Use the 24 hr call center
I found that the call center folks could assign seats in advance even if you cannot use the web. You can use the standard 800 number from the US or call their Indian number. I was able to do this both on reservations made by a travel agent and on tickets purchased on the web (I called the Yatrik cell for reservation made on the web - the number was in the confirmation email).
