E- Tickets for Trains in India

Hi,

I have booked all the trains i need to travel in India through web(thanx to Clear trip). But all those tickets are in witing list 10 or under 10. I am getting bit worried whther those will not going to get to RAC or Booked status.

Can i pls know whether there is a chance to get the tickets confirmed or at least RAC..?. I booked 2AC class.

Also, when i take the e-ticket Printouts, the status is 'WaitList', i am travelling to India end of this week and i might not able to get new print outs. Would this be a problem for me, eventhough, the PNR status changes to RAC or Booked(before the tarin date), as my printouts show 'WaitList'...?

anybody who has experinced pls reply..

I visited India, and of course my tickets got confirmed, about 4 hours before the train.And yes i can use the old print out, only thing that i should know is my coach numbers and seat numbers. BUT, Beware who ever goes to India, The train schedules are suck, they always get delayed, some trains got delayed even by 18 hours and unfotunately some got even cancelled. SO BE aware, it is one of the living hells in the world ... :P

To Arpit "You should try ticekts in Tatkal Quota or Foreigner Quota"

There is no Foreigner Quota available, when booking trains online...
