Can I change the boarding station ?

If you have booked e-ticket through IRCTC then you can change it to any station that falls between your source and destination station. This can be changed before 24 hours of the scheduled departure of the train. This is not applicable for i-tickets.Boarding point change is allowed only once. In case a passenger has changed the boarding point he will lose all the rights to board the train from the original boarding point.

Chart is prepared but my status still shows RAC, will I get a seat ?

RAC tickets means that you will get a berth that will be shared by a co-passenger. However, TTE of the train may allot you a complete seat if there are free available seats. Please note that, any further change in the PNR Status after chart preparation will not be available on RailYatri’s PNR Status online page.

I have Reserved or Confirmed Ticket but no Coach or Seat Number is given. What should I do?

If your ticket was originally waitlisted, but is now confirmed then you will be allocated a seat at the time of chart preparation. For e.g. if the PNR Status says something like 10WL/CNF, then your current status of the ticket is confirmed. In this case you will be allocated Coach & Seat once the chart is prepared for the Usually chart is prepared 4 hours prior to start of the train from the origin station of the train. So even if you are not boarding at the origin station, you may expect an update on the seat number 4 hours prior to the origin station.

How often should I check for PNR Status Updates ?

If you have a waitlisted train ticket, your waitlist number usually gets updated to lower waitlist or confirmed state when passengers with confirmed tickets cancel their tickets. This change is often real time, and thus you should be checking for updates more often on this page. Alternatively, you can install RailYatri App and get automatic notifications for PNR Status.
