We book ticket from A to B, where A & B are major stations with boarding at C (small station).
Which case has chances of more confirmations of WL/RAC tickets- journey A to B or journey C to B.

It's always better to get into RAC and then try to garner a berth, either at chart or on board than on a sticky wicket where one can't board the train at all.

Always A to B has better chances..Also if you change Boarding point to C with booking point as A, same quota of A will carry over to C, so chances of conformation is same as A.

Never trust this train to be on time. On a average it is late minimum 2-3 hours.

This info is already available in the Train page. (screenshot).
In order to make this tip useful, you may provide other info. For example, in your experience,
1. Why is it getting late?
Is there a specific station/signal, where it halts a long time?
3. Is it generally slow throughout the journey (low priority)?
4. Do you have any other train recommendation for this route?

It is one of the busiest as well as worst maintained stations I have ever seen. Waiting rooms are infested with big rats, cockroaches and mosquitoes. Sanitation facility is poor and catering service sub-standard.
