When will wait listed e tickets will be cancelled. After second chart preparation of first chart preparation.
@Gandhi_Babu1 Usually fully waitlisted e-ticket gets cancelled after first charting only but it might show you cancelled status after train departs or after 1-2 hours of first charting.
Although ticket gets cancelled but it is not updated on IRCTC as that very moment. Sometimes it shows cancelled status after 4-5 hours of departure time too. So if the ticket is booked online and is in fully waitinglist then you don’t need to do anything. You will get refund automatically.
