Amendment in Tatkal Scheme

With a view to further improve the delivery of Tatkal tickets to passengers, the Ministry of Railways has decided that with effect from 10.07.2012 booking of Tatkal ticket will start at 1000 hours on the previous day of journey from train originating station instead of 0800 hours at present.

No authorised agents, including agents of IRCTC and RTSAs/RTAs will be allowed to book Tatkal tickets from 1000 hours to 1200 hours. The existing restriction of not allowing these agents booking of general tickets on the opening day from 0800 hours to 1000 hours will also continue.

    Revised Timing is a Retrograde step as it puts Office goers to untold miseries.
    Misuse is mostly in Reservation counters which may be curbed by entertaining one application from one person apart from introducing biometric system of identification of the said person
    Tatkal quotq shall be exclusively earmarked and shall not be intermixed with Regular berths .
    Tatkal Allotees shall be subject to 100% verification
    ACCESS TO IRCTC WEBSITE TO BE MADE VERY VERY FAST
    MASTER LIST OF PASSENGERS SHOULD ALSO HAVE A PROVISION FOR NOTING THE IDENTIFICATION DETAILS WHICH SAVES TIME WHILE BOOKING TATKAL TICKETS

    When IRCTC site is accessed by the passengers it is always very very slow and starts only after the booked of all the ticket under tatkal scheme. The site should be in the normal speed as is in the case of other timing to book the ticket otherwise it is useless. Still the agents will enjoy and will book all the tickets as usual.

    for office goers, they cannot spend time in booking tickets during officers. further THE BOOKING takes m ore than 30 minutes to book the tickets if the connectivity is obtINED. HENCE THE EXISTING SYSTEM OF BOOKING TICKETS FROM 8.00 IS FAVOURED. FOR TATKAL BAN THE AGENTS FROM BOOKING.
