Railways links 50% tatkal tickets to dynamic pricing


In a move that could be described as “festival dampener”, the rates of the tatkal tickets will go up with the Railways deciding to sell 50 per cent of these tickets in selected trains using dynamic fare system.

“It has been decided that 50 per cent of the existing tatkal quota ticket in 80 trains shall be sold under dynamic fare scheme,” said a senior Railway Ministry official.

After booking of the first 50 per cent of the tatkal quota under the present tatkal scheme, the subsequent 50 per cent of the tatkal quota, defined as premium tatkal quota shall be issued on dynamic pricing which means more the demand, more the price, reports Economic Times.

The ‘Premium Tatkal Ticket scheme’ became operational in 80 trains from October 1 and is available only for online bookings.
