After booking of the first 50 per cent of tickets under tatkal quota, the rest will be sold on dynamic pricing under which charges will depend on demand.

The fare shall increase by 20 per cent after each slab of 10 per cent berths are sold, subject to the existing cap (maximum fare chargeable) on dynamic fare, a release from Nagpur division of Central Railway said today.
