Hi all! I want some clarifications regarding Wait list quotas since I don't have any wait listed ticket booking experience. It would be really helpful to me if you answer in a clear and simple manner for the following queries. Thanks in advance. My queries are :
1)What is a Waitlist?
2)What does PQWL mean?
3)What does GNWL 100/WL 50 mean ?
does PQWL 100/WL 50 mean ?
5)What does GNWL/Available mean ?
6)What does PQWL/Available mean ?
7)What is RAC ?
8)What does RAC 25/RAC 10 mean ?
9)What does GNWL 50/ RAC 25 mean ?
10)What does REGRET mean ?
11)What does REGRET/WL 1 mean ?
12)What does RLWL 50 / WL 25 mean?

I understand a bit now. So by your above explanation, if I book a ticket in PQWL quota from any intermediate station and if it is PQWL 51 and because of 50 cancellations, my PQWL will become PQWL 1. And then again if some people cancel their tickets my ticket will be confirmed. Am I correct?

    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...
