It does not matter as all trains have different charting stations. Your charting stations is Erode. Your chart will prepare at ED so you can cancel your tickets prior to 4 hours as scheduled departure time at ERODE.
Always cancel the ticket before 3hrs or chart prepared from source station
After chart preparation if my ticket status is RAC will I get refund after cancellation
Yes… You will get refund. But cancellation had to br done before atleast half n hour before the the scheduled departure of train.
Your train is having Remote Location Quota in which chart preparation is done separately for different different important stations. So in your case your boarding time is 7PM so chart will be prepared around 3-4 PM. So upto 30 minutes before the train departure time from your boarding station you can cancel your waiting or RAC ticket.
If your ticket remained in waiting/RAC after chart preparation and if you will cancel it upto 30 minutes before the departure of the train you will get your full amount refunded by deducting clerkage charge of Rs. 60.
