I have booked tickets for 3 passengers for travel from NDLS to BCT in 2AC in Diwali time, the status is WL. What happens if the status remains same as WL till the time of boarding the train. Can I still board the train in 2AC compartments with WL ticket. I have booked tickets at the counter and not online.
Thank you..!

Now a days, when we make online reservation through IRCTC, we get option of "VIKALP"
Can anyone explain what this "VIKALP" stands for.

Better to reach late than to end up in waiting list. You can guess the approximate delay and plan accordingly.

That's what I have said that you have asked a Genuine Question but some demented mind has flagged an objection. What's the need of Objection here.

You haven't given your exact query in main post dear, still you have not given the date, hence the members didn't see the post as a query but a... Let it be, write down your exact details what do you need from this trains and members shall help.
Also your very first blog post is "This train almost runs late only, any specific reason for this.", doesn't seem to be a welcoming one, given the past selected few ids started their post in this very negative way.

I am planning to book ticket for 2 Adults and I don't want separate berth for child (who is 7 years), I checked on IRCTC, there is option of opting of berth. If I do not opt for berth, still can I get snacks and dinner for child as I will be paying half fare of child. Is snacks and dinner provided to child where berth is not opted.

Food is only provided to children who are less than 5 Years. Above that not opting a berth, you would have to technically pay the charges. But practically, if you ask the caterers they will provide you and you can pay them some last moment tip..

Yes, so if I make selection of coupe while booking ticket exact 120 days in advance, is it likely to get confirmed coupe for 2 Adults (1 Child), or may be allotted berth either in coupe or cabin.

No,there isn't seperate option in IRCTC for booking coupe in 1stAC!!!. try visiting the Head TTE's office at the station where charting will be done and ask him to allot the berth of your choice(request him,as you have one child that may add you benefit)
