Common Man given priority to Make ‘Tatkal’ Reservations on IRCTC


Have you ever tried to book a ‘Tatkal’ ticket online on IRCTC as soon as the online counter opens at around 8 AM? If you have, there are chances that the IRCTC site does not let you do pretty much anything except from showing you a Busy Server right from 8 AM to 9 AM. The 1 hour window might not sound significant but given the limited availability of Tatkal tickets and invariably high demand, the tickets get over real fast.


Worry no more as Indian Railways has in a much appreciated gesture made ‘Tatkal’ reservations much more accessible for the common man. Indian Railways has taken measures pertaining to the access rights for web-based travel agents,

    • Travel agents / web-services agents / web agents of IRCTC will not be given access to Tatkal booking, through e-ticketing on all days between 8 A.M. to 9 A.M.
    • Travel agents / web-services agents / web agents of IRCTC will not be given access, through e-ticketing, to trains defined in the system on their respective opening day of Advance Reservation Period (ARP), between 8 A.M. to 9 A.M.

What this effectively means is that the first hour of the booking on the opening day will be available exclusively for users like you and me. The ban on travel agents will not only help reduce the traffic on the site during peak hours but also lead to more chances to a common man of availing a Tatkal ticket.

Travel agent accounts have the rights to book bulk tickets and as such they can corner most of the Tatkal ticket in the very first hour itself leaving others high and dry. What’s more, there are chances that some web-based travel agents might even be running automated scripts to book Tatkal tickets as soon as they are available. No wonder then that Travel agents come forth as life savior whenever one needs a ticket urgently.

The move should indeed help passengers book Tatkal tickets on IRCTC though as I mentioned in an earlier post on IRCTC being the largest e-commerce portal in India, the infrastructure on IRCTC leaves a lot for the asking.Why shouldn’t the authorities take enough measures to upgrade the infrastructure for the website to handle the increased traffic levels. Having said that, the ban of travel agents during 8-9 in the morning should definitely go a long way in making Tatkal reservations more accessible for passengers.

On the other side, this move is expected to have serious implications for travel agents. With the widespread adoption of IRCTC, travel agents would be already witnessing a lack in demand for their services. Emergency tickets in the form of Tatkal tickets is one big opportunity for agents to cash on and now that has been taken away from them.Wonder what will the reaction of travel agents to this ruling from Indian Railways.

The move is commendable since it addresses a huge pain point and signifies that Indian Railways is doing its bit to address issues slowly but surely. What are your thoughts on this announcement?

Do share your experiences if you witness any notable changes in accessibility and speed while booking Tatkal tickets online.

  1. […] chunk of tickets from IRCTC website and then sell them at premium to customers. They have earlier stopped agents from logging on to IRCTC websites between 8 am and 9 am, so that they cannot do Tatkal […]

  2. Vicky Sehrawat says

    I am a common man & I have a account on IRCTC when I tried to book the ticket under tatkal right sharply at 8 AM I have got the message Tatkal ARP booking is not allowed before 10 AM ,,,,,,

    1. ??????? ?????? says

      yaah yaar we r also Common man,,
      Y is the Govt. doing ths yaar,,

  3. Anrajendran Rajendran says

    live more trains problem solved……

  4. Sandy says

    The move by IRCTC to ban agents till 9 am has turned counter-productive. Earlier, though the site would slow down from 8 am, with some effort I could manage to book tatkal tickets, but now the site is totally irresponsive from 8 till 8:30 by which time all tatkal quota would be exhausted. Moreover, though agents are banned, nothing prevents an agent from opening multiple personal accounts and thus placing an even greater load on the system. Also, the change of advance booking period to 120 days is a bad design – for example for a Sunday evening train, the tatkal opens on Saturday 8 am and the 120th day also falls on Saturday 8 am, thus burdening the system even further. I feel they should modify things such that tatkal bookings open in a staggered way so that the system isn’t over burdened and genuine passengers can book tatkal tickets. As of now, things only help the railway staff and agents – you can get a tatkal for sure if you pay Rs.250 over and above the tatkal fare, to an agent, which ultimately gets shared between booking clerk and agent and the genuine passenger is left helpless.

  5. Gunjan says

    Tatkal booking still doesn’t work in the morning. This is frustrating.

    We must have some techno friendly ministers who have a vision rather than this crap like Ma, Mati, Manush

  6. genius says

    wtf are all of u nuts & is irctc gone crazy web agents r not issuing tickets for themselves rather for people only. IRCTC Needs to improve its website & control ticket blacking from main reservation center . little bunch of crap..huuhh…

  7. Gopi J Naidu says

    The indian IRCTC site only show pcs this site not a help full for common peoples,
    The site will be take 20 mit for open,very slow and allway showing THE DATEGIVEN WERE OUTSIDE ARP, 24/7
    This site only for agent who will give commision,
    All govt sites are very worst sites,
    Online services means 24/7 not only 12 hrs,

  8. Somnath Sharma says

    This is not going to help……. Rather Common people are facing problems……. And The Dates given were outside ARP is being shown for the whole day and not for the 8 to 9 am only….. A useless n problematic step from IRCTC…………..

  9. Sandy Rai says


  10. santi says

    IRCTCis only for Agents , not for comman man we cant change them

  11. sajjan rathi says

    its useless and creating moretroubles for common man because u cant ook ticket online from 8 to 10 am. till then takal tickets were over and morely agents were hanging at counters with there clients id proof to book there this is there business they can hang there but not common man its creating barriers for us nothing more than that…

  12. Camille Van Neer says

    It seems just another typical Indian phenomena: although everyone knows it doesn't work, everyone keeps on trying it, while the other 500 million keep on writing about its non-functioning. As a result: nothing changes. And if a change is introduced, it is immediately counter-acted by 100 side-effects or it leaves the ground-cause unaffected and thereby maintains the status quo.

    1. Camille Van Neer says

      But .. it seems that the unlikely happened to me this morning: I might be in possession of four Tatkal tickets, although only mine seems to be confirmed and the rest (those for my kids and wife) are wait-listed.

    2. Mahendra Kumar says

      Sorry to hear that

  13. Savin Khanna says

    This is ludicrous I am not able to book any ticket since yesterday 24/7 it is showing that the dates given are outside ARP. This website really sucks from 8 AM it will show Server unavailable and rest of the day the dates are outside ARP. High time this was privatized now.

  14. Kunal Singh says

    this might seem like a good move but the worst part is it was simpler and quicker to book from makemytrip and now the amm admi has no choice but to struggle and fail to book his or her ticket using irctc where the site actually takes 20 minutes just to login and keeps breaking off. it clearly shows the difference between the working of a private sector vs the govt sector. its sad to see that the govt believes the common citizen loves standing "inline". the website is a slap to indians and a kick to growth of India.

  15. Rajgiri Srinivasan says

    yeah.. it blocks the normal user till 10A.M and when I log in all tickets are booked… it sucks man!

  16. Hemant Sengar says

    Hi Everybody,
    This is Diwali time and I am staying at Pune. However I have booked my tickets from Mumbai to Bhopal as there are lot of trains from there. Due to some emergency I have to come o Bhopal a little early so I tried the Tatkal ticket on Tuesday to just check the reponse of the website on that day the site was working fine and even I could manage to book a ticket (this is from Mumbai from Pune the tatkal quota for all the trains went in WL within no time). But when I tried to book a ticket on Wednesday the site is not working and I am getting the request time out error. This is not for me I have asked one of my Friend as well and when he checked there are only 2 tickets available in Khushinagar Express he did all the things and after making the payment he get service request error when coming back to IRCTC site. Then we were not able to login itself in the window. However after 08:50 AM the site become fully functional as usual but by that time this is of no use.
    On the very next day I tried the same thing but the same result site was not available untill 08:50 AM and all the Tatkal bookings were sold out and remaining is just WL.
    If you are claiming that Agents have been blocked to enter the site from 08:00 to 09:00 AM then why are we still not getting the tickets and during festival occassions only site is going down don’t you have the database administrator’s who can manage the database or you pepole doesn’t want to resolve this issue as your commission is part of this.
    Now the tickets were snatched by the person who sits on the Reservation counter and they themselves sold the ticket to Agents on very heavy prices.
    What the Railway is doing to reslove this issue? Are they not getting salary on time or are they so hungry for money that they can sell anything. This is totally railway’s fault as they are aware of this situation but they failed to stop this smuggling of tickets.
    Best Regards,
    Hemant Sengar.

  17. Nitin Mukesh says

    well it looks like they have blocked normal users also from booking the ticket and not just for one hour but whole day :( indian railways sucks because it means ticket only avaialable through counter and there you need to pay if you do want the ticket.I was trying to book ticket for 6th nov 2011 on 6th aug and faced the problem whole day :(

    1. Rem Rah says

      Me too having trouble booking ticket now. SaysThe Dates given were outside ARP. Its 10.06 AM here. Hope it stays for whole day! :P

    2. Anup Bali says

      ha… The timing of your post says its 9:07… Misread??

  18. Pushkar says

    IRCTC is the worst site I have ever come across. The tatkal reservation system sucks to the core. This ban on Agents was uncalled for.

    I am a person who keeps frequently travelling. Its really frustrating that I have to keep blowing my head at 8 AM in the morning to get in. The end result: No ticket, High blood pressure and abusing IRCTC with whatever words you know.

  19. Shivashankar Bangalore says

    I have read that, in all above replies only agents are blocked for online ticket booking at 8-9 AM. Is the online tatkal ticket booking are banned for our individual/personal irctc accounts also at 8-9 AM of first opening day ?

  20. Vijay Sutariya says


    IRCTC have to increase service by online so all the common person as well as agent can book ticket at peek time………

  21. Frenil Shah says

    Dear Mr Amit
    First of all let me introduce my self , I am a travel agent .I would like to thank u Mr Amit to support us a bit . Yes as others say we take charges for the customers but we also having our costs . We need to take licence for being a agent we pay huge amounts for that then every year we pay AMC charges , we have to take very high speed internet, appoint a well trained man to issue tickets . And we dont issue tickets for our own sake ? when customer comes to us we specifically say this will be our charge . We get a reply “we want tickets at any cost” to we put our best to get the tickets then also we at times dont . When people do there best thy charge for it why cant a ticket agent? A chartered takes a high fees for service no one has any issues but a ticket agent charges he is in fault.why? We pay so much to irctc why r we not given special privialges or quotas and a common man who does not have to pay even a penny to make his id is given privilage this is not done.when a common man will sit on our place he will realize what happens. If thy want to do like this why do they make agents only? just keep it for public .

    1. Vishwas Kulkarni says

      Dear Frenil Shah,

      Though I am not agent, I fully agree with your views. If the agent is paying fees to indian railways, he should get 50% quota of tatkal quota and allowed to charge the booking fees over the quota. Agents saves time of customers giving peace of mind. Indian Railways should revise the tatkal and normal quotas as per waiting list size for each quota and publish this data on the web-site.


  22. Amit says

    After reading all comments I have a simple question to all those who are in favor with IRCTC blocking the agents.Because I am against IRCTC for blocking the agents . How many times it has happened that you have tried booking tatkal ticket from 8am -9 AM and in what season and you failed (festive seasons like HOLI ,DIWALI ) Obviously in such festive seasons almost everyone – common people-through friends ,friends of friends ,family members ,neighbors and agents try to crack the nut i.e booking tickets through IRCTC website .According to comScore, the IRCTC website was the top visited Indian travel site in April 2010, with 7.7 million visitors which is a big figure.And around 5 Million people try to login for TATKAL tickets at 8 AM in festive seasons.Normally the number is around 1-2 million. Any damn website would shiver if millions of people are trying to login at the same time -and in which some somehow succeed and manage to book .But if we say that a million are Travel agents of irctc it would be very stupid.Only 25% are travel agents and rest are common people as found. Fact is that all IRCTC Travel agents have is JUST A PRACTICE TO TYPE FAST, AND TO LOGIN AT A RIGHT MOMENT thats it .This any common man would learn if he is booking the tickets regularly and most of them including me does that. FIRST COME FIRST SERVE is the rule
    .There is no such software or no such Fraud that e ticketing agents can do as everything in E-ticketing is very transparent. Main game is played by touts and dalals sitting at reservation counters. They are the ones who manage to get the tatkal tickets in bulk with anonymous names and then sell each with double fares. This is the reason as 70 % of seats are taken by dalals and touts. So if a IRCTC travel agent is taking rupees 50 for his extra ordinary skills to book a tatkal ticket ..its very reasonable especially when you cannot go to station and cannot book through IRCTC website either. Think about some of those old and helpless people who cannot do either of the two things mentioned above. For them IRCTC agents are gift of god.
    In my opinion blocking agents from 8 to 9 is a bad decision by Railways .Main loophole is within the railways itself .Until and unless there is a proper functioning of railway reservation office , closing of IRCTC website will also not help.

    1. Terin says

      “Any damn website would shiver if millions of people are trying to login at the same time -and in which some somehow succeed and manage to book”

      How does google,gmail,twitter,facebook etc stand the load of millions of people? Why are these sites not shivering?

  23. SURENDRA says

    It is possible to program the server that the thing work well and this can be done
    through NETWORK SECURITY program can be desigened

  24. SURENDRA says

    the software must be programed in such a way that one machine can book only one ticket at a time and no machine(IP address) must be allowed to book ticket from the same computer for 3 day this is the only way to STOP Dalal

  25. Murthy says

    To railway minister : Madum u banned rail agents to book ticket in morning hourrs nd gave fullscale corruption to do in railway counter employees who were paid highly by govt. Agents are much better they ask minimum comiission accordimg to local status of passenger .ur what u feel uremployees other than voters are govt are more sacred can u please try any ticket from howrah to delhi through a common man a proxy tatkal ticket at sharp 8am how much ur employees will demand u will come to know . a bissiness class agent for his roti he will come down by his commission prices but ur employees fat salaried peoples wont comedown in commission prices because they were not depend on commision only they will get sallary. we can not bargain on railway tatkal commision what ever they say we have to pay that comission other wise we will miss our journey for months thats why dont distinguish railway agent and rail ticket booking counter both are same. previously lalu prasad yadav time five day tatkal time for all is more convinent to all to gent custumer , employee.

  26. Rakesh Sharma says

    Hi All,

    I have been trying to book the Tatkal tickets but never able to do so because it never opens between 8 to 9. I really do not think that IRCTC has stopped the agents for 8-9 time. I am not sure how I should book the tickets with out going to agent. Even worse is that when i book the ticket in general category in waiting list when I board the train most of the time 10 to 20% seats are free. There should be some method so that superficial shortage of seats should be avoided.

    Hope that in future some one will take care of common man.

  28. MOHD ASIF says

    i have read many comment, but due to heavy demand of tatkal tkt and less avaiblty this problem will never be solved. banning irctc agents to book between 8-9am has increased touts or dalal income, for UP ticket they even take 1000 rs extra per person and give 100% confirm tkt

  29. Someone says

    Well, Today the website IRCTC was not working at 8 AM.

  30. joseph says

    sir 2003 to till irctc is boking ticket irctc is private come govt 49 stake to private and remaing stake govt now the time change all are aware how the agents earning a lot of money in using computer and put ticket now govt in new portal of ticket booking thier tracking ip adress machine id no cash card for indiduval ac so no one cant put thakal in indiduval ac all agents go to their house and sleep and change bussiness well done mamtha ji very good only indiduval enjoy agent are bleeding in eyes ohh ohh ohh hahahaha 90% indiduval can use the new ticket portal and 10% only for agent in irctc 90% agent 10% indiduval using now the time change bye bye bye agents god open the eyes with the help of mamtha banejee jai hind to mamtha

  31. Kannan says

    Even after the Ban the same story continues…From 8.00AM IRCTC site is not working and by the time it starts working there are no tickets left.

  33. Manikantan T S says

    Not sure whether it is implemented or not. But since two weeks, i have seen my friends succeeding booking tickets in the first attempt ! I am going to try two tickets next week. I’ll post the status of same here :)

  34. Tomo Gamlin says

    In addition to all the comments, suggestions and remarks made above, as an anguished yet occasional railway traveller; woould like to put some suggestions:
    1. To mitigate the woes of regular travellers and busy corporate/ private regulars, around 10-20% can be left for the registered travel agents. This will ensure a modicum of business for the self employed.
    2. vigilance in the railways should be stepped up to ensure that the nexus of touts and railway officials does not flourish.
    3. Keeping on idea of online checking, why not keep a certain number of screens/ kiosks like ATM’s whereby the status of booking of the ticket can be checked by punching in the PNR numbers. Waiting in queues and coming upto the counter clerk to find that they are taking a tea break is really heart breaking specially when there is only 10 minutes left for the train to start and leave station.
    4. The casual attitude and lack of service orientation in our indian railways amongst other services is legendary. As a student we have found it quite disparaging and distraught experience.

  35. Ajay says

    Rajan i agree to you, i too feel agents are not that bad, and authorized agents are those who have been given certificate to work by IRCTC. so how can IRCTC take back these rights. this will leave agents unemployed as well as disturb the life of the common people. also this is giving rise to touts & dalals to do their malpractices.

  36. Pranjal says

    I have an IRCTC account which is locked second time.
    When i tried to reset the password through forget password link, it asks User id, question and Answer. I provided all the details and it throws an error “Answer is Incorrect”. This happend second time and both the times i tried to login through the actual password.
    I waited for a week and there was no response from IRCTC customer care. I called them up on 24 Hrs. Customer Support at 011-23340000 and it took about 12 calls to make them understand about the issue. When ever i called up the customer support the person attnding the call will redirect me to someone else after listening to my detail and again i need to explain whole story, inshort that was waste of time and money.
    I sent an email at [email protected] also submit at and got an automated email as Ticket Confirmation for the request.
    IRCTC should hire service and satisfaction oriented support executives so that it a common man has no pain of wasting time and money.

  37. Rajan says

    No Raiway take a wrong step and the technology steps going back. surely it’ll use some iird range local counter agents, profit. Before three days my friend booked through counter agent with extra payment 50% in ticket cost. Agents booking normal charges and they are also servicing for peoples and railway. Many peoples not possible to attend counters in early morning. It’ll loss their one day work.
    I still feel agents are Good. Many normal commen persons not possible to attend to counter from early morning…….

  38. Anudeep says

    I agree with you. That is why under the improvement areas, I have mentioned that “2. Reserve some % of tickets to common man”. First should be always common man….:)

    But, people like should also get some chance (I am also a common man…)


  39. Viral says

    For some of the comments above who have complaints that booking tickets through agents was easier and since they’ve to do frequent ups and downs, should not worry much as this step won’t bar agents from serving you. In facts, agents will still be at your service after 9 am.

    And, what if you fail to get a ticket from the agent after that window of 9 am? Possibly, that would mean that a millions of other general public could have benefited (both online + offline) in booking a tatkal ticket for themselves personally, on implementation of this rule. Its the broader general public which would benefit in absence of agent service during the opening hour.

  40. Piu says

    Nice Move.

  41. Anudeep says

    Good thoughts shared. However, being a techie, I do not have time to go to railway station, stand for 3-4hrs early morning and not sure whether u get the ticket or not. I prefer to book tickets using IRCTC, website which may not be available from 8 AM 8.20 AM.

    Hence, I take it from a travel agent who charges Rs. 50 per ticket. Today, he mentioned that this rule has already got implemented. He is not issuing any more tickets now. I have tried booking ticket using IRCTC today, but no change, same problem. Barring agents would not be a solution.

    Every country moving toward online system, but we Indians moving back to standing lines, begging railway staff…very sad….we should encourage online systems, which saves lot of time, money and it is an efficient way. Please guys, encourage online systems and help getting me the tatkal ticket.

    Think about the people who are very far from railway stations (example my village) who can not go to railway stations and get the ticket
    Think if we have computer and net, if there is not current, what to do…
    Think about the people who do not have online banking systems….

    There are many people like me who are dependable on agents…agents should be given back the opportunity…

    Areas of improvement:
    1. Increase the infrastructure of IRCTC
    2. Reserve some % of tickets to common man
    3. Allocate some % of tickets to agents
    4. The big change should be, increase the number of train with respect to the increasing population…

    Jago India Jago…


  42. sunil agarwal says

    SIR,I This seems to be sweet for common people, but the reality is different. as a comman man this decison of yours is proved wrong for me ,i have to do weekly up down and i used to bk these tickets from irctc agents but now your these new provisions hv made a comman suffer in the rail-counters;now thoug the irctc agents have been restricted from booking tatkal ;those agents at the rail-station are blessed by you because a comman like me who is least intrested in waiting at the quese has to pay much much more….”so please sir under stant the root cause of the promblems these days…..”
    sir i suppose you might have never waited in those queses ……so hoping that you soon correct your mistake…”a kind request from a regular passenger of yours….”

      what language is this?



  45. Bhavesh says

    When will this be effective from??

    1. Ankit says

      Bhavesh, as far as i know this has been already implemented at multiple locations which suggests that the ban is already functional. However, i am not aware of the exact date for nation wide rollouts

  46. shailesh Agrawal says

    Why do we have shortage of tickets(Births) in first place?? If railways can handle that, all the problems will be solved. Is Mamta Di listning ?

    1. Ankit says

      Interesting point Shailesh and it is true that the number of trains should increase with the increasing population. However, baby steps like these if executed well go a long way in making things easier

  47. Ruturaj says

    This seems to be sweetener for common people, but the reality is different. Agents have got under the table setup at counters directly, as soon as counter are open, those are people first to book Tatkal ticket. The commission rate for tatkal ticket is somewhere between 150 – 200 per seat. Good Money……..all corruption…..

  48. Satinder says

    It’s of no use stopping the website or web agents from 8am to 9AM, reason being
    1) from 8 till 8.30 IRCTC site hardly works.
    2) All the tatkal reservations gets over by 8.15AM, and if you are late, lets say by 15 mins (8.30AM), the system will give you waiting list.
    3) If you want to book a tatkal ticket you have to get up by 5AM, go to the station and stand in a queue. Not sure, who want to do that?
    If you are lucky and that their computer & printer works fine, you will get ticket. Otherwise come again tomm.

    I still feel agents are Good. Ofcourse you pay lil higher but I guess now a days nobody mind paying lil higher if that can save their time.

    1. Ankit says

      Satinder, the very reason that IRCTC site does not work during 8 to 8:30 is because these web-agents hog all the traffic (possibly using automated scripts too). Moreover, they get on to the site first so obviously they book tickets in bulk which is the reason that Tatkal tickets get over in the first 15 minutes or so.
      So, with the agents barred from accessing the ticketing counter(offline/online) during the peak hour, there are better chances of passengers being able to book the tickets.

      I agree that Agents are good since they charge for the service they provide. But why pay extra if there is a way for doing it by yourself. Now i have no idea how accessible IRCTC is going to be become after this regulation, but the intent seems logical

      1. Sathya says

        Ankit, How can agents predict that these travellers will come and take the ticket booked by them as in the eticket name and age is mentioned? Its all Railway officials and their touts plans to make more money. If you go to railway counter you see touts are sleeping from before night and they will sell the place ranging from more than Rs1000/- and more depending upon the rush. Its IRCTC to upgrade the server capacity to handle the traffic at Peak Hour. Not Baning the agents to issue tickets from 8:00 to 9:00 A.M is not solution. Railway vigilence has to check all the railway counters how the employees of railways are making money with this tatkal scheme with their touts keeping in the queue. Jaago India Jaago.

        1. Ankit says

          Sathya, can relate to the views you express. As for booking tickets without passenger details, i am not sure if agents have options to book something of blank ticket but there were definitely mentions of some web-based agents running automated scripts. As for touts spending the night at the counters for trading place, well that is going to be there.
          The general view has been negative but come to think of it, if web agents are indeed hogging all the bandwidth, logically speaking there should be a better chance for passengers to book tickets
          If you go through the actual news source, you will notice that Railways has also mentioned conducting vigilance checks to spot illegal activites but i did not include it since that part has every chance of getting murky amidst the jugadoo attittude :-)

      2. OSAKA OLIVER says

        I Have Some Questions?

        How many people are tech savy. Percentage of people who are using Internet is very low
        If some one is staying 100 km away from Reservation counter.
        IRCTC Banned Agent ID on IRCTC But Agents Can Also Book Their Ticket Through Personal ID. This Is Will Also Cause Heavy Load On IRCTC.

        The Same Server Problem Will Remain Because of This

        1. Ankit says

          Osaka, even normal agents will not be allowed at your reservation counters from 8-9. The ban is on both offline and online agents

          Secondly, if the agent logs on with a personal id, atleast he wont be able to book multiple tickets at a time. In that case, the agent will have as much a chance as you and me

      yes right, compare to unathourised counter agents, irctc agents service is best. i don’t want to loss one day salary. i am ready to pay some charges to agents. No a day after ban for agents, counter agents collecting 200 + for one person sleeper tatkal bookings. most of commen peoples like agents only.
