A common complaint of passengers is that by the time they enter details on the IRCTC website or complete the booking process, seats under the tatkal quota gets full within minutes of the start of booking.

Ticket bookings for the tatkal quota open at 10 am for air-conditioned coaches and 11 am for non-air-conditioned coaches for trains departing the next day. Under this quota, a fixed number of seats in each coach are sold at a premium by the railways to travellers who need tickets urgently.
