i have booked a railway ticket for 3 persons and got 2 confirmed and 1 waiting ticket, but the problem is that i have selected the "book tickets only if all the above person in same coach", so if i dont get the 3rd confirm ticket in the same coach will the other ticket get cancelled or remain confirm.

The whole ticket will not cancelled automatically as you have two confirmed and 3rd will be confirmed only in case of the seat available in the same coach by system at the time of preparation of chart. Because the system will use the same check in this case. But your rest ticket will not cancelled automatically as you got confirmed ticket for two persons. Please note that the chances of confirmation of third passenger will be very less because of check selected by you.

Also note that the third person (W/L) can also travel with you without having seat number and you can accommodate him / her with two passengers.

Is the same applicable to RAC tickets too?

Author: Dinesh Sood28 Jul 2013 Member Level: Gold   Points : 2

Yes this rule is also applicable for online booking of RAC tickets, now there is a new notification for "W/L passenger will not allowed to board the train in any class either eTicket/iTicket or Ticket purchased from PRS Counter. W/L passengers will be treated as without ticket and can be punished / fined and also they can be dropped in the next station"
