What is the meaning of PQWL, RLWL, GNWL, RLGN, RSWL, and RQWL in a railway waiting list?

Here is a list of various kinds of tickets that can be issued:-   
This means that seat/berth is available and has been reserved for your journey. Your ticket will clearly indicate your berth type, seat number, etc. However, in case of first class AC sleeper or first class non-AC this information is not mentioned.

This system exists only for following classes:-                                    
    • Second AC Sleeper (2A)
    • Three-tier AC Sleeper (3A)
    • AC Sleeper Economy (3E)
    • First Class Non-AC (FC)
    • Sleeper Class Non-AC (SL)
It means that the passenger has to share the berth with another passenger, usually the side-lower berth.

All the seats have already been reserved and you are not allowed to board the train with WL ticket. You may be pushed to RAC or CNF status if someone cancels his/her ticket.
List is as follows:-

  • GNWL (General Wait List)
Issued to people beginning their journey from, or stations close to, the originating station of the train.
Highest chances of confirmation.

  • RLWL (Remote Location Wait List)
Issued to passengers travelling to intermediate stations.

  • PQWL (Pooled Quota Wait List)
