Manually Cancellation: People go to Indian Railway website (i.e.) IRCTC and cancel the ticket directly by clicking on “Cancel ticket”’. If you do manually cancellation then the cancellation charges will be taken. The cancellation charges are taken irrespective of normal or Tatkal ticket.
Automatic Cancellation: Automatic cancellation means when the charts are prepared, the waiting list ticket will get automatically cancelled if it is not confirmed. At the Indian Railway IRCTC automatically cancel the waiting list and you are not allowed to travel in the train.
Important Note: We highly recommend on automatic cancellation because the refund amount (i.e.) the Waiting list cancellation charges are much lower. Don’t rush up and cancel the ticket immediately after it goes to waiting list. Just wait for few days booking keep watching periodically on the status of train ticket that you have booked. If it is increasing gradually on the waiting queue then don’t cancel the ticket. If it’s not confirmed then your railway tickets will get automatically cancelled as said earlier
