As announced by the Minister for Railways, Kumari Mamata Banerjee, while presenting Railway Budget 2009-10 in the Parliament, the Ministry of Railways has decided to reduce the Tatkal Charges w.e.f. October 1, 2009.
The new Tatkal charges will be at the rate of 10 percent of basic fare for second class and 30 percent of basic fare for all other classes subject to minimum and maximum as given in the table below:

At the time of preparation of charts, unutilized portion may be released to the General RAC/Waiting list passengers.
