Have you computer/internet ready
The Tatkal quota opens up at 8 am sharp only at IRCTC while it opens at 9 am at other sites like So occupy your computer by 7.30 am. Check your internet connection open browsers and login into them from different accounts.


Sync your computer's time with Indian Rail Servers(Computers)
You must sync it. Because if you press submit button before 8 am then you'll get an error and waster your time. If you press later, you dim your chances to book the Tatkal rail ticket. So how to know the correct time? Go to this link. Type in any value(or 14553 ). Now press "Get Schedule". In the result scroll down to see the browser time. It is also shown in the following pictures:


Download Different Browsers
Download & install different browsers on your computer: Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Opera. Now have at least 3-5 IRCTC logins of your relatives ready. Login from each browser using different login name. Also from each browser open another window with IRCTC login page with your login and password filled in. So if your login in Firefox does not work then from this another Firefox window login again just by pressing Submitting button.


Get a auto form filling software
For Tatkal every second counts. Save your time by having your login/passwords and other details filled automatically by single click. On Firfox you can use free add-ons like Auto Fill forms. If you want to pay up to Rs. 1400- 2000 then you can buy a more professional version like RoboForm. You can now book like professional IRCTC agent.


Have Bank Account Ready - Never use ICICI Bank's account
Use the bank account which requires minimum inputs. SBI and HDFC's are one of the best. Check the IRCTC payment gateway statistics and avoid using those banks whose transactions mostly fail. For example in this list you'll see that Rajasthan Bank's Netbanking success rate is only 39%! While ITZ Cash Card is has the highest success rate among all channels. Never ever use ICICI Bank account. You'll never be able to book a Tatkal using it. Avoid account of Yes bank because for payment it sends one password on your mobile which can get delayed.


Get your train details ready
Have ready the source/destination station codes. You'll need to click "Plan your travel" link to proceed. You need only max 4 characters station codes in it. Find the station codes from here. Mind you when you login, "Plan My Travel" is opened ready for you. Just fill the station codes in the "From" and "To". Select Date, Ticket Type and Quota(Tatkal here). Click "Find Trains" button only after 8 am sharp.

1. You can login only single account from any browser. Use different browser for different login 2. Mind you Quick Book is disabled for Tatkal in the morning. Don't use it. 3. Never click a link twice. IRCTC site will give error and you'll need to relogin.
