Tatkal ticket booking
topics Updated: May 25, 2016 10:29 IST
Tatkal ticket booking in the Indian railways is a scheme to book tickets at very short notices. The Tatkal booking starts at 10am for AC classes and 11am for non-AC classes one day in before the date of journey, meaning the day on which chart is to be prepared. In October last year, ‘Premium Tatkal Scheme’ was introduced to sell half the tickets on certain trains at a dynamic price -- rising with demand.
