I believe almost every one of us have faced problems while booking online tickets from IRCTC. And especially when it comes of booking the Tatkal tickets. Time plays the most crucial part in the booking. The more it takes time in filling in the details, the less are chances of getting a confirmed tatkal ticket. And we need to fill in that details every time the transaction gets cancelled or we need to book an another train ticket. You must be thinking isn’t there any way by which we can reduce the time which we waste every time in filing in the same details like name, age and sex and ID number? Of, course there is. You just have to click on a bookmark and all the details of the passenger are automatically inserted into the IRCTC booking details page. You may save as many number of passengers you want to. Here is how. The video explains how to reduce the time spent in booking hence increased chances of getting a tatkal ticket from IRCTC.
Now here is a trick to make sure you are all ready with your filling details even before the bookings are started. What you will need for this is Magic Autofill. It’s a simple online tool which will fill the passenger details on the IRCTC website with the click of a button thus giving making you ahead of others.
Now how to do. Click on “ctrlq.org/IRCTC” around ten minutes before the time when Tatkal booking is going to be open complete the form on the website – its almost a copy of the form available on the Indian railways website. Once you’ve filled the passenger details, click on I’m Feeling Lucky and the tool will generate a Magic Autofill button. You need to drag this button to your bookmarks toolbar.
Now when you are ready to book a ticket on the Indian Railways website , just click the same Magic Autofill button on your bookmarks toolbar and magic will happen as your form will be automatically filled up with the passengers details!
This happens because you are filling a form in advance and saving it as a bookmark. When you are on the actual form, and you click the bookmark, you transfer the previously filled values to your new form.
There are some forms in IRCTC form which may not have every field that’s available on the Magic Autofill website like food preference or ID details, in that case, you can just ignore these fields on the Magic Autofill site. Try it yourself for any train you feel like or you are about to board very soon.
You’ll also have to provide an ID number on the online reservation form of all passengers when booking for Tatkal tickets.
