What is RLWL, RSWL, RQWL, RLGN on railway ticket

  • GNWL: General Waiting List (GNWL) waitlisted tickets are issued  when the passenger begins his/her journey at the originating station of a  route or stations close to the originating station. This is most common  type of waiting list and has got the highest chances of confirmation.
  • RLWL: Remote Location Waiting List (RLWL) means ticket is issued  for intermediate stations (between the originating and terminating  stations) because usually these are the most important towns or cities  on that particular route. This type of tickets will be given a separate  priority and confirmations will depend on the cancellations of a  destination confirmed ticket. For this type of ticket there are less  chances of confirmation.
  • PQWL: A Pooled Quota Waiting List (PQWL) is shared by several  small stations. 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 generally allotted for 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.
  • RLGN: Remote Location General Waiting List (RLGN) is issued when a  user books a ticket where WL quota is RLWL. This means after ticket  booking RLWL gets named as RLGN.
  • RSWL: Roadside Station Waiting List (RSWL) is allotted when  berths or seats are booked by the originating station for journeys up to  the road-side station and distance restrictions may not apply. This  waiting list has also very less chances of confirmation.
  • RQWL: If a ticket is to be booked from an intermediate station to  another intermediate station, and if it is not covered by the general  quota or by the remote location quotas or pooled quota, the request for  the ticket may go into a Request Waiting List (RQWL).
  • CKWL: For tatkal tickets, the waiting list issued is CKWL. If  CKWL ticket goes up, it directly gets confirmed and doesn’t go through  RAC status unlike GNWL.
