IRCTC Tatkal was trending on Twitter as the website was down on Thursday morning and people were not able to book tickets through IRCTC website.
Tatkal is a ticket booking system by the IRCTC website which enables the customer to book ticket in emergency one day before on a premium price.
As thousands of people responded on Twitter expressing their ire, the issue became a trending topic. People took to Twitter to complain about the IRCTC server being down at the peak time.
The website was not responding and the screen displayed site maintenance message which stated, "Due to maintenance activity E-Ticketing is not available please try later for cancellation/ file TDS."
