Whether the arrival at KALKA (KLK) by the train No. 12311 (HWH DLI KLK MAIL) is connected to departure of train No. 52451 (SHIVALK DLX EXP)?
Comming 20-Sep-2011 my neighbour family is scheduled reach KALKA (KLK) at about 04:30 hours and just before 05:30 hours (that is within less than an hour) they are planning to board on Train No. 52451 (SHIVALK DLX EXP) from the same station KALKA (KLK) accordingly planned to reserved tickets for train No. 52451 (SHIVALK DLX EXP) on the same date & station.

the question is, whether their planing of boarding train No. 52451 (SHIVALK DLX EXP) on the same date of arrival by the train No. 12311 (HWH DLI KLK MAIL) is going to be risky if the train No. 12311 (HWH DLI KLK MAIL) reaches late at KALKA (KLK)?
Please help in this regard.

People here have reported that Shivalik and Kalka Mail are connected. Generally, Shivalik waits for Kalka Mail passengers.

@Soumendra Nath Thakur (সৌমেন্দ্র নাথ ঠাকুর): Re# 201093-0
generally Shivalik waits for kalka mail to arrive. But the maximum delayed time is up to 2 hrs, if kalka is late by more than 2 hrs then it becomes risky.
You may also have a booking in 52453 kalka shimla express a backup plan (eticket -recomended) which leaves at 6am from KLK . Unused one can be cancelled up to 24 hrs through irctc.co.in with only Rs.60 being deducted per head which can be done after you arrive Shimla.

IS NOT IT AN UNREASONABLE AND IMPROPER DENIAL OF RESERVATION?"
I have paid for an India Railway Journey ticket from Dehradun (DDN), to Howrah JN (HWH) while there were adequate berths availability but desired to board from Haridwar Jn (HW) - a station after Dehradun (DDN). Adequate berths were still available even after my said booking was confirmed.
However, instead of adequate berth availability, before and even after making required full payment for the journey between Dehradun (DDN) and Howrah JN (HWH), we have denied confirmed berths by Indian Railways (IRCTC) since, as
...
more...
it appeared to me, that we have desired to board from a station after initial station Dehradun (DDN).
So, the entire observation made me confused that when Indian Railway (IRCTC) accepted payment for a Reservation Ticket between Dehradun (DDN) to Howrah JN (HWH) stations, then how can they (IRCTC) allow someone else to avail the same berth already reserved and paid by me and even keep allowing the same person to occupy same berth even after I board in the train from Haridwar Jn (HW)?
So after realising said action, later, I was compelled to cancel my ticket and lost Rs. 80/- towards IRCTS Charge and others for such compelled cancellation of tickets also suffered loss in term of time and Internet connection.
Therefore, I don not find such of an action by a statute like Indian Railway or IRCTC is reasonable in anyway but an arbitrary and unreasonable one. Such action violates my Fundamental Rights too.
Is there anyone here who can enlighten me REASONABLY that my said interpretation about Indian Railway is incorrect?

-----------------------
Your reply has nothing to do with my issue, my issus is clear, that I am entitled to avail the reservation from Dehradun reasonably. If this providing the reservation from Dehradun is not acceptable by IRCTC or Railway then they SOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN a higher amount for the ticket between Dehradun and Howrah rather they should have EXACTLY taken lesser money for the boarding station Haridwar to Howrah.

Reply to the question, "If he was denied a berth, how cud he cancel his ticket, ..." that one needs to see my issues about the higher charge between Dehradun to Howrah while I have desired to board from Haridwar.
How, reservation can not be provided to a person from Haridwar who paid higher ticket/reservation charge from Dehradun while reservation is easily available from Dehradun?
Why
...
more...
not receiving a higher charge was denied by IRCTC or Railway right then the passenger wanted to board from Haridwar?
These are indeed unreasonable act and violates fundamental rights, One needs to understand what fundamental rights is versus rules or laws of any statue.
Thanks

2)This is the booking status of ur ticket.
Status Last Updated on: Sat Nov 20, 2010 (01:19AM) IST
Date of Journey: Wed Dec 01 Class: Sleeper

Passenger 2: Can/Mod (Booking Status: W/L 26, RLGN)
Passenger 3: Can/Mod (Booking Status: W/L 27, RLGN)
Chart NOT Prepared
3) There isn't much diff. in fare in SL (Dehradun-Howrah & Haridwar-Howrah)
4) Clearly the ticket was in RLGN Quota, much diff from GNWL. IRCTC Websites has many faults, perhaps wat has happened with u, is one of them. Previously when one did not have the option to choose LB while booking, he had to accept watever seat was allotted to him. Now if LB seats are not available(if one opts for it), then the system asks for re-confirmation. If you accept, it books. If you don't, transaction fails and the entire money is refunded to you.
In your case, booking was done first. However, since ur boarding station was diff, and u had searched for trains from the origin station (under gnwl quota), the system isnt designed to re-check for the availability status under the revised quota (once the boarding point is changed). After the amount was debited, the system pointed the error (possibly no resv. was allowed further in the RLGN Quota), and hence you were placed in the WL Category (denied of berth).
If you feel, you need to raise your voice, kindly send an email to care@irctc.co.in and let us know once you get any response.
Regards.

Sir,

avail the journey, of such confirmed ticket, or (ii b) fails to board on the train for any reason then he/she can either file a TDR (if the e-ticket is purchased online) by himself or through the agent from where he has purchased the ticket from, stating the reason of his inability to avail the service, thereafter, upon verification a portion of the amount may be refunded to the account from there money for purchasing said ticket has been debited.
2. A wait listed ticket (WL) IF NOT GETS CONFIRMED (right after the chart is prepared):-
You don't need to worry or to take any action....
i. the amount of the un-confirmed (WL) e-ticket/s will automatically be refunded to the debit account from where the e-ticket was purchased by the railways but railways is not responsible for any other service related charges levied.
