What will happen if 2 out of 3 seats are confirmed and 1 seat is in Waitlist which is booked via IRCTC online?
I have booked these tickets via the IRCTC website:
Sl. No. Name Age Gender Status Coach Seat / Berth / WL No 1 Ravi 25 Female CNF S3 13 2 Rina 25 Female CNF S3 56 3 Ajay 25 Male WL 124
Since online what will happen if the last ticket is not confirmed, will all tickets be cancelled or only the last?
The answer by blvdeer is partially correct in that it confirms the rule, but does not answer your question. The answer to your question is that if there is even one passenger who has a confirmed reservation in a ticket all the passengers in the same ticket can board the train and shall be provided seats as and when they become available. Partially confirmed tickets will not be automatically dropped. This is as per the first paragraph of the answer provided by bvldeer
@JonathanReez In case of a long distance train with berths (sleeping bunk beds), the passenger can share berths with other passengers travelling with him. In case of chair cars, well he has to stand. Indian railways e-tickets are automatically cancelled in case of waitlisted passengers, so any such passenger found on train is deemed "ticket-less" and penalised. For partially confirmed e-tickets (as asked by OP) and paper tickets, they are actually allowed to board the train and are not penalised as ticket-less. Such passengers are provided seats as they become free (no-show etc.)
