IRCTC offers e-ticketing services for the passengers. People traveling by train can book tickets online through IRCTC portal or mobile app. In order to facilitate last minute or emergency bookings, IRCTC offers Tatkal and premium Tatkal services.
Premium tatkal is good for people who have a shortage of time. It allows passengers to book tickets with dynamic fare pricing at the last minute. Premium Tatkal fare is the basic train fare plus additional Tatkal charges. The charges range from 10 per cent to 30 per cent, depending upon the class. According to IRCTC, the maximum limit of premium Tatkal is 30 per cent of the base fare or Rs 400 whichever is higher.
However, in case of a tatkal train ticket, a user can book tickets under the tatkal quota from the IRCTC e-ticketing website, www.irctc.co.in, or from the Indian Railways ticket counters, booking offices and reservation centres. Read More
