Auto Upgradation
1. Is exercised for those passengers only who have opted for upgradation while booking (complaints are there that it was done without exercising (226509) but it sure that the System had already fed into information of this option having been opted for) .
2. Is
applicable to all the issuing gateways - Counter, E or I.
3. Is applicable to all the status whether CNF, RAC or W/Listed before chart preparation (or at the time of issuance of original booking) and whether Tatkal or General.
4. A complete PNR is upgraded and not less than all passengers out of a PNR.
5. Next higher class is only to which GENERALLY upgraded (exceptions are there which have previosuly been reported at our site where next to next higher class was allotted). One can refer to the upgradation list of Yesvantpur-Howrah Duronto Express/12246 of 25.08.2011 where 41 passengers are upgraded. At Sr. No. 11, one can find that a passenger of 3AC has been upgraded to 1A (Blog Entry No. 226690).
6. Is automated on random logic & hence no preference can be set (earlier booked, Tatkal booked, initially confirmed or so).
7. There is no compulsion that Upgradation will be applied by IR for any train irrespective of some berths being carried vacant in a class.
8. There is no charge for Auto-upgradation and the passengers enjoy the upper class journey just free of cost though in upper class, there may be an additional costing in addition to empty haulage like bed rolls (when upgraded from SL to 3AC or so) and Pantry costing (like 2AC to 1AC in Rajdhani / Duronto or ACCH to ExCH in Shatabdi trains.
1. Sr.Citizens, Ladies who are prefering Lower Berths and are expecting (or know) that they are likely to get LBs, should not allow upgradation if they need LBs only.
2. Sleeper class passengers who do no like Air Conditioning, should not allow upgradation.
3. Beware that good allocation in the original class may become bad in the higher class (a reverse is also possible).
Fact sheet:
Attached is the upgraded Passenger List for 12956 (Jaipur – Mumbai Central via Sawaimadhopur – Ratlam – Vadodara) of 24.08.2011 which copy pasted for summary viewing and screen Shots pasted for original effect.
1. Upgradaing is only one class upward (though sometime back we had received notice from some members that it had been beyond one class up also).
2. Sr. no. 1, 8 etc. were waitlisted but have got upgraded.
3. Sr. no. 13, 15 etc. were under RAC but have got upgraded.
4. Sr. Nos. 2 to 5 were enjoying a good allotment of original berths (B-4> 17, 18, 19 & 20; 3rd cubical LB, MB, UB and LB) but on upgrading they have been bifurcated to A-1> 41, 42, 43 & 44; SL, SU, next cubical UB, opposite LB).
5. Sr. Nos. 25-26 and 37-38 had all Lower berths inside same cubicals (S-2> 1 & 4 and S-9>65 & 68 respectively) which seems to be for Sr. Citizens or Ladies (Just prsuming, pls.) but have been thrown away at SL and SU berths (B-5> 47 & 48 and B-5> 15 & 16 respectively; one side lower and one side upper each).
6. Sr. Nos. 45 & 46 have badly been treated. Enjoying berths 1 & 4 (both lower, same and first cubical) in S-8 are picked up and dropped off at both the upper berthe (19 & 22) in coach B-3.
