These days Indian Railways issuing very long list of wait listed e-tickets even in tatkal quota and very low percentage of e-tickets gets confirmed. I have noticed wait listed tatkal e-ticket up to WL-100 while WL-30 not being confirmed. I wonder, whether it is being done for extra earning by reservation/cancellation charges.
In my opinion, Indian railways should following some statistical method to book wait listed e-ticket in such a way that ticket may get confirmed or railways should put some measure to accommodate the wait listed passengers. Otherwise railways should not issue wait listed e-ticket if changes of getting confirmed is low, so that passenger would be able to make some alternative arrangement of the journey.

How do you expect the railways to read passenger's mind as to why and when they will cancel their tkts? Its all approximation values. One day 100 may also clear another day 40 will remain in WL.
If railways decide to accommodate waitlisted passengers the same people will blame them for doing so.

Should issue WL tickets with a confirmation limit like upto 70 like that and in tatkal WL tickets should not be issued.

actually there is no need WL for tatkal quota.....just for earning money.....and IR should implement one rule....max 18coaches must be for each train(with all classes) with general quota....and if there is huge demand then they have to add extra coaches allotting for tatkal quota(ac, non-ac)

I with my wife and small kid, booked ticket in NZM-MAS Duranto (2AC) with lower berth preferences but didn't get.
Is any one has idea about possibility of interchangeability of seats during journey with help of TTE or Passengers?
