I noticed that there are no availability from YPR to MAO though there are seats available from MAS to MAO. I believe this is due to quota system but then I also believe this was removed once computerized bookings started. Any enlightenment from veterans??

It was ,is and always will be there my friend.If at all anything has happened is a a little practical and logical sense implied in quota distribution in recent years.
Book from a station which has GNWL qota and change the boarding point and board from your desired station.

Yes this is due to less quota available for YPR/KJM etc...If you wish to get tickets under GNWL book from Jolarpettai Jn(JTJ) and opt for baording point as KJM/YPR so chacnes of you getting tickets will be more at the cost few more bucks...You can do this online on IRCTC itself.

The quota system is still in place, in the absence of which there is a possibility of short distance passengers grabbing majority of tickets and train running, for major part of the route, empty.

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
