|Railway ticket code||Description|
|AVAILABLE||Confirmed availability for your ticket.|
|CAN/MOD||Cancelled or modified passenger.|
|CNF/Confirmed||Confirmed. Coach or berth number is available after chart preparation.|
General wait list. This is the most common type of wait list and has the highest chance to be confirmed. Upon confirmation, the status changes to RAC.
For example, if your availability showed the status “GNWL12/WL4,” the 12 indicates your initial position in the general wait list, while the 4 is your overall wait list status. The numbers indicate 8 passengers cancelled their confirmed or wait list ticket. Your general wait list position is unique to you on this trip.
|NOSB||No seat berth. This code is generally used for child passengers who aren’t assigned a berth as requested.|
|PQWL||Pooled quota wait list. This waitlist is shared by several small stations as opposed to a single station.|
|RAC||Reservation against cancellation. Your seat is guaranteed, but the berth needs to be shared between 2 people. If RAC becomes a CNF ticket, individual berths will be allotted.|
|R# #||RAC coach number or berth number. The same berth will be allotted to 2 RAC passengers and they need to share it. For example, “RA1, 12” refers to seat 12 in coach A1.|
|REGRET/WL||No more booking is permitted.|
|RELEASED||Ticket aren't cancelled, but alternative accommodations are provided.|
|RQWL||Roadside quota wait list. If you book a ticket from one intermediate station to another, that isn’t covered by any other quotas or wait lists, your request may be added to an RQWL.|
|TQWL||Tatkal wait list. When the wait list moves up, you can expect a confirmed berth instead of RAC.|
Wait list number. Each time a confirmed ticket or wait list ticket is cancelled, this number goes down.
For example, “WL4” indicates that 4 current passengers would need to cancel before you’re given the seat. If 2 people cancelled, it would become “WL2.”
