New Delhi: The Indian Railways on Wednesday revised the Tatkal charges, which would apply from Christmas, December 25, 2015.

The Tatkal charges have been increased by Rs 10-100 for various classes.

The increase, from Rs. 5 in the Reserved Second Sitting to Rs. 100 in the highest Executive category, is expected to help the railways substantially.

"In case the total run of the train is less than the distance restriction, the end to end fare that is from originating to destination station shall be charged," the Railway Ministry said in a statement.

"There will be no such restriction for Tatkal scheme in passenger trains," it added.
