The Railway Board on Wednesday issued an order introducing the provision of waiting list not only in its present operational special trains but also for all its forthcoming services.
This has come into effect for tickets booked from today for journeys starting May 22.
Waitlisted tickets have been issued from today, i.e., 15th May. But only those with confirmed status, until the chart is prepared, will be allowed to travel.
The railways has, however, capped the waiting list on these trains — up to 100 for AC 3 Tier, 50 for AC 2 Tier, 200 for Sleeper Class, 100 for Chair Cars and 20 each for First AC and Executive Class.
According to sources, there will be a full refund if a passenger is not allowed to board the train due to COVID-19 symptoms.
