If your ticket was originally waitlisted, but is now confirmed then you will be allocated a seat at the time of chart preparation. For e.g. if the PNR Status says something like 10WL/CNF, then your current status of the ticket is confirmed. In this case you will be allocated Coach & Seat once the chart is prepared for the Usually chart is prepared 4 hours prior to start of the train from the origin station of the train. So even if you are not boarding at the origin station, you may expect an update on the seat number 4 hours prior to the origin station.

How often should I check for PNR Status Updates ?
