well the total seats is more than x is indicativce of fact that at least x seats are available. it may be more than that. accurate figures are available if total seats available is refreshed between 00 30 hrs to 0800 hrs of 120 th day. if it is refreshed after that some seats may be booked for the 120th day...hence the total seats comes as ">x"

Hi, how can I check the total number of seats for a particular train. Checking between the terminal stations shows that seats are greater than x for a particular category but how can the exact number be figured out?

Yes. Quotas are allocated on starting points irrespective of where you de-board. Point is that those 8 seats can be booked an anyone traveling from Agra to anywhere.
Second: Dedicated quotas are allocated to only specific bigger stations. Like Delhi Agra Bhopal etc.
The rest intermediate ones share quota of preceding bigger station.

Hi Zahaib.
Please help me with a few questions:
1. Do we get to see on this website which train has which kind of coaches?
2. Do we have a list of all the trains in India excel sheet would be of great help?
You talked about the PNR history from this website to get to know how many travelled between specific extensive is this data?

1.It ain't specifically mentioned but i can tell you in the nutshell that only Bhopal Shatabdi and Chennai Rajdhani have LHB coaches as far as trains from Agra cantt are concerned.
While on Agra Fort only Jaipur Agra shatabdi has LHB.
Basically LHB is given to most of the Rajdhanis/Shatabdis and some express trains (for whom its mentioned somewhere in the train page)
Not that I'm aware of.
3. The PNR forum is not VERY extensive as far as your research is concerned. Only a few PNRs are posted and the number of entries IN NO WAY give any data about total number of tickets booked.

1. How to check how many seats are reserved under various quotas or atleast an idea about Tatkal quota seats
2. For a small station, quotas are clubbed with the major station before it or major station after it?
3. How to find out whether a particular station is considered a major station and quota for any station is its exclusive quota or
whether the station has been considered small and its quota is actually clubbed with a bigger station nearby.
