I checked the flight ticket just to analyse the price difference.
The Indigo flight from Kolkata to Delhi is available at INR 5100 only, while premium tatkal is at INR 5980.
90% of the people will prefer going by flight rather than train considering the price and time.
So, I hope premium tatkal at this high price will not be taken and will

No one has booked the ticket using the premium tatkal.
The current status of Premium Tatkal for the same kind of ticket shows => AVAILABLE-0006
How are the chances now??
Is there no refund on the cancellation of the confirmed ticket?

that is the case, if a person who booked the ticket in tatkal will not even cancel the ticket because it will be a time waste for even and there will be no financial gains too. The people in the tatkal waiting are the ones who suffer as those vacant seats are personally sold by TT at their cost.

I wish the same. :)
Yes, 4 PT available now at INR 6415.
If someone is really in need to travel to Delhi, they can take the other Rajdhani from Kolkata to Delhi (it runs at approx the same time) where 21 PT are available at lesser price of 5415.
I guess, Kolkata station is approx 5-6 km from Sealdah.

REFUND for TATKAL confirmed ticket cancellation
I read many different posts and railway rules on internet.
I see that there no refund (ZERO refund)on the cancellation of the confirmed ticket.
The Indian Railway should modify this rule and provide some return to the people who cancel their confirmed tatkal ticket.
This

will help 2 cases :
(i) People in the tatkal waiting list will get the seats upgraded to may be confirmed state. Their hope will sustain. The seat upgradation will be more transparent.
(ii) I am sorry to state, but I observed that there are still some TTEs who sell these vacant seats if someone from confirmed tatkal reservation did not board the train.
If there is a provision of some % refund made to the people who coz of some reasons will not be able to board the train/change their journey plans; it will encourage them to cancel the ticket because of some financial recovery possible. In this way, the people with waiting ticket will be benefited and the transparency in the railway ticketing will also be enhanced.

Bhai this move was made so to remove touting..touts buy the tatkal ticket and sell it on a very high price..and specially on festivals times they dig a big hole in passengers pocket.so to reduce this no refund is there which is infact a very good move.

Re# 1771717-2            Tags   Past Edits
sir whatever u said is very true but present rules for Tatkal and normal booking should be more strict
Because "Dalals" everytime find out new ways of looting peoples and because of this common peoples never gets Confirm tickets specially tatkal. Present rules is ok it should not be change.

Re# 1771717-3            Tags   Past Edits
In that sense I agree that it's a good move.
But refund can be made to a humble 10-20% such that it will discourage touts for taking such a big risk.
Secondly, a common man who in case wants to change the journey plans can cancel it and thereby help the people in the waiting to have a chance to travel. Otherwise, if not the ticket-agent, it will be the TTEs who will make that false money out of a pockets of riches (who can afford to pay good amount to TTEs

as a bribe) and the common man in waiting list won't even get to travel. The waiting list of the people in tatkal will never move up and the waiting concept itself will be of no use if there is no hope existing.

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
