Revamp in tatkal scheme, tickets booking to start at 10am

Railways have revised the time of booking of tatkal tickets with effect from July 10 in a bid to prevent touts from cornering tickets. Booking of tatkal tickets, permissible only one day in advance, will start at 1000 hours instead of 0800 hours for the general public, while no authorised agent, even from the IRCTC, will be allowed to book tickets online until 1200 hours.

From Today, booking of tatkal tickets will start at 10 a.m., instead of 8 a.m.

For two hours, from 10.00 a.m. to 12 noon, no IRCTC agent will be allowed to access the Internet, or authorised to purchase tickets from the reservation counters. Tatkal tickets can be booked only a day in advance of the scheduled journey.
