no you can't change it....and since you booked a tatkal ticket there is a good chance that tt will ask for your ID card while checking your ticket. If your ID card no does no match with the number mentioned in your ticket he(checker) may treat you as WT(without ticket).

Every time I have booked on Tatkal, the TTE has asked for the ID proof and matched it with his Log Sheet! A copy of ID card is required to be submitted at the time of reservation.

Further, the rule book says:
"Tatkal tickets shall be issued only on production of one of the eight prescribed proofs of identity (as mentioned in Commercial Circular No.5 of 2011 issued vide letter No.2010/TG.I/20/P/Tatkal dated 28.01.2011) as per procedure explained below:-

a. For this purpose, a self attested photo copy of the proof of identity of anyone passenger shall be attached to the requisition slip.

b. The details of the identity proof shall be captured by the system and indicated on the reserved tickets as well on the reservation chart.

c. It will not be mandatory for the passenger(s) to go to the counter to book the Tatkal ticket, however, the proof will have to be sent in the aforementioned manner.

d. During the journey, the passenger, whose identity card number has been indicated on the ticket, will have to produce original proof of identity indicated on the ticket, failing which all the passengers booked on the ticket shall be treated as traveling without ticket and charged accordingly. Indication will come on the ticket regarding carrying the same original proof of identity during the journey, as indicated on the ticket.

e. If the passenger whose identity card number is indicated on the ticket is not traveling, all other passengers booked on that ticket, if found traveling in train, will be treated as traveling without ticket and charged accordingly."
