For using this option, you have to buy waiting ticket from the ticket window counter. Online unconfirmed tickets are not eligible for this option. Online unconfirmed ticket passengers are not allowed to travel inside the train as the ticket money is refunded to the passenger if the seat is not confirmed till the time of departure of the train. However, online users do not get the benefit of this, so this facility was not given to them at all.
Therefore, after getting the waiting list or current booking ticket from the ticket window, passengers can contact the TTE of the train to find out whether any seat is vacant even after chart preparation. If you have this ticket then ticket checker cannot stop you from travelling but if TTE has no spare seat left in train then you will not get any seat.
