Hi All,

I have booked many TATKAL online tickets in past but noticed something that I wanted to understand better.

Today, I was trying to book a TATKAL ticket from Mathura (MTJ) to Jalgaon (JL) for 29th Oct 2011, In Jhelum Express.

I didn't get the ticket due to site being terribly slow, by 8.12 all the tickets for 3A and SL class were gone. Anyways, no worries.

After that when I checked the availability, I noticed that for 30th Oct the availability had few reduced seats than 31st Oct. It means that someone somewhere is able to book these TATKAL tickets for 30th Oct, but I on IRCTC.co.in, don't have access to these tickets yet (No Book link). Please see the attachment. This is the case for most of the trains between these stations.

Can anyone help me understand what is going on here. Will the tickets be allowed to book if I go to a Railway Reservation Counter?

Thanks for reading and any help on this.

Hare Krishna !!!

Piyush

Same with SL class also

Have checked erail.in to see if technical glitch has affected the Irctc.co.in but found even the Sleeper class seats have been reduced a ton....

Would be waiting for someone to enlight this...

This normally happens when a person is trying to book Tatkal from an intermediate train where it arrives the next day. In this case the Jhelum Express leaves from Jammu a day earlier and reaches Mathura a day after.

Thanks for responding. I could also guess this that it may be due to train starting the day before. But when I try to book the tatkal ticket from Jammu Tavi (JAT), even then I don't get to book the tickets for 30th Oct.

My question is "How can I book a ticket for this date, which seem to be open for some people somehow, but not open for me yet on irctc?"

Quite a vague question. To elucidiate on Mr. Aarosh Sir's explanation, book from the last station falling on day 1, then go to the nearest prs counter and change your boarding point.
