ok so we even after the chart is prepared, & still all the passengers are in waiting list - their name wud be dropped from the chart & refund of fare shall be credited to the account from which booking transaction took place after deducting clerkage. so full fare of the ticket is given minus the clerkage charge... rite.. they wud take only Rs 50 / 60 er passenger rite...???
the waiting list status for the people i booked is above 100.. so there's very rare chance to get confirmed...

Advance Reservation Period for Booking Reserved Train Tickets Reduced to 60 Days from Existing 120 Days from 1st May 2013
The Ministry of Railways has decided that the Advance Reservation Period (ARP) for booking reserved train tickets will be reduced from existing 120 days to 60 days (excluding the date of journey) w.e.f. 1st May 2013. The details are as below:-
I. With effect from 01.05.2013, the ARP will be of 60 days (excluding the day of journey) and booking will be done accordingly. However, all the bookings done upto 30.4.2013 under
the ARP of 120 days will remain intact.
II. Cancellation of the booking made beyond the ARP of 60 days will, however, be permitted.
III. There will be no change in the case of certain day time express trains like Taj Express, Gomti Express etc. where lower time limits for advance reservations are at present in force.
IV. There will also be no change in the case of limit of 360 days for foreign tourists.
