As the festive seasons has arrived and there is huge crunch for confirm berth in trains especially those bound to Bihar and East U.P. So, I would like to share my tried and tested tricks which you can use at the time of booking a Tatkal ticket. Certainly there are other software too which can book a tatkaal ticket in 10-15 Sec. but they are illegitimate and using those can lead to you Jail so never ever use those Software. Now, lets talk our simple but effective tricks:-
1) Always login in your account at 10:59 and 09:59 of Sleeper and AC tatkaal booking respectively. After login, fill in the FROM & TO stations, Date of journey.
Click the submit Button exactly at 11:00 AM for Sleeper and 10:AM for AC.
3) Before login make your mind that in which train you want to book the ticket so that you are not in confused state still after login.
4) Save the name, age of all passengers in Auto fill of your browser prior to log-in to avoid filling those fields again and that can waste your time.
5) Never use a mode of payment that asks for OTP as sometimes OTP got stuck and in that time all seats get booked. Best to use any Password protected Debit card as they don't ask for OTP.
** If you complete all the steps of booking in 45-50 sec. then you could book any tatkaal ticket any time irrespective of the season and Rush.

    @all: This is to formally announce the END of the RailCal app. Due to the information blockade, the app has lost its value, and has been rendered completely useless.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
