I have booked my ticket for this train till Chittaurgarh as Confirmed tickets till Ajmer were not available. My Journey date is 10/04/2015.
Can I get a confirm seat from Chittaurgarh till Ajmer if I ask the TTE for one, during my Journey???

If vacant seat is available, he will charge you on-board and issue an extension ticket. If BDTS - Ajmer is 100 rs, BDTS - COR is 90 rs & COR - Ajmer is 30 rs, he will not charge 100-90 = 10, but rather u wud b charged 30 Rs as fresh ticket.

Will it be wise to book a normal reservation ticket from COR to AII in the same train for further journey, even if it is in Waiting, instead of asking fr ticket on board from the TTE?

Yes, it will be a good idea, should be a PRS ticket though. Otherwise it will get cancelled if remained in WL on Chart preparation.
Already having a ticket will also give a good impression to the TTE, that this guy isnt without ticket (WT). He just couldnt get full reservation.
The flip side is - Technically you cant travel on a WL ticket in reserved compartment. He 'can' ask you to move to UR coach. But I guess he will not do that. If you can park yourself on some good co-passenger's
berth for the COR - AII stretch, you are good to go!

okay . You have to change and go to ajmer portion
Ajmer portion gets 20-30% empty at COR ( sleeper ) . you will easily get empty seats .

I can make the reversal, or not. I have both the option open in MMR. I have taken the reversal option, becuse if i do the reversal then it will take lesser time to change the loco. Kindly observe the flag sir.

Increasing ARP window to 120 days!!!! Worst decision ever..... Now it will become more difficult to get a confirmed ticket! Railway Touts must be having a big bash at the moment!!!!!

Add a halt at borivali, else there is no use running this train from Western Railway. Dadar pe halt deke matlab hi nahi hai. Dadar wale already Central Railway ki trains me jaa sakte hai. Give halt at Borivali and increase halt duration at Vasai. 10 Minutes me Rake Reversal not possible. Minimum 20 minutes lagta hai

Please change the departure time from Mumbai and Arrival time at Agra. Why whould someone going to Gwalior or Agra, travel from this train, if he reaches his destination at such odd hours!! Keep arrival at Agra around 6-7 pm in the evening. and plan rest of the time table accordingly.
Also avg speed of 53 kmph is a bit slow. Try to speed it up a bit.
