Are most of the Tatkal quota berths in 2 AC lower or upper berths? I am not referring to any train in particular. But I want to know what generally happens. Do the Tatkal ticket holders in 2 AC generally get lower berths?

No No.. Not like that.. IR blocks the nb of seats only and not specific to births.
They just block the series of births and seats from the General quota. thats all. !

Do the seats blocked for Tatkal Quota generally turn out to be lower or upper berths? When people get reservation under Tatkal quota, do they mostly get lower or upper berths?

Tatkal is a mix of all seats, not necessarily Lower

As I understand it, some number of lower berths are reserved for elderly people and perhaps for women. I've certainly had my share of them...both on tatkal tickets and those I bought well in advance.
