For People looking to travel from Pune/Mumabi to Bangalore, book ticket to Hosur (HSRA) and you may pay for the extension from to Bangalore (SBC) by approaching the TT before you reach Hosur(HSRA). This will cost you negligibly more but will provide PNRs in general quota which gets cleared easily

He is not talking anything about the quotas or the probability of confirmation. He is asking why there is a need to go to tte for extension when you book a ticket till HSRA which comes after SBC.

These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
