I've booked tickets with IRCTC portal today and it showed me 6 tickets available in tatkal quota but by the time transaction was finished it was in waiting and I got the ticket with CKWL status that means Waitlisted in tatkal!!

Now as I don't want to risk it as I have some important work to finish so I am going to get bus ticket and will cancel it but if I cancel tatkal ticket I don't get any refunds but what if ticket is not converted to conformed? It is kind of cheating to show available and than giving CKWL waitlisted status ticket. may be some problem in the system but I don't care.

So my question is as they are in waitlisted do I get the refund if I cancel them right now in CKWL status online. or as they are in tatkal I don't get any refunds?

##If somebody had told you that you will NOT get any refund, when a Tatkal Waitlisted Ticket is cancelled, then he has given you wrong information.

##Please be aware that lot of transactions take place through IRCTC within the time-gap (i) when you saw availability AND (ii) when your Bank Confirmed the payment. ONLY after your Bank confirms the payment, your Ticket would get printed with the status, that prevails, at that point of time.

So still my ticket is in same status and will have to cancel it as there are no chances of conformation, so it is sure that now I'll get the refund if CKWL status ticket is cancelled?

They told me that it is refunded if not conformed after chart preparation so should I wait for chart preparation or cancel it now?

Thanks for your reply.

IRCTC website is down so I don't have the number of the train, class is sleeper waiting list number is 9,10,11 (CKWL-tatkal waiting) and it is between Ahmedabad and Gandhidham, tonight @11.59 so less than 12 hours and wont be conformed for sure.

Should I cancel the tickets now, ofcourse when IRCTC website comes online again, really shameful as it goes down more often these days.

thanks.

Really pathetic, website is still down and I am unable to cancel tickets and not very sure about the status too.

They have spend lot of money on advertising in CWG but first try to improve the online services, now people from all over the world are in India and they are not sure what to do when website is down.

It portrays IR as a cheater and I wonder if nobody complained in consumer forums yet.... They need a solid kick behind, cheaters.....
