Here are some tips and trick I use for booking a tatkal ticket successfully.

  1. Login into irctc before 11:00 AM (or 10:00 AM for AC tatkal). Dont try to login after the tatkal time starts.
  2. Save your username and passwords to google chrome or browser ( this is helpful when your login fails and you have to relogin).
