Railways announced this big announcement regarding waiting list rules, tickets will be available easily
Keeping in mind the Corona epidemic, at present the Railways has completely stopped the waiting ticket system in trains. In such a situation, if you do not have a confirmed ticket, then you cannot travel in the train. At the same time, railway is also continuously working on how to reduce the waiting list in trains. Meanwhile, the railway has given big information to the passengers about the waiting list (waiting list) tickets. In the coming time it will be easy to get tickets through this system.
Railways gave this information
Railways said that many reports in the media said that there will be no waiting list from 2024 or confirmed tickets will be available by 2024. This is not entirely correct. Indian Railways made it clear that efforts are being made to increase the capacity of trains to provide seats according to the demand in trains. This will reduce the chances of passengers coming on the waiting list.
This is why the waiting list is made
From the railway side it was said that the waiting list is such a system which always remains. When the demand made by passengers in a train exceeds the number of berths or available seats, a waiting list is made. This provision is not being terminated. A ‘waiting list’ is a system that acts as a buffer to reduce demand and availability fluctuations.
It was easy to get a confirmed ticket
Indian Railways decided to run a clone train shortly before to provide confirmed tickets to railway passengers, which was quite successful. According to the Railway Ministry, this experiment done on behalf of the railways in the coronary period was quite useful and people also got a lot of help from it. According to the chairman of the Railway Board, the use of the clone train has been successful so far and based on this, it has been decided that the clone train will continue to run even after the coronary period.
