Scheme for upgradation of waiting list passengers extended to cover sitting accommodation also
With a view to optimize the utilization of available accommodation in a train, the scheme of upgrading full fare paying waiting list passengers to next higher class against the available vacant accommodation is in force o­n Indian Railways from the year 2006. The scheme was meant o­nly for those Mails / Express trains which are having sleeping accommodation.
Indian Railways has now, further introduced this scheme of upgrading waiting list passengers to
next higher class to all Mail / Express trains including those having o­nly sitting accommodation.
Upgradation in such trains will be restricted from sitting accommodation to sitting accommodation i.e., from reserved Second Class to AC Chair Car or from AC Chair Car to Executive class.

no one is supposed to pay a penny when upgraded to the next higher class by the railways. when we approach ourselves to the TTE regarding upgrades, we have to pay the difference in fares.

But isn't it illogical! Meaning say I m travelling in 3ac paying full fare . And an upgraded passenger from sl wl is given 3ac for sl fare? I ve practically not experienced it. So seems strange.

This is not a regular case and also instead of leaving it vacant they are utilising it.

By upgrading a SL traveler to AC, Railway is using that waitlisted traveler's money also which 'll not get SL seat if the original SL one is not upgraded to AC. This Ac seat was going to be vacant so in a sense, some earning is arranged from this AC seat.
