In order to avoid misuse the Tatkal scheme, a refund is not granted at the time of cancellation of confirmed tickets except for some exceptional situations. Only in cases where either the train is delayed by more than three hours or if the train is running on a changed route, the fare of the ticket is refunded and Tatkal charges on confirmed tickets booked under the Tatkal scheme is granted. Tatkal tickets can be booked online as well using the IRCTC website or at the 10,300 counters of 3,465 computerised Passenger Reservation Centers in India.
