I know of agents who create multiple private ids based on various sim cards and are booking TATKAL tickets at heavy premium for customers. In the process genuine customers are left high and dry. I want to lodge a complain against them.Where and how do I complain?

can someone explain this to me. During Tatkal booking today I repeatedly got this message.
"Berth option must be opted for Premium Tatkal Quota"
As I understand this is the type for berth requirement that needs to be filled like L,M,U etc. but inspite of choosing it I kept getting this message.
Am I missing something?

I wonder why they stop giving tkts. after a certain WL. All the WLs are certain to get confirmed on 15274 GKP RXL 3A for 9th dec. and yet further passengers are unable to book. A loss for IR and passengers both.

Nov 12 2015 (09:46)   Now, book tickets 30 minutes prior to departure of train

NEW DELHI: Come November 12, you can book a railway ticket online 30 minutes prior to the departure of a train.
In a passenger-friendly move, Railways has also made changes in its system of preparation of chart, which would now be prepared twice.
First reservation chart would be prepared four hours prior to departure of a train while second and final one, 30 minutes before the train departs, a senior Railway official said.
to the revised rules, booking will be allowed on internet as well as at reservation counters for a particular train, subject to availability of berths, even after the preparation of first reservation chart.
Railways has also made it mandatory for the concerned department to finalise the reservation chart four hours before the departure of train from November 12 in order to facilitate passengers to know the status of their ticket and plan their journey well in time.
This is a significant move to provide additional booking facilities enabling passengers to buy tickets even after the preparation of reservation charts, the official said.
A second and final chart of reservations will be made available before departure of train and handed over to onboard ticket checking staff.
This exercise will ensure optimum utilisation of train accommodation as well as enhanced earnings, the official said.
Also, there were complaints of delay in finalisation of reservation chart giving scope to touts for indulging in illegal ticketing activities.

This will be an excellent system if the entire quota is released during the 1st chart preparation and only confirmed tkts are allowed upto the 2nd chart preparation. clarification awaited over this.

Aug 14 2014 (12:24)   IRCTC Now Capable of Handling 7,200 Ticket Bookings Per Minute | NDTV Gadgets

The tedious experiences of booking train tickets through the IRCTC website may have become a thing of the past, as the Indian Railways on Wednesday launched its next-generation e-ticketing system that features an enhanced booking capacity of 7,200 tickets per minute, and is said to be both faster and easier to use. "It was a rail budget commitment which was fulfilled today," Railway Minister Sadanand Gowda said after launching the next generation e-ticketing system in New Delhi.
The new system developed by Centre for Railway information Systems (CRIS) with an estimated cost of Rs. 180 crore would allow booking of 7,200 tickets per minute against 2,000 tickets per minute possible with the old system.
with the launch of the system, 120,000 concurrent users can book e-tickets simultaneously now, against the earlier capacity of 40,000 concurrent users at a time.

Expressing his happiness on the successful implementation of the faster e-ticketing system which was part of the Rail Budget proposal, Gowda said "budget was presented two months and five days ago in Parliament, and today we are launching [the upgraded service]."
He hoped with this pace all budget proposals would be implemented before the next budget though there are only six months left for the next year budget.
Besides e-ticketing, Gowda launched a series of IT-enabled initiatives for rail users including train enquiry mobile application and Go-India smart card.
Online system like e-Demand and e-Diversion for freight service was also launched by Gowda to enable the booking of wagons and making of payments without going to counters.
"Railways is part and parcel of development. It is in the mind of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. PM said all operational part of railways should be covered through online system," the Railway minister said.
Emphasising state-of-the-art solution in rail sector to bring about operational efficiency, Gowda said "I have envisaged hospital management information system for the railway staff."
He also suggested education to children of railway staff through optic fibre cable network.
Gowda also announced cash awards of Rs. 5 lakh and Rs. 2.5 lakh for CRIS and IRCTC respectively for their commendable work.
