    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

    There have been some reports that the IRI Atlas is not visible. This seems to be some problem at the Google Maps end. To resolve this, please log out and log back in, and everything should start working. Thanks.

How does Tatkal Waiting Proceed with respect to General Waiting.
Let me explain:
Pune Mumbai train has 96 tkts reserved for tatkal and 960 general tkts.
Ram has general quota WL #2 ticket
Sham has tatkal quota WL#2 ticket.
Who has higher chances of getting tkt?
Is it that Tatkal waiting is filled ONLY by tatkal cancellations?

Consider this scenario,
I am a Ram, a poor man, and i have WL#2 (General)
Then Sham decides he wants to take all his friends to Goa (Ohhh Gooaaaa.. anyways) and He books 100 tatkal tickets.
During charting we observe that 100 seats have been cancelled.
Will Sham and all his friends get confirmed tickets?
This is so unfair for Ram.
Another discrepancy is that, if Tatkal guys get preference, how does General Waiting status decreases from 48hrs before departure until the departure?
Apologies for being soo

Well, u had Describe ur self an Urchin Child?
What u said that 100 Cancellation in which?? Tatkal or General?
I Must say that this, unprecedented in IR's :)
Always, A Tatkal Ticket Holder Get's the Benefit. If Cancellations are More in General then Ram ticket would be CNF ( RAC Excluded)

Thanks for being patient with me but i am still not convinced.
When i said 100 cancellations, i meant 100 cancellations in General and 0 cancellations in tatkal.
(If there are 0 cancellations in tatkal, does that mean that neither Sham nor any of his friends will get confirmed ticket? If that is the case, where is the preference stuff. Ram has a ticket and Sham doesnt. There is no preference)

If the Bulk Cancellation's Happen's in General, then the Profit goes to Ram, who hold'ed General W/L Ticket. The Clearance of 100 Ticket's of Sham Depend's on the Availability of Quota's at the Time of Charting, or else Will Remain in W/L :(

Oh, i see your point now.
If progressively tickets gets cancelled, general has higher chances of confirmation..
If there are lots of available tickets at the time of charting, tatkal has higher chances of confirmation

Either Tatkal or General WL gets cleared due to cancellations within the respective quota till chart preparation. During chart preparation, while allocating vacancies in other un-availed quota, tatkal is likely to be given preference. Recently there was an official announcement to the effect that whenever extra coaches are added, Tatkal WL would be given preference.
