IRCTC - Tatkal

Booked a ticket for Sunday night from Chennai to Bangalore on Tatkal.Its on Waiting list.I am not sure of the logic behind it. What are the chances that a passenger cancels after booking on tatkal.Even if there are cancellations use the normal waiting list. Why create another waiting list for the same births. Just a small way for the Railways to make some additional money.The idea behind Tatkal was guranteed Tickets at the last minute for a price.For one you are opening it up 5 days in advance. And now a waiting list.It is Crazy.

I am in Limbo now whether to go ahead and cancel it or wait another day.
