Would not it be great if the chart for General Waitlisted passengers be prepared before opening the Tatkal Ticket booking.
That way the passengers can know whether they can travel in coach or they should go for Tatkal ticket if its urgent to travel. Any unsold tatkal ticket can be given as Currrent Booking

but majority of the passengers book/cancel their ticket in the last 48 hrs. suppose i fall sick, or any emergency that occurs may make me change my plans. that cant happen 48 hrs before departure. sorry, but bad idea.

Think of the Waitlisted passengers and tens of quotas which may remain unfulfilled. As a waitlisted passenger you can be sure that your ticket is confirmed or you need to go for tatkal ticket line.

Very Well said sir, this is what I was thinking about. All the quotas except tatkal should be exhausted before preparing the first list. That way maximum waitlisted passengers can be cleared in the first go. Whoever is remaining, should be thinking whether to go for tatkal or not.

With 2 confirmed tickets..1 tatkal and 1 normal. He may be paying more as there is no refund in tatkal ticket...So the passenger cancels the normal ticket

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
