- Indian Railways-Online Reservation Rules 2 answers
What are the railway reservation rules under the below noted circumstances?
I have purchased a waiting list ticket in 3rd class A/C and did not confirm it before the journey. Can I make a valid journey and board in the 3rd AC compartment with the waiting list ticket?
Also, can I travel in Sleeper Class in a reserved compartment if I only have a general ticket without reservation? I am ready to pay the reservation cost to the TTE (Travelling Ticket Examiner) even if no seat could be allotted by him.
