    Charting Status
    Indian Railways prepare a final charting status four hours before departure time from the station. The chart is mentioned with the final list of passengers who are going to board the train with their allotted berth. If the chart is prepared and your booking status gets stuck in waiting, it means you are not allotted a confirm berth for journey in that particular train. There are many trains that offer you to travel with your waiting booking status but you will not be allotted any berth, you are just allowed to board the train to reach the destination. This could be happen only when you have a PRS counter reservation ticket. Passengers with e-tickets are not allowed to board the train in waiting. E-Tickets automatically get cancelled when booking does not get confirmed, but to cancel your counter ticket, you have to rush to the station. It is advised to check your PNR status till 30 minutes of departure of the train. There’re chances of ticket confirmation after adjusting quota seats.

The side lower berth in every compartment is specially designed for travelers having RAC status.

    Note: When current status shows in CNF, it means booking is confirmed.
