enough to get a confirmed berth. If confirmed berth is not available, reservation status will show either RAC (Reservation against Cacellation) or WL (Waiting List).
Reservation Against Cancellation (RAC) means a passenger does not have a reserved berth, but he has sitting accommodation. Depepending on the number of waitlisted passengers, the reservation may be promoted to a confirmed berth when one becomes available due to last moment cancellations usually taking place close to the journey date. RAC passengers can board the train and can sit on the two side chairs. If a berth becomes available, one RAC passenger will get the berth, and the other RAC passenger can convert the two side chairs into a single berth.
Waiting List (WL) means a passenger may not get any berth or sitting accommodation. If enough number of confirmed or RAC passengers cancel their reservations, he/she will be accommodated. The size of waiting queue for each train may vary. Once the maximum number of wait listed tickets have been issued, any further reservation requests are refused with REGRET status. It is not possible to purchase a ticket with REGRET status.
