I have booked 6 tickets in Train # 12779 Goa Express from VSG (Vasco, Goa) to Pune in Sleeper 3 Tier Coach, on 12-Apr-2014.
At the time of booking only 5 seats were available, so I proceed to book, but the 6th passanger was alloted W/L 69. How this is possible ? When 5 seats are available, then W/L should be 1 or better RAC should be 1.
If there was already 68 W/L then how 5 seats were available ?. Now after 50days
also the status is W/L 56.
What are the chances of confirmation of 1 passenger ( Date of Journet 2-May)

I tried to understand, but it is confusing. In short how can I find out the current position from VSG to Pune. As per W/L the status is 56. But definately there have been atleast one cancellation from VSG to Pune in 50 days.

It must be PQWL ..and it means that the quota of many stations is pooled into a single WL number VSG to LONDA , VSG to Belgaum , vsg to Pune will have same WL in sequence even though quota of seats may be different for each of the for ex : quota of seats from VSG to Londa is 10 and vsg to pune is 50 as soon as the 10 seats of londa gets filled PQWL 1 starts while seats to pune at that moment may still be available like in your case ..but the PQWL will keep on increasing if people keep booking in the vsg - londa section ..say suppose now the PQWL increased to PQWL 69 and now vsg - pune availability came down to 5 and you booked 6 tickets , so vsg - pune quota 5 seats were given to you...
and now the PQWL for pune also started but it will start from PQWL 69 and not PQWL 1 since the WL quota is pooled between different stations...hope its clear !!!

Gender change not possible.
Please book fresh if possible or explain it as human error to TTE as genuine passenger having valid ID.

What is the eligibility to book ticket under "YUVA" quota.
In itctc web site there is no provision to book ticket under yuva quota ?

Re# 154960-1            Tags   Past Edits
persons between 15 to 45 -unemployed and having registered his/her name in the Employment Exchange or having NREGS certificate are eligible for YUVA quota fares. The proof of Emp. Exchange REgn. No/NREG certificate has to be shown at the counter while booking ticket in Yuva quota. so yuva quota tkts cant be bookd thru irctc.
but you can book normal tickets thru irctc without concession in an Yuva train.

I want to book ticket in Delhi-Howrah Yuva Train (T.No. 12250) on 8-May.
In General category there is waiting List & further booking is stopped (Regret) but in YUVA category there are more than 500 Seats vacant. How can I book ticket in such situation ?

not many yuva quota seats are booked and hence all remaining seats unbooked under this quota is released to general quota (i.e. full money paying passengers).
if you are eligible for yuva quota, go to the nearest passenger reservation centre with documentary proofs and book a ticket. else, you can book a normal ticket without getting the quota fare. Quota fares are cheaper - 299 /399 whereas normal fares are more.
