For booking Tatkal ticket, every second means a lot because thousands of people are trying to book a tatkal ticket at the same time. So getting the tatkal ticket booked depends on your luck. Sometimes it happens that amount is deducted from the user’s account but they not get booked ticket. However, IRCTC does not allow to book a tatkal ticket through IRCTC eWallet. Every day from 8 am to 12 pm, a user cannot use E-wallet to book a train ticket. So if you are lucky and few tickets are left in tatkal quota then you can book that ticket after 12 AM.
