The only difference between tatkal and premium tatkal ticket on Indian Railways is their cost.

Tatkal ticket is beneficial for those who travel in a very short notice. But there are limited no. of seats available. For example: if you have to travel on 26th April than you the booking will commence only on 25th April from 10 AM onwards!

Tatkal train ticket booking
scheme enables you to travel by paying 10-30% more than the usual rates. The cost of premium tatkal ticket depends on the demand and varies accordingly whereas the tatkal ticket is basically a statregy to book tickets one day prior to the journey.The minimum and maximum charges for tatkal tickets are as follows:

For sleeper class the minimum charge is INR 90 and maximum is INR 175
For AC 3 Tier the minimum charge is INR 250 and maximum is INR 350
For AC 2 Tier the minimum charge is INR 300 and maximum is INR 400

On the other hand premium tatkal ticket is similar to tatkal ticket but the only exception is that the cost of the ticket is not fixed as compared to tatkal ticket or any other train bookings.

You can even check your PNR status for your convenience.
