Meanwhile, While you may not get confirmed berths each time you book a train ticket, you can find out if your ticket stands a chance of being confirmed thanks to a new predictive service on the IRCTC website. IRCTC will let Indian Railways passengers know the probability of confirmation of wait-listed tickets based on a new algorithm developed by the Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS).
IRCTC’s next-generation e-ticketing website has been revamped (earlier) and now has one of the coolest features for waitlisted and RAC ticket holders!
