I have found that in 12677 from CBE to ERS AC Chair car tickets are in PQWL. Whatever be the PQWL number it gets confirmed. Sometimes after getting into the train I find more than 50% seats are vacant though my ticket was PQWL. I feel this may be due to a large number of passengers travel from SBC to CBE and hence the seats from CBE are vacant. If this is so while charting, does all the seats getting vacant at CBE are allotted to PQWL passengers from CBE. Kindly clarify.

Konkan Railway confident of securing approval for its expansion projects
Notwithstanding the change at the top in the Railway Ministry, the Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd. (KRCL) is hopeful of the new Railway Minister conceding to its long-pending demand — including Mangaluru

region under its jurisdiction.It is also confident that the Minister would give the green signal for its expansion projects — doubling and electrifying the 742-km route network.The expectations of KRCL as well as the people in coastal Karnataka were high when D.V. Sadananda Gowda was appointed the Railway Minister in the NDA government since he hailed from the region and was at the forefront of the agitation to get justice for Mangaluru region.His abrupt shifting from the Ministry, however, is not considered as a setback to the demand as the new Minister — Suresh Prabhu — too hails from the Konkan region and is aware of the struggle, sources in the KRCL told The Hindu. KRCL’s Chairman and Managing Director B.P. Tayal has already met Mr. Prabhu, but it was a courtesy meeting on the latter assuming the office, sources said.However, its demands are still alive on the Railway Board’s table and KRCL would make every effort to take them to the logical end.
The corporation claims that Mangaluru region should have been under KRCL as envisaged in the detailed project report prepared for its formation in 1989.
It says the special purpose vehicle (KRCL) formed for constructing the railway line between Roha in Maharashtra and Thokur in Karnataka and operating trains was found feasible only after taking into account the railway network in Mangaluru region.
However, the region, comprising Mangalore Central passenger coaching terminal, Old Port Goods Shed, Mangalore Junction (Kankanady) and Panambur (New Mangalore Port), was kept out of KRCL when it was formed in 1995.
If Mangaluru region is brought under KRCL, its revenues would increase due to the Port.
The increased revenue thus generated could be ploughed back to improve the infrastructure — doubling and electrifying the line — which is almost saturated, KRCL says.

Doubling and electrification of KR must be the first priority rather than MAQ to be included in KR. With such difficult terrain even if the doubling is sanctioned it will take a decade to complete

Recently asked me question related to booking of unreserved ticket (for minors/children). I realised I can't find a way to book ticket for a child (together with, let's say, her parents) on irctc site where parent don't want to take reservation for the child. For instance, if child is just 6 yr old and parent decide, she can share berth with her mother, they still have to buy reservation for child if trying to book online. Is my observation true? Or are we supposed to buy such tickets from station itself??

Strictly if you buy an unreserved ticket for a child from counter, the child cannot travel with you in the reserved compartment of any class. There is no question of your adjusting

I need a clarification. From Pune to Chennai for all trains berths are allotted on Pooled Quota but for Senior Citizen it is allotted on General. Hence if I want to book on 28th December 2014 as a Senior Citizen for 12063 I am able to book today but a Mumbai passenger cannot book. So if a Mumbai passenger wants to book as senior citizen tomorrow he/she will not get even at 0800hrs if the Pune passengers had already used up the senior citizen quota. Is this not unfair.

Bookings will open for all the stations enroute 60 days prior to the date of departure of the train from its originating station. Hence pax from Mumbai or Pune will be able to book at the same time.

You might be talking about train 12163. It arrives at PUNE after midnight. Hence the train that departs Mumbai on 27th december, arrives Pune on 28th December.
So booking is allowed from Mumbai for 27th December and from Pune for 28th December.
