(Just for Curiosity):
hundreds of passengers are booking ticket for same train through irctc or PRS at the same time (especially during Tatkal) but never heard of a CNF berth allotted to two passengers ? How does this happen? I mean how does the berth allocation system work that no berth is allotted to two persons? Anyone?

u mean single berth to 2 different person , since Rilawy prs Is always in conenction to PRS server , it in in ques first , where as IRCTC , it goes in to queueand once payemnt transaction is completed , Berth allotment comes out , if no of berth is less , PRS booking of berth happens faster
