New scheme: Confirmed ticket on next train for waitlisted passengers
At no extra cost, passengers booking online will be presented with a menu of alternate trains on same route if the train has waitlisted tickets.
Waitlisted passengers on two sectors of the Indian Railways will be able to get confirmed berths in the next train on the same route from Sunday, as per a new experiment the national transporter is trying out.
The Railways issued a statement Saturday saying the pilot project of a new scheme, named Vikalp, will be launched on the Delhi-Lucknow and Delhi-Jammu routes Sunday.
The idea is to accommodate waitlisted passengers into another train on the same route subject to availability.
