According to new Rules, refund is 25% from 48 hrs upto 6 hrs before "scheduled departure of train". Does it mean, departure from my boarding station or departure from originating station of the train?

We have received some feedback that the "Nearby Stations" list in the Home Page may be removed if it is not serving any purpose.
This is a survey request to all for further feedback. Should the "Nearby Stations" column be removed from the Home Page? Is anyone using it or not using it? This survey will be there for 2 days. If enough assenting comments are not received the right-hand "Nearby Stations" column will be removed from the Home Page.
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
...
more...
tatkal quota WL#2 ticket.
Who has higher chances of getting tkt?
Is it that Tatkal waiting is filled ONLY by tatkal cancellations?

Thanks for your reply.
I see your point about RAC.
But if i ignore RAC for a moment,
I get a doubt whether tatkal waiting progresses ONLY when tatkal cancels?
Since, The probability of cancellation
...
more...
in 960 tkts is more than probability of cancellation in 96 tickets.
(Also, since i get 0% refund if i cancel a tatkal within 24hrs)
If i ignore RAC, doesnt Ram (General) have more chances than Sham (tatkal) ?

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
...
more...
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 inquisitive.

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
