Now passengers desiring to travel in trains can get to know about the possibility of wait listed tickets getting confirmed. A tool has been developed to predict the probability of waitlisted ticket getting confirmed at the time of booking as well as during Passenger Name Record (PNR) enquiry of waitlisted ticket.
It predicts the probability of waitlist status for General Quota. The tool considers the high waitlist scenario of Holiday rush. It displays the trend of last waitlist ticket got confirmed for the same journey during previous year. Prediction of dynamic probability is based on current status.
Currently this feature is integrated with Indian Railway Catering & Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) website only. In IRCTC website this feature is operational from 13 June.
When the user is doing the booking transaction, and if the status of accommodation availability of the input journey is waitlisted, then the user can check the probability of confirmation.
This facility is not available without login. Further, prediction is based on past trend analysis and gives fairly good probability of right waitlist prediction.
