Waiting Ticket is now no more a valid document to entitle a passenger to undertake journey in the train for which that ticket was purchased. This arrangement has been made to reduce the loss being incurred by the Indian Railways as some passengers had been using the waiting tickets for journey and after completing the journey, they claim the refunds. With this provision, it has also been arranged that the waiting ticket holders may get refund within half hour before the train departs. Both the provisions have been made in interest of the Railways but can cause inconvenience to those genuine passengers who might have planned for the journey well in advance. At least, the railways can convert  the waiting tickets into general tickets or treat them as general tickets if they are not confirmed/cancelled within half hour before the departure of the train from the station the journey was intended to be started at. Or, alternatively, the waiting tickets be converted into the next higher class or premium grade if the seats/births are available for that upgraded class/category.
