Is the new rule of alloting unused berths to GNWL rather than Tatkal followed in every train?
I observed some waitlisted tatkal tickets getting confirmed (end to end).
If the new rule is strictly followed, then what is the point in issuing a tatkal waitlist? the passenger can as well buy a GNWL ticket because that gets cleared first..

All the unused berths at the time of charting would be used to clear GNWL and not Tatkal waitlist.

The rule has changed now, and its not a temporary one. There was a circular on that from railways, which I couldnt get now, but its not only for Summer season.
