I think valid, but if ticket dont gets confirmed then you will have to travel in General Class. No refund will be given.

Waiting tickets for sleeper class are valid but you don’t have permission to travel in SL class. You can travel to general class using same ticket.

But these days no general class bogies in trains.
So technically your wait list ticket is invalid.

currently you cant board a train without confirmed ticket…even for general bogies..there is reservation……

before covid situation…only counter waitlisted tickets were valid….online waitlisted tickets were automatically cancelled after chart preparation and you get refund…if after chart preparation there is rac you can cancel it..only 60 rs would have been deducted

@Imharsh

Counter ticket in WL even after chart preparation has to be given in counter before 30 mins of scheduled departure to get refund.

If a passenger failed to do so, then that money will not be refunded. And because of this, when a counter WL passenger boarded the train, in most cases, TTE will allow him in the SL coach itself.
Normally some passengers holding confirm or RAC tickets will not travel due to their personal reasons. And TTE will manage it with these seats. Mostly they will not deboard the passenger, as IRCTC gave already got the money.

Now again they are issuing WL tickets in counter. And also there are no checks happening in railway stations as they used to do last year for corona.

Last month travelled thrice, not even once asked tickets in station.

Location Chennai Egmore

Edit : They have started the old practice again. Allowing counter WL ticket passengers to travel in SL class. If at all there is no full seat or rac seat even after checking all the passenger list by TTE, then he has to sit on floor and travel. No other choice. But still it is rare.

Actually his Ticket is RLWL. Train starts from first station today night. Normal ticket 100 and and tatkal ticket 120+ was available from Train starting station. At the time of chart preparation they have confirmed his ticket also (eventhough train comes to his station of departure tomorrow evening only).
To check this probability only i asked the PNR.
