Now, general waiting ticket to get confirmed before tatkal quota

The Tatkal/Current rail ticket reservation will no more get weightage over normal waiting tickets. Generally people have to suffer in the journey as their tickets doesn’t confirm even if they have made reservations much before the date of journey. While those who make Tatkal or current reservations get confirmed tickets just a day before travel. But now there is a change in the ongoing procedure. Considering the summer rush the Railway Department has decided to give preference to the general waiting tickets over Tatkal tickets.

As per the new rule general waiting tickets will be given preference over current tickets while allotting berths in the extra coaches. Thus first of all thousands of passengers who make reservations well in advance will get their seats followed by Tatkal quota.

Earlier Indian Railways had issued a circular stating that the waiting lists will be cleared in the extra coaches before the current reservation tickets. But Indian Railways has rolled back from its previous decision to give respite to thousands of passengers.

  1. Good decision.. but who will get the priority if one tatkal confirmed ticket is cancelled before charting? tatkal W/L passenger or normal W/L passenger? if it is alloted to normal W/L passenger, the mere chance of tatkal W/L ticket to get confirm will also be vanished. then whats the importance of issuing tatkal W/L ticket?

  2. What do you have to say about this :

    An internal railway circular dated June 8, 2012, said: “In coaches added to clear the summer rush, the defined general quota would be allotted to Tatkal waitlist passengers hereafter against the vacant accommodation in that class. If any seats are still left after filling the Tatkal waitlist… it should be filled by the general waitlist passengers.”

    Dunno which to believe, but seems indiatoday website should be more reliable than noidanewzstreet.
