IRCTC TATKAL RESERVATION RULE REVISED

Tatkal Ticket Booking Time Changed :: July 10 - 2012
Indian railways announced that will revise the Tatkal ticket booking time changed from 8 AM to 10 AM on the previous day of journey from train originating station. That is we can book the Tatkal ticket after 10 AM only from July 10 - 2012. Indian Railways also announced that will the agents can able to book the Tatkal ticket from 12 AM only, this includes Indian Railways Catering & Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) and Railway Travel Service Agents (RTSAs).

Last Update 02 - 07 - 2012:-

According to one of the trusted media, there will be inspections on the clerks by a special squad during the ticket tatkal ticket booking. Also one of the interesting news is that the IRCTC Ticket booking staff can't able to attend the Mobile phones during there job. There will be CCTV camera and vigilance will cross check the same too. So we can expect a better ticket booking on the Indian railways stations.
Also they have reported that there will be new Special Tatkal Ticket booking counter so that it won't clash with the normal ticket booking. The special tatkal ticket booking counter already started on the central Western Railways. One more important point is that we can book only one ticket on the new Tatkal ticket booking from one User ID and IP address.

I think this will resolve most of the issues of the Tatkal ticket booking.

Do you think this will reduce the traffic of the IRCTC during the peak hours as well as getting Confirmed Tatkal Tickets?

  1. Already traffic was reduced, it become very easy to book tckt from home but this new rule will be a problem as,

    1. for those who want book tkct from office will not be possible as on one IP address only two tckt can be booked and by the 10:00am every body will be in office.

    plz dont change the time

  2. Changing time from 8 am to 10 am will be inconvenient for office goers. Please keep the tatkal online ticket booking time from 8am. Do not change it.

  3. you can change the time any part in 24 round the clock but when we try to get a tatkal ticket from home at that time your side always hang due to rush,it is need to improve.

  4. It is a welcome move as Railways is thinking seriously. 8 AM should be kept.But the railways should improve its site for booking of tickets.This is most important part.

  5. This method will be inconvenience for office goers. You cannot expect all of them to stand in the Q.

    The previous method of 2 days earlier tatkal ticket booking was the better option, i feel the traffic was less that time. As it is reduced to one day the traffic is increased since then. Else the IRCTC has to increase the infrastructure to accommodate the request.

  6. please do not change the time from 8am to 10am.. It will be inconvenience for office goers, college and school goers..

  7. It is better to keep 8AM rather than changing to 10 AM as it is inconvenient for most of the online users to take tatkal

  10. this will not resolve the issue of tatkal bookings you have to think something else, agents wont get confirm tickets at 12noon its simply disgusting. coz at ticket windows the lines will be the same, people come 1 day before when the tatkal booking open & wait for 16 18 hours when the window will open, & and when it opens the mess you see over there is horrible.

  12. i think changing time and the new rules is a bigger scam. At least i was able to make reservations before but now i can't even login during this time. I tried several times from past 4 weeks and never successful

  13. Why not ask for uploading of scanned or jpeg image of Photo Identity card during Tatkal booking as a compulsory measure ? It will take care of the current problems faced by us travellers ...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Is there any rule to attach photocopy of your ID proof to book Tatkal or normal booking? Railway authority please explain this urgently. Panvel counter clerk was asking for photocopy and made life miserable for senior citizen and ladies standing in queue for hours.

  15. We are working in software company most of us book tatkal ticket from office only. now rules specified that two ticket is allowed for booking ticked for a specified IP Address --Since only two person is able to book from the IP Address(office) And Others are restricted to book ticket from office it is a big problem for software peoples so please change IP Address restrictions

    ReplyDelete
  16. Please change IP address restrictions.

  17. VERY IMPORTANT FEEDBACK: KINDLY IMPLEMENT IT THIS WAY:

    1. MAKE IT MANDATORY TO PROVIDE EITHER PAN CARD OR AADHAAR CARD # to pinpoint the person who did the booking.

    2. SUCH PERSONS can TATKAAL book any time of IRCTC i.e. 12:30 AM to 11:30 PM. for their own Family i.e. children and parents. Also, such persons can be given slightly more number of bookings per month like 20 instead of 10, because many people travel frequently for office to short distance of 2 to 5 hours, often 8 tickets a month just for that; like Mumbai-Pune, Chennai-Bangalore, Mumbai Ahmedabad, NZM/ Delhi-Saharanpur, etc.

    3. FOR ALL OTHERS, put time restriction as 10 AM ONWARDS etc.

    THIS WILL MAKE IT FAIR FOR HONEST BOOKERS and TIGHT FOR DISHONEST BROKERS!

    Jai Mother INDIA !

  18. Just try to call on their helpline number , They hang up the phone on your face

  19. Anyone may be able to book, but it is an herculean task as the irctc website disappears when you login for Tatkal booking. Some arrangement must be made for the common public to book Tatkal tickets online. So many times it has disappeared or surfs for more than 10 minutes and there is no scent of the website itself.

    Please IRCTC, be thoughful about this and enable the general public to book Tatkal tickets online. Thank you

  20. I was booking a tatkal ticket on internet, it is showing that i am permitted only two tkt between 8 to 10, 2 tkt per ip address. But i havent taken a single reservation since months. Then why such kind of error. It cheating from IRCTC part as they sell the tkt to agent, who charges heavy amount.
