PQWL is bogus and it doesn't move at all. I booked my ticket in Lalbagh express from Katpadi to K.R. Puram, 10 days before. The status of PQWL at the time of booking is WL 50/51 and the same status is shown today also.
So, what I understood is PQWL is bogus. I don't understand this concept, why do you need PQWL? There should be only one GNWL? general wait list and should be served based of FOFS (first come first served basis).
This is really pathetic, indian railways needs to think of this and change the system as soon as possible.
what is the mean of PQWL, I am also facing the same problem. I had booked my online ticket on 12-12-2009 from Dadar to Patna(5645, Guwahati exp)one month ago still showing the same PQWL 3. so it will confirm or i cancel it, tell me any solution.
I am unable to understand whether PQWL is for helping public of small station or to use them for clearing waiting list of passengers of Metro stations. Only if this is the main concern of Government then PQWL is good.
First of tell me the full form of RLGN!
GNWL!---- And i am not able to understand that why these list not moving although you had booked ticket so much earlier...
Actully Government is forcing us to book the ticket from its Origin station and boarding you may do from whatever station!
Means Railway should be given full tkt money irrespective of your origin & Destination station

taking more money than actual charge - Indian Railway
this is about the demanding extra money by TTE in patna janshatabdi. in janshatabdi of any other route ticket is booked currently on demand. but in patna janshatabdi this is not possible and this lead TTE to take extra money. i faced this two times. they give receipt of Rs.30/- but charge Rs.60/-. this become general practice in this route. when i ask them why they are charging extra money they told lena hai to lo nahi to jao.
please do some action againt this curruption. which leads trouble to passengers.
Its a disgusting to take PQWL, even i dont understand the concept behind this. Why indian railway fooling we guys. We book ticket long time back, but still we got PQWL. There should be some action taken against them.

Regular and similar problem in rail ticket booking - IRCTC of Govt. of India
Whenever I try to book a railway ticket of Tatkal category or of general category for recent tickets (say, to book ticket after 1-3 days) I found that IRCTC booking service starts malfunctioning. After discussing with others I found that they had also the similar experience and they knew that there was something fishy in this booking events. Is not the repeated occurrence of the same event pointing to a nexus of touts and IRCTC?
I have booked my ticket on 10th of Nov last month and it WL 20 now I see the status is 16 PQWL and my date of journey is 23rd Dec, 2010 its almost 45days before but what is use of such booking where the status is not moving at from last 25 days,
I dont understand why this concept of making no usepassengers in indian railway! railway authorities requested to notice ...ASAP
i am cheated by indian railways - IRCTC Indian Railways
Subject: LESS REFUND OF MY CANCELLED TICKETS
I BOOKED 18 TICKETS FOR TRAVEL BETWEEN DEHRADUN AND DELHI ON 30/5/10. I HAD BOOKED THESE TICKETS BY CREDIT CARD AT HYDERABAD STATION. I HAD TO CANCEL 6 TICKETS AND WHEN I APPROACHED THE STN MASTER DEHRADUN FOR CANCELLATION ON 29/5 I WAS TOLD THAT IT CAN BE CANCELLED AT DELHI WHERE CREDIT CARD CANCELLATION IS AVAILABLE AND NOT AT DEHRADUN WHEREBY I WAS FORCED TO CANCEL ONLY AFTER THE JOURNEY IS PERFORMED AND I WAS ABLE TO GET ONLY 50 PER CENT OF THE FARE INSTEAD OF FULL FARE REFUND , I REQUEST YOU TO LOOK INTO THE MATTER AND DO JUSTICE.
MY PNR NO IS 263-2315297 AND 2303381974 AND THE CANCELLED TICKET NAMES ARE A ADITYa , A BHAVANI SHANKAR,A,ANITA AND T VISWANATH, T USHa SREE AND T.ABHISHEK.

It was on 25.8.2010, I boarded from Agra Cantt with two general Superfast ticket in 2723 A P Exp. in sleeper coach seeing empty coach assuming when TTE would come we will pay difference amt. as he was not seen outside at or near comprtment. Inside, first I have searched him nearby coaches but he was not avaialabe. Then we would wait sitting on empty seat but he would not come upto NDLS. At MTJ, a person in civil dress came to us asked ticket we show, he demanded Rs.-620/- saying I am from squaid checking, you have to pay penalty. I told him pl. take differences but he behaved very rudly and issued slip No.-090169. Sir, it is very unfare to take penalty while seats are availabe. First should ask differnce first then penalty if person is not paying and availing facilities.
I am also having the same problem as every where it is written some thing like PQWL quota is for intermediate stations. What is mean by intermediate stations and why there is a difference over here. I guess Pune is not an intermediate station and I have booked two tickets. Both are booked under PQWL quota and ticket is not yet confirmed. Before I use to get ticket from Pune as general wait list and now most of them got there ticket confirmed even WL 50. Why there is a difference between me and others having booked the tickets in same platform my ticket is booked under PQWL and others ticket as showing as general WL and it is got confirmed now.

to know about pqwl waiting list - railway `
Dear sir, i madereservation from miraj to itarsi, from date 05 May 2011. it is waiting PQWL 1 , But previuos tome i suffred from this PQWL waiting list i caould not confirm me waiting list, why, this time i am also hesitate about the same.
What is this nonsence before booking the e-ticket they are showing the WL and after the ticket is booked they give PQWL of which we are not aware of that means the ticket will not be confirmed in any circumstances and you have to pay the cancellation charges
A Pooled Quota Waiting List ('PQWL') is shared by several small stations in a particular region. E.g., Tiruppur, Salem, etc., share in the quota and wait list for some trains originating from Trivandrum or Mangalore. As another example, the 2723 Andhra Pradesh Exp. has three quotas, for Secunderabad - New Delhi, Secunderabad - nagpur, and Secunderabad - Bhopal. There is also a pooled quota for passengers travelling from Secunderabad to stations beyond Bhopal but short of Jhansi. If this quota is exhausted, a passenger is placed in the pooled quota waiting list. Pooled Quotas normally operate only from the originating station of a route, and there is only one Pooled Quota for the entire run. The Pooled Quota is intended to be utilized by passengers travelling from the originating station to a station short of the terminating station, or from an intermediate station to the terminating station, or between two intermediate stations. Such remote location quotas are also provided when there is a very strong demand for the train in question, because of which, without such additional quotas, all seats or berths might be fully consumed by passengers from the originating station leaving nothing available for those wishing to travel from intermediate points. Vacant Pooled Quota berths are automatically tapped by the PRS for booking end-to-end passengers. Passengers in the Pooled Quota Waiting List are cleared against the vacancies in the earmarked Pooled Quota only, or against General Quota vacancies available at the time of charting.So no Cheating...change the typical Indian attitude...say I am the most intelligent and others all are fools.
