IRCTC website has online advertisement running in it. Adblocker helps us in two ways.

Word of Advice:
Inorder to Book Online Tatkal Train Tickets Quickly We should keep a few things in Mind.
Everyone starts booking tatkal tickets at the same time, You might see some tickets available at the start but there’s no guarantee that You’ll get a ticket with “CONFIRMED” Seat status at the end of booking. Sometimes You might end up in the waiting list probably. The Trick explained here helps you in booking tatkal ticket on irctc faster than the other people, but don’t forget to use your common sense. Trying to book 1 or more tatkal tickets out of 320 available tickets (say for Godavari express) during festival season for a Well known or busy train is like mission impossible.
- So, Never Select the Famous,Well known and Busy Trains. (lets Say if you’re from Andhra Pradesh. Everyone Knows Godavari express and Gowthami express. Everyone tries to Book ticket for that trains) But Go for the train that is less known like Interstate express.
- Chances for Getting a confirmed Tatkal ticket for Day time trains is more than Night Time Journey trains.
