Tatkal Ticket Guidelines & Rules

Tatkal, which literally translates to “immediately”, are for those who could not plan their train travel well in advance. When you need to make last minute train ticket bookings, Tatkal tickets are perhaps the only option to have your train tickets booked.

Tatkal tickets can be booked for any IRCTC train, for all AC and non-AC classes. The Advance Reservation Period (ARP) has been now reduced from two days to one day prior to the scheduled date of the journey.

When Can I Book Tatkal Tickets

Tatkal tickets can be booked online, and this facility is available on the IRCTC website from 10AM for AC tatkal tickets and from 11AM for non-AC tatkal tickets on the IRCTC website. You can also book tatkal tickets on Paytm, where the ticket booking facility opens 30 mins after it is opened on the IRCTC website.
