How to Get an RAC Ticket

Name should not be empty

Most trains can be booked 91 days in advance, and some short distance trains (daytime trains) can only be booked 30 days in advance, there are a few trains with even shorter booking periods, but none on the main tourist routes. In case one delays in booking a train ticket, one has to follow certain procedures:

Process Flow:

When all the available seats/berths in an individual train/class are sold, the railways start selling RAC tickets (2A, 3A, FC & SL only). When all RAC tickets have been sold, then a waitlist begins to be prepared for all the classes in the train, and you are then sold a waitlisted ticket.

As people cancel tickets, an RAC/WL ticket will move closer to a confirmed berth. Also, when the final reservation chart is prepared, any unsold quota berths will be used to reduce the RAC/waitlist.
