I wasn't aware that IR is going to stop selling wait listed tickets from 1st July.
Is it another whimsical decision and what could be the benefits to IR? It seems to cut off a cancellation revenue stream for them.

It's a part of RM Mr. Prabhu's 2020 vision to match the demand & supply of ticketing in Indian Railways. We will have to wait & watch how this plan is implemented.

I presume this is only for Subidha trains and not for other train types. Could you please confirm?

CDG - query on Retiring room.
On IRCTC site, it shows CDG retiring room is available for booking online. Last Oct'15, we had tried booking and it said some work in progress. When passing through CDG we found, there was renovation in progress.
Now, I can not confirm if at present the retiring rooms are available for online booking. I would request help if anyone passing through CDG can confirm this. Alternately, if you have a ticket FROM or TO CDG, you can try booking retiring room from IRCTC site and let me
know if it showed any availability or some error. You need to just try booking it to see the availability, and for that a valid PNR number is required (which I do not have at present).
Many thanks in advance!

I know about it's safety. Thing is that the hotels are pretty expensive, so I am thinking of booking a retiring room - but it was not available till Oct'15 fo renovation. Hence my question above. Do you know for sure that as of now, Chandigarh station retiring rooms are already open for booking after renovation that was in progress?

Thanks for the input. When you said you noticed 2 retiring rooms, do you mean you noticed that through IRCTC website?

Hello All,
We will be boarding 12314 SDAH Raj from CNB (Kanpur) at 21:20. We are not sure if we will be served dinner in train. Any ideas?
Please note that initially our ticket was NDLS-SDAH, we changed the boarding point to CNB by applying to Chief Reservation Supervisor, SDAH.

Hello All:
I have a confirmed Shatabdi ticket for 2 months from now, and I was trying to book Chandigarh retiring room online against that PNR. That's because I will come to CDG from a nearby location pretty late on the previous day and need to catch Shatabdi at 6:53 AM next day, so thought retiring room would be a good idea. However, IRCTC site shows that location is under maintenance - which makes me assume that some renovation work is in progress and no RR booking is being given. Can anyone confirm if that is the case, and if so, if there is any news as to when it is expected to be completed?
