Thank you for updating on RAC not allowed in 2S.
This is correct logic, that it is either confirmed or WL.
RAC means sharing seat:(( in 2S will be punishment:)))

the 2s w/l ticket is also a general ticket itself if we want to travel in iind class. but in case of an e-ticket it will automatically cancel and you need to purchase a fresh ticket.

From Perumkolam Hariharan

As part of a study on the impact of Konkan Railway on Industrial Development, I was going through a detailed report on the Konkan Railway Project which came as a supplement with The Eco. Times, Madras dtd. 3rd. Octber, 1994. It then occured to me that there is an interesting issue which many of our railway fans / users might not have observed.
The actual railway project alignment connecting Roha and Mangalore is 760 kms., whereas in the Time Table the distance is inflated, viz. 1060 kms from Roha to Mangalore.
Obviously, this enhanced distance is for the computation of the fare, viz., chargeable kms. Even years back, for Hill railways, the Railway used to maintain two types of distances, -- Actual distances and Chargeable distances. Even in the
Southern Railway Tme Table, of April, 1968 for the Mettupalaiyam-- Ootacamund section, both the distances are indicated in the timing section, Actual kms. 46 kms./ Chargeable kms. 118 kms. Apparently this practice has been discontinued for quite sometime now.
As a holder of the KRCL 10 year bonds in the '90s, I used to get a lot of updates from KRCL. Their stated objective was to reduce the distance from Bombay to Mangalore to 914 kms.
Because of project slippage and cost overruns, KRC obviously decided to keep a higher fare to generate higher revenues and eventually increase its Return On INvestment. (ROI). I think nobody would complain about this. But there could have been more transparency by indicating both the actual as well as chargeable kms.
Considering the strategic benefits of the project, users would only be happy to pay more for substantial tangible user benefits.
The problem is, this type of presentation would give an inflated average speed of the train which iis an illusion and quite misleading.
Even simple comparisons can bring out this factor. The Time Table indicates a distance of 81 kms from Mangalore Central to Udipi. The track virtually runs parallel to the National Highway. By road the distance from Mangalore to Udipi is about 64 kms!

The Udupi Railway Yatri Sangha would stage a Rail Roko agitation on
February 15 to press for the extension of the Bangalore-Mangalore train upto Karwar,
informed RL Dayas, President of the Udupi Railway Yatri Sangha.
Speaking to reporters here, he said all trains that arrive at Udupi Railway station on
15 from 9 am to 12 noon would be blocked.
He further said the Sangha had realized the ploy of the then union minister of state for
Railways E Ahmed in the extension of the Mangalore-Bangalore train to Kannur instead
of Karwar.
He said the information secured by the Sangha through RTI regarding the expenses and
revenue earned by the train during its Mangalore-Kannur journey, was shocking and
added the information was that the Railways was incurring a loss of Rs 2 lakhs.
Even the proposal of the railways to split the train number 16517 into 10+7 bogies,
when it reached Mangalore and send ten bogies to Karwar and seven to Kannur, did not
elicit any favourable response from the railway minister or the local MP at the Indian
Railway Time Table meeting held at Pune in January, he said adding this was a betrayal
to the people of DK, Udupi and Karwar districts.
Damodar Aithal of Udupi Consumers’ Forum, Lidwin Pinto, K Ramachandra Acharya of
Railway Yatri Sangha and others were present on the occasion.
