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

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  
How can there be waitlist in tatkal booking? Don't you think that it is ridiculous and MUST stop immediately? If the Railway does not consider it favourably the question should be raised in Parliament through BJP M.P. or Opposition M.P.. Payment portal is really very slow and affects all on line bookings. Indian Railways may with the arrangements with at least some Banks establish special Payment Portals for Railway Reservations only. However such action may inconvenience Bookies that keep Railway administration happy and contented (of course at the cost of Railways Customers). This grievance is going on for a long long time and if not resolved soon should burst into anti incumbency votes.
