Dear Admins, NTES schedule for Train #12723 for Nagpur Jn. (NGP) shows Arrival: 15:40 Hrs and Departure: 15:50 Hrs. But, as per the Time-Table at, /train/timetable/71/834/664 the Arrival is shown as: 15:45 Hrs and Departure: 15:55 Hrs. Kindly clarify. Thanks.

Senior members, the current 'Accommodation Availability Enquiry' Status for Sleeper Class, for Train # 22646 Ahilyanagari Express on 3rd April, 2016, from Boarding Stn. Nagpur Jn. (NGP) and reservation up to Indore Jn. (INDB) is RLWL74. Please let me know the chances of a RLWL74 moving into RAC (if not getting confirmed). If the chances are bright, I shall go ahead and make a booking (i.e., I haven't made the booking/reservation yet). Thanks.

Surprising to see this train having different Tatkal quota for NGP may be save your day :)

The PNR No. is: 4118530584. I was very lucky to get it (before the quota ran out!)! Thanks, sir, for your wishes.

Sorry, I don't get the first part of your reply. Expecting your kind clarification. Nevertheless, happy that you got CK. Even if you had booked that RLWL, I still stand by my view that it would have got confirmed.

Re# 1780572-22            Tags   Past Edits
Let me clarify, sir... When I had posted my query on March 26, the RLWL74 referred to in the post implied the then current 'Accommodation Availability Enquiry' status at that point of time of posting my query. I hadn't booked any WL (i.e., RLWL) ticket in the first place. The RLWL was the 'Ticket Availabilty' status. So, as I wasn't sure about the probability of this RLWL getting confirmed (or, moving into RAC at least), I hadn't gone ahead and purchased the RLWL ticket. Had I booked this RLWL74 current status ticket, I'd have posted the query under the PNR category. On the day the Tatkal booking opened, I was fortunate enough to get the confirmed Tatkal e-ticket (with PNR No.: 4118530584) - the entire Tatkal Quota on that day was gone in under 5 minutes after the online booking opened at 11 AM. I have edited the original post just...
now to prevent any future confusion for other members who may look up the post. Sincere apologies for the confusion created. Thanks and regards.

The ticket's current status is CNF/A2/8/NC for Train # 12474 Telangana Express (Boarding point: Bhopal Jn., and Reservation upto: Secunderabad Jn.) for scheduled departure @ 03:30 Hrs on 20th November. What is meant by 'NC' here? A few hours ago, the current status showed up as CNF/A2/8/UB; but this has since changed to CNF/A2/8/NC! This is some 4 hours before departure (# 12474 scheduled departure being @ 03:30 Hrs from Bhopal Jn.) on 20th November. Please advise. Thanks.

Re# 1655100-3            Tags   Past Edits
Thanks, Vinay. But, 'No Choice' in what sense or context?! For option/choice of berth? Does this mean a different berth had been allotted than what was requested (i.e., Lower Berth having been requested) at the time of booking? Even then, why did the status change from CNF/A2/8/UB to CNF/A2/8/NC (the berth number remains the same, i.e., berth #8. So, why change/replace the 'UB' with the 'NC'? In that case, it could have been mentioned earlier itself as CNF/A2/8/UB/NC. Why change it now?

Re# 1655100-4            Tags   Past Edits
One explanation I found online - "When railway ticket is booked you must have noticed your booking status as CNF/D1/100/NC. CNF means confirmed and NC means ‘No Choice’. In case you have selected seat preference like window seat etc. and that seat is not available then it is indicated as NC in ticket and another available seat is allotted." click here
Another short explanation - "NC Means….No Concession….Confirmed by IRCTC customer care" click here

Frankly, neither seems very logical since if berth number is given, you already know whether your choice was given or not. And similarly what is the point of mentioning No Concession, I dont understand.
