the tatkal amendment supposedly done on 10/07/2012 and today is 25/04/2014 still when a lay man(registered user of irctc)tries to book a ticket or tries to access the www.irctc.co.in site between 10am to 12pm he will never succeed in doing so am saying this b'cause am trying this from the past 1 and 1/2 month unsuccesfully,many of my friends and fmly have the same to complain about,so it goes to prove that the home page access where u actual manovure ur booking is inaccessible to the lay man which means access is defaulted to a certain group,now who gets that access is a matter of investigation for the railway ministry and not the rly officials...sorry state of affairs Mr RAILWAY MINISTER.
IT IS NICE WHICH CAN HELP TO STOP MISUSE OF RESERVATION OF TICKETS BY TRAVEL AGENTS, SELLING THEM MARGINALLY VERY HIGH PRICES.
there is a need to change the railway system in showing the tickets to the TTI. for an example suppose my parents had gone to visit Kumbh mela and now i want to book return ticket in tatkal for them from allahabad to jaipur at Jaipur railway station. if i got the simple ticket instead of e-ticket then how it would be possible for me to sent the ticket and the railway does not allow scan copy of this ticket.therefore, the scan, fax copy shall be permitted or there can be a facility by converting the same into e-ticket so that they can show the pnr or seat no. on their phone.
I am sorry to say that on last saturday I tried hard to book my online ticket as I opened the IRCTC website between 10-12 but finally failled
I am sorry to say that on last saturday I tried hard to book my online ticket as I opened the IRCTC website between 10-12 but finally failed to book my ticket till 12 pm.now tell you what happened,while i was about to book my ticket at last code was being searched for a long time but code has not appeared till my login time expired.
So I feel it could not help the public as thought it could be.
AN EXPERIMENT HAS BEEN HEARD TO BE DONE WITH PUJA EXP..EXTENDING MORE COACHS..LET IT BE DONE TO ALL TRAINS..
Main problem is less trains and more passengers. Govt is moving around the bush. They should introduce more trains.
I have myself experienced the corruption in booking tatkal ticket. Agent offer money to Rickshaw walas, majdoors and other workers to sleep in the night at railway station in the line for 500 to 1000 rupee. In morning agents come with ID proof of passengers and get the tatkal ticket. Even if common people go to station in the morning 4 Am/5 Am, they can not be part of the line. All people keep sleeping till 6 am and if you object to railway police for this way of line making, Police wala will not help anymore. policewala says either you go back to line or make someone to sleep for INR 500-1000.Because Police walas are offered very hefty amount of bribe by agents. Once I was at station and saw the situation and I called at 100 number. You will be surprised to know that even these nearby Police wala/choki/thana are corrupt. They also get money from agents. Agents threatens if we call 100 number again than they will kill us. This is fact. Let us see what happens to new changes.
At railway counter only passenger should be allowed to book tatkal railway ticket and there should not be any line from previous night where people keep sleeping and in the morning they will be part of the line. Policewala should make sure only those people will be in line who themselves are passengers with valid ID proofs.
