Hacks You Must Try


  • Firstly, make sure you remember that the Tatkal ticket window online opens at 10am sharp. 
  • If you are looking to book your tickets in sleeper class, the window opens at 11am sharp. 
  •  Make sure you are ready to open the window and book the tickets right at this time. This is because you might miss your chance to get confirmed tatkal tickets if you are late by even a second at times. 
  • While using net banking for payments, make sure you opt for the UPI option. This option is very safe, reliable, and, most importantly, quick, which can help you book your tickets faster. Again, using UPI increases your chances of getting confirm tickets. 
  • Make sure that you open the IRCTC website minutes before the given time. Select the master chart feature and fill in all your required details in advance so that you don’t have to fill in all of them after the window is opened. 
  • As soon as the window opens, confirm your details and proceed with the payment option via UPI.
