I could not find the answer after a short search, so I ask: I wanted to book a Premium Special train at the Hyderabad railwaystation today. I was informed that such trains can only be booked online. According to indiamike this is really the case.

So I went to a travel agent. He told me that he also cannot book such trains and that only through a personal account I can manage to do so.

Now, is it true that travelagents can not book Premium special trains? And do I guess correct that there also won't be Tatkal tickets for these trains (specifically the 22913, BRC to NDLS)?
