IRCTC authorities are in a plan to solve the problem. They are about to provide an alternate berth to every waiting list passenger within another train according to the report from The Times of India
Isn't it great if we get an alternate birth while all we are wishing to get just an confirmed ticket no matter whether it is RAC or not.
Anil kumar Saxena, Additional director general has stated that "There are so many trains running between same stations, we are planning to provide an confirm ticket to every passenger who is listed in waiting list"
This is the biggest and first effort from IRCTC to reduce the hassle of customer while booking the ticket.
This process of idea is still in initial stages and we will come up with more information as soon as we get it.
