    • Hello Rajesh

      Yes this is happening from last few days, Irctc site showing this message. We are figuring it out and will come with solution soon.

  5. pl clearify that if your place is close to irctc server u can book ticket with in 15sec (places like UP,Bihar,WestBengal) but if u are in Mahrashtra,TN,Kerela u cnt book before 35 sec the difference would b of 15 tp 20 secs

    • Hello Charai

      Well its the first time i heard of such thing that if you are near the server your ticket will be booked fast. As i don’t have any knowledge regarding this, i can not comment on this.

  6. Hi Goyal,

    while booking more than one tatkal ticket in one transaction, do we have to provie the ID Proof( PAN/Adhar/…) details for every passenger or just for the first passenger should be enough?

    • No you only required to provide id proof for one passenger but it is advised to add details of all passenger as If the passenger whose identity card number is indicated on the ticket is not traveling, all other passengers booked on that ticket, if found
      traveling in train, will be treated as traveling without ticket and charged accordingly.

  7. At 11AM I saw 174 tickets available for Secunderabad Machilipatnam Express.I filled in the details and it took me around 3mins,but by that time my ticket went for CKWL 4.

    I don’t know whats happening at the back end and how come in 3mins 170+ tickets are booked.There is definitely something fraud happening at the back end.

    Main Problem is OTP generating is taking long time.I am using ICICI Credit card for payment.

    • No if it will not confirmed till chart preparation then it will cancel automatically and if you travel with it, that means you are traveling without ticket.

  8. Since the start of this year 2016 Irctc is having almost no “service not available” errors .However the website Itself has gone through lots of advanced changes Mainly for the Tatkal bookings..
    1st condition is that one needs to be a huge tech savvy & Even after being a huge tech savvy there is still only a 50-50 chagbe of getting a tatkal tickets .
    But again it also depends on what train, where you wanna go , what time of the year ,what month you plan your journey cause sometimes if there is no rush even withen 12 to 15 mins you cud still get confirmed tickets.
    But some times if its a rush season everything abt tatkal gets over in just under 2.5 to 3 mins Lol
    The captcha is a much more difficult than before.
    I have booked lots of confirmed tatkal tickets but some times no matter what i do some or the ither problems comes. 🙂

    • Yes Parag there are lots of things that matters while you book your tatkal ticket. But the main factor that i analyzed is first the internet speed and other is the how fast you can fill details, even at the payment gateway.

  9. i almost made all tickets using the above trick. but since few days even then it results in Waiting list. Is there any sofware which are more faster like the time in payment is not wasted?

    • Normal ticket booking is always on, just it is halt for some 15 minutes at 00:00 hrs to 00:20 for maintenance.

  10. for paytm like wallets do i have to keep money in my wallet and yes what if my ticket doesn’t confirm how to take the money in wallet back

    • You can keep money in advance or can add at the time of payment, if you cancel it will be refund back to your paytm wallet

  11. E-wallet not working on Tatkal booking when it is highly needed. Its frustrating. Why one should opt for e-wallet. I recommending friends not to opt for e-wallet. You can use this money even for IRCTC food also.
