The scheme was launched on pilot basis for the tickets booked through internet on Delhi-Lucknow and Delhi-Jammu sectors of Northern Railway. It will be operational for six months.

The purpose of the scheme is to provide confirmed accommodation to waitlisted passengers and also to ensure optimal utilisation of available accommodation.

Under this scheme, wait listed passengers of a train can opt for confirmed accommodation in alternate trains.

However, ATAS opted passengers who remain fully waitlisted after charting will only be considered for allotment in the alternate train.
