The Takkal Scheme in your Web site says: "No identity proof is required to be produced by the passenger seeking reservation under tatkal scheme neither at the time of booking nor during the journey."

Please note that e-tickets ALWAYS require ID proof of one of the persons on the e-tickets, whether it be tatkal or normal booking.
The rule regarding Tatkal no longer requires ID proof is for normal tickets, NOT etickets. This was a requirement earlier for Tatkal tickets, issued normally also.
The problem is that there is lack of coordination between two organisations, the CRIS and IRCTC.

This rule is valid for tickets booked from railway reservation counter.
Because earlier when Tatkal scheme was introduced by Mr Nitish Kumar(Railway Minster that time) the rule was person must show an identity while booking in tatkal scheme, but later on this rule removed so you got this message.
