Query on Tatkal Reservations
Folks, it is my observation that even though you get a higher Wait List for Tatkal Tickets, there is a high probability of your tatkal reservation gets confirmed. But, WL does not move much in general for last two days .
Does this mean, the cancellation in General quota will get moved to Tatkal Quota. I am travelling with my aged mom, I do not not like to take chances.
throw some light on reservation quota process. I am travelling from Hyd -->Delhi and vice-versa, and both directions the tickets are wait-listed.

Daer Ashu, Tatkal Quota will not move to general quota unless the cacellations in general W/L are so much that seats are vacant which is highly unlikely. Why Tatkal Quota moves fast is maybe due to agents not finding the enough passengers for which they do fictitious reservations on fictitious names and age etc..Thanks and regards..

Sir your observation is partially right.After opening of Tatkal all the cancellations are shared between both GN/CK quota.A clear dis advantage for GN quota holder.But at the same time the GN quota has RAC chances but for CK either yes or NO.

I'm confirming that current trend of General WL tickets are very unlikely get confirmed, and the cancellations are being moved to Tatkal Quota from general quota.
I did reserve on AP Express from Hyd -> NDLS for 3A on 20/3 with WL status is 25. I posted PNR forum gave prediction for confirmation 15/15. Before 2 days of journey 21/5, the WL status is 8, and it got moved to 6, a day before journey. It did not move till the chart prepared, and at the final chart preparation it got moved to 3. But the Tatkal waitlist status moved from 35 -> 16 before the chart preparation. I'm sure all tatkal tickets might have got confirmed.
very well tells the general quota moved to tatkat quota.
Cautioning you guys, Just beware do not assume even though you reserve well in advance, If waitlist number is low.

I do agree with Ashu and Vishwanath. But would love to get more valuable inputs on this from other learned bloggers.

I completely disagree. According to my observation, tatkals do not move, but wl clear faster. Several times I saw it for specific trains.
