Dear Moderator,
Is there any preference to CKWL while preparing chart. In fact, Tatkal waiting list holders have paid more money than normal waitlist holders.

No Preference given to tatkal ticket holders.
Tatkal wait list & Gen Wait list are two different type of wait list & working independently from each other. So No issue of priority.
But yes people have wrong impression in their minds that having tatkal ticket(by paying more amount than gen ticket) they will be given preference over gen wait list. While it is not so.
wait list moves only when a passenger ahead of you in que in tatkal quota cancels the ticket & Gen Wait moves only when a passenger ahead of you in que in gen quota cancels the ticket.
If there are some non utilized quotas remained at the time of charting First it will be alloted to Gen Wait list.
Some say the preference to allot non utilized quota to different type of wait list is as follow
But I personally observed it is not so. Although Gen Wait list enjoys priority over other wait list quotas to get non utilized quota but I think there is fixed ratio to allot these quotas to each type of wait list but what it is I am not sure.
Good Wishes.

You posted following in your post....
"..Tatkal wait list moves only when a passenger ahead of you in que in tatkal quota cancels the ticket & Gen Wait moves only when a passenger ahead of you in que in gen quota cancels the ticket..."
@ This is incorrect.

Tatkal wait list moves when a passenger ahead of you in the queue (obviously WL Queue) cancels the ticket and also when confirmed Tatkal ticket holders (obviously not in the queue) ... cancels the ticket... .
The same is for General Wait list moving...
@ B Kayany :
@ In short, the reply is that Tatkal WL moves by cancellation happening in Tatkal ticket holders be it confirmed or be it under WL with WL No. ahead of you.
@ This is normal moving of WL nos. apart from mass moving caused by release of unused specific quota seats just before the chart prepartation time in the prescribed WL order where the Tatkal WL ticket holders get the last priority.

Dear Moderator
Please check the tatkal availability on 6347 on 19/01 from KTYM to MAQ and CGY to MAQ. This train departs KTYM at 00:03. For getting tatkal ticket on this date, only option is, to take ticket from prior station CGY to MAQ. Is it can be solved by computer coding?
