This question already has an answer here:
I've booked a ticket to Belgaum for today but it shows
Does that mean I'm on a waiting list? Should I cancel the ticket or go to railway station and check?
WL/44 means your ticket is not yet confirmed and 1 hour before from train strats you have to cancel the ticket. thats depends on your emergency and by the same time if you can able to get other train or bus its better to cancel that ticket.
