Before buying the ticket i checked Irctc website is showed Seat Available but the number of seat was showing Zero (0). I bought the ticket from Post Office. Where the person on the counter explained me that its a confirmed ticket but it won’t show any Coach & Berth number on ticket . I will get to know about them after Chart is prepaid. So i bought them and checked the ticket under the coach it was mentioned as RAC3 & RAC4 but under Berth It was mentioned as CNF.

So i checked it status today and it says this

So i would like to know is it confirmed now or its still in RAC status. I am a little confused .

@abhim25

This means you have got confirmed seats but coach no & seat no will be notified only after chart. So you have no choice but to wait till then.
You can send your pnr no. to 139 to get status on travel day after chart preparation to get exact details.
Send PNR < no. > to 139

Rac 3 and rac 4 means cn travel with this ticket ,if four ppl before you cancel their ticket u will b given berth

Otherwise two ppl with rac status will be given a single berth that means they will have share berth

Rac was at the time of booking, now tickets status is confirmed so he will get seats.

I think there will be an extra coach for this Class about which system doesn’t have an updated info as of now, so it will be confirmed in Chart later, depending on the preference of the passenger made during booking.

Thats what i fear, if it is confirmed that i would get one berth & i don’t have to share it, than i would have canceled one ticket . But i could never know until i complete my hole journey.
Last time i knew that i have to share my berth with one person from originating station but after 4 hours i got to know that i have to share one berth between 4 people.

you have a confirmed seat -only seat no is not known and will be published around 3-4 hours before train departure or final chart preparation. No sharing will be there.

There is no way that a berth will be shared with 4 people. RAC is always allotted on side-seats and it will be shared with only 2 people. In case it involves day journey, you have to share seat with the other RAC ticket holder. Either someone may have fooled you or probably you or they had booked only for partial journey, hence 2 RAC tickets upto certain point and then another 2 RAC tickets for remaining journey.

For your ticket status – I guess you have booked 1AC. In that case berth/seat no will be alloted only at the time of chart preparation. The status that you see on your ticket is Initial/Overall status – which means the booking had happened till the RAC position 3 & 4. However some people have cancelled so the status at the time of booking is confirmed. If you look at the status of a Waitlisted Ticket, you will understand.

Dont worry, your ticket is confirmed. When very few seats are available, IRCTC don’t allocate berth at that time and gives you status as CNF which means your berth is confirmed but exact berth no. will be allocated when chart will be prepared.You will get 2berth once chart is prepared.So nJoy!!!!!

For RAC/WL positions, two status are shown in tickets, 1st the original position as per serial and 2nd the actual position at the time of booking. In case there are cancellations before actual booking, it is possible that the earlier WL/RAC position has now entered confirmed status. Many must have seen tickets showing 2 WL positions, like WL15 WL3 which implies that even though in serial the position is WL15, due cancellations made before booking the actual position is WL3.
In this case, the ticket shows exactly that. Position was originally RAC but due to cancellations made before booking of this ticket, earlier RAC had become confirmed even before booking.
But in all such cases, the actual berth allocation is made only at the time of chart preparation.
