HELP!! about TATKAL tkts
i need a tatkal ticket for a train which departs from my boarding station at 4:00 am on SUNDAY morning.
So should i get my ticket on saturday morning 10:00 OR
on friday morning 10:00?
confused because the train has a very long route and leaves from jammu-tawi on saturday but i catch it on sunday morning in central India!
Does tatkal need booking 24 hours prior to train-timing, OR just a SIMPLE day (date) by am/pm format...

the station code is MKI as followed by IR and IRI.
the departure time is 01.58 hrs and not 04.00 hours
the departure day is sunday,
but seeing the booking status of Regret by IR, the booking has opened on 1.8.2013.
opening date on various stations needs to be verified for each station.

Which class ?
In case of 3A and if you can travel up to MFP (atleast ) then take Avadh assam from MFP on open SL ticket up to SPJ and from SPJ:
25610 GHY JIVACHH LIN 4- 8-2013 GNWL23/WL6 3A
and for 8- 8-2013 GNWL22/WL18 GNWL4/WL2 both class status is good to book.

technically you are 3AC passenger. Unless you get confirmed ticket in SL, you can not travel in that class. But you can always check with TTE and ask him if he can allot you a seat either in 3AC or if you are willing in SL.

    Often we have some TL Entries seemingly in WaitList forever. Usually, the reason for this is that TLMs have already looked at the TL Entry but are not confident enough to Confirm it or are looking for more inputs from the Member regarding the source, etc. And this delay eventually causes...

    This is to address persistent and lingering questions about FM Appointments: . 1. Being an FM is a service. It is NOT supposed to be some kind of "reward" or "medal" to "deserving" members.
