Tatkal Booking

I wish to share difficulties faced during Tatkal Booking on 24th & 25th October,2019. I faced several hurdles while booking Ticket for my son as he was on duty during 10-11am. First,System was not accepting payment through IRCTC SBI card or net banking. After the payment was made through Debit Card and confirmation received from the Bank, IRCTC says that Ticket is booked and issued ID100002102934037 subject to confirmation from the bank. IRCTC did not issue PNR because confirmation not received from the bank. This happened 3 times with payment made through SBI,ICICI bank on next day also. I spoke to IRCTC and send several mails. I realised that It is not possible to book Tatkal Ticket by general public. Even if you are successful, you get only waitlisted Tatkal Ticket. more

I thank everyone for participating in this discussion. I hope that railway authorities take note of these comments for betterment of our Tatkal Booking System. more  
YES SUCH PROBLEM WAS ALSO FACED BY ME. IRCTC is managed by some low qualified people more  
I fail to understand the meaning of waitlisted tatkal ticket Either it should be confirmed booking or rejected.... more  
It is high time IRCTC revert back to the old menu. more  
Though enormous complaints are coming in daily on rail ticket booking under Tatkal, its strange that the railways have utterly failed to bring in desired improvement in the matter during last many years. The railways had also failed to bring in any improvement in putting an end to the nexus among the railways staff and the enormous unauthorised agents so far excepting making falls assurances and certain changes in booking systems from time to time as an eye wash. Will the concerned authorities ever wake up and do something to bring an end to the nexus in real sense or the common users will be forced to go on only unending complaints & sufferings? more
