IRCTC – the online ticketing arm of the Indian Railways – enables users to book train tickets online through its website, irctc.co.in, as well as mobile application. Called “CNF Probability”, the feature enables individuals to view the chances of confirmation or reservation against cancellation (RAC) of wait-listed tickets while making bookings for train tickets through IRCTC.
How to check the chances of getting confirmation on a waitlisted or RAC booking through Indian Railways’ e-ticketing arm, IRCTC:
For checking the chances of confirmation of a train ticket, a registered user is required to log in to the IRCTC website or mobile application. The user may proceed by selecting the train, class, date of journey and other details.
On the next page, the “CNF Probability” tab appears when the user clicks on the “check availability and fare” option against a selected train.
The IRCTC portal directs the user to another page, which displays information on the availability status of a particular train. The user can find the CNF Probability option under the availability section.
By clicking on it, the individual can know the chances of getting a confirmation or reservation against cancellation (RAC) for the selected train for that particular day of travel.
Every day, over two crore passengers carried by Indian Railways, and nearly 13 lakh tickets are booked through the IRCTC, according to Indian Railways.
