This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Hmm, imho that's a different train and a different waiting list? – RoflcoptrException Oct 20 '16 at 8:34
  • What sort of a quota do you have on your ticket? If you go to the offical PNR checking page and enter your PNR, it will also indicate the booking quota (like GNWL, PQWL, RLWL) – RedBaron Oct 20 '16 at 8:35

    Anyways I am flagging this question as "opinion based" because no one can predict with certainity if a ticket with Indian railways will be confirmed or not. OP is encouraged to look at resources like this site where the PNR can be posted and users can predict the final status. – RedBaron Oct 20 '16 at 8:38
  • Agree with RedBaron and that's the intention of my dupe-flag @RoflcoptrException! A Q&A for any train and any waitlist status is not helpful for other users, what helps is a post that explains the waitlist system and how to check (see comment above). Also this is as unanswerable as "will I get the visa"-Qs, thus my -1 – mts Oct 20 '16 at 8:50
