How To Increase IRCTC 6 Tickets Per Month Booking Limit

How many tickets can be booked in Tatkal quota online

In the IRCTC 6 tickets per month can be reserved on a single ticket under general quota while Tatkal bookings allow four passengers per ticket. So you can book only 4 passengers in a Tatkal ticket.

Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Ltd has taken this step after analyzing that only 10% users are booking more than 6 tickets per month and rest of 90% users book six or less than 6 six tickets in a month. It also was done to restrict people who may be misusing the online ticket booking limit of ten tickets per month.
It is also done to encourage people to link their Aadhaar number to the IRCTC account. But still, users can continue to book up to 6 tickets a month without validating their Aadhaar. So keep doing railway ticket booking.
