    A Pooled Quota Waiting List ('PQWL') is shared by several small stations in a particular region. E.g., Tiruppur, Salem, etc., share in the quota and wait list for some trains originating from Trivandrum or Mangalore. As another example, the 2723 Andhra Pradesh Exp. has three quotas, for Secunderabad - New Delhi, Secunderabad - nagpur, and Secunderabad - Bhopal. There is also a pooled quota for passengers travelling from Secunderabad to stations beyond Bhopal but short of Jhansi; if this quota is exhausted, a passenger is placed in the pooled quota waiting list. Such remote location quotas are also provided when there is a very strong demand for the train in question, because of which, without such additional quotas, all seats or berths might be fully consumed by passengers from the originating station leaving nothing available for those wishing to travel from intermediate points.

    WL 52 means that Total Waiting Passengers for A Train & Class. WL 48 means that your Waiting Number Decrease to WL 48 As some of the Early Tickets Cancelled by The Passengers. There are some Chances to got Seat. Minimum You can get RAC SEAT(SHARING A SIDE SEAT with One Another People). Finally, you have to Watch Their List Till The Journey Date/Train Staring Date.

    WL 52 - This is the waiting list serial number when you booked your ticket in waiting mode. WL 48 - This is your current waiting serial number on the date you checked. Since 29th Dec is couple of weeks away, it is very likely that your ticket will get confirmed.

    Pooled Quota waiting list is for upgradation of your class of travel. For eg: you had booked ticked in sleeper class then based on availability your will be upgraded to the next upper class all subject to availability.
