Preference to Tatkal Waiting List Passengers in Allotment of Berths in Additional Coaches

Indian Railways has modified the rules regarding allotment of vacant berths in the additional coaches being attached o­n day to day requirement basis.

Accordingly,  whenever an extra coach is attached to a particular train to clear day to day rush of waitlisted passengers,  vacant berths available in the extra coach shall be first offered to the tatkal waiting list passengers of that class and there after the left over vacant berths, if any,  to the general waiting listed passengers of that class. However, this provision is not applicable to the additional coaches, attached as a regular measure  of temporary augmentation, for a specific duration such as summer rush.

 Earlier, vacant berths available in  extra coaches were offered first to general waiting list passengers and the balance,  if any,  were allotted to tatkal waiting list passengers of that class.
