IRCTC Tatkal Booking : New IRCTC Facility, Reservation, Cancellation Rules
IRCTC users will be able to pay via cash, debit card or credit card by opting to have tickets delivered at their doorstep. IRCTC launches its new rules for New IRCTC Facility, Reservation, Cancellation Rules
The IRCTC also modified the existing Tatkal reservation and cancellation rules.
The booking timings for Tatkal tickets were changed in 2015 with booking for AC classes opening at 10:00 am and for non-AC classes at 11:00 am (one day in advance of actual date of journey excluding date of journey). There has no change in these timings and the same arrangement is continuing.
There is no change in the refund rules of Tatkal tickets, the IRCTC said. Under the existing rule, no refund is granted on cancellation of confirmed Tatkal tickets/duplicate Tatkal tickets. This rule continues to be in operation.
Here are some other things to know about the Tatkal reservation rules:
A maximum 4 passengers per PNR can be booked on Tatkal e-tickets.
Tatkal charges per passenger are in addition to normal tickets.
Premium Tatkal Facility: From October 2014, in select trains, a premium tatkal facility was introduced and tickets are sold on dynamic pricing. Fares go up depending on percentage of berths sold subject to a maximum cap.
No concession is allowed in Tatkal booking.
Modification of ticket in any form is not permitted in Tatkal ticket.
Anurag Bajpai, CEO of Anduril Technologies said, “Cash on delivery for tatkal tickets is going to be a huge benefit to millions of train travelers who need to book under the tatkal quota. The option to book first, pay later will find huge adoption among users. This move by IRCTC also aims to encourage people to buy tickets from the Railway Reservation Counters to move to online courses.”
