IF your ticket is from A to C and passes via B, then get the boarding boading point changed to B at least 24 hours before.
If your ticket is from A to C and B is before A(not between A and C), then buy a general class ticket and pay the fare from B to A.
This is applicable for all trains other than Duruntos.

Need help in understanding the calculation done in arriving at the ticket charges levied for senior citizens.
I booked two separate tickets for two ladies ,one of them is senior citizen, from Usmanabad to Dadar. The fare summary shows fare as Rs.497 plus reservation charges as Rs.25 and superfast charges as Rs.30 making a total charge as Rs.552. In case of Senior citizen the charge levied is Rs.319. These charges are besides the IRCTC charge of Rs.20. Applying the 50% rate for SRCTZNW I could not arrive at the figure of Rs.319. 50% of 497 is 249 plus 25+30 makes it Rs.304.

Dear Sir,
As I understand lower birth quota is for Senior citizens and ladies above 45 travelling alone.
Is the condition of travelling alone is applicable to both senior citizens and women above 45?
Is the quota available to two senior citizens travelling together. They can be Husband and wife. If not the purpose of providing quota for them is defeated as inconvenience

is not reduced by having another senior citizen travelling along?

Whatever may be your conclusion and I do not know what logic the IR had applied but it is a fact that Sr. Citizen or exceeding 45 years lady is considered for respective Quota only and only when he / she is along on a PNR.

It is impossible to book a Tatkal ticket using IRCTC site. One can not get through for 15/20 minutes at 8am and after that one can only get wait listed. can some body suggest a way out other than going to an agent.

Yes...from 8am to 8.20 am, daily this website is slow or inaccessible. This prevents the genuine tatkal ticket booking people from not availing those services. I sincerely feel that IRCTC should upgrade their servers (install load-balancing technology) just like the banking websites have.

-Pre-Plan, Check max seat availability in Tatkal, a night before
-Opting for least preferred train or the one with highest Quota
-Try Special, late and Tatkal Quota fills last (mayb after 10-20mins, u still have chance)
-Break Journey in 2-3 parts
-Different
