Its the waiting list for tatkal quota. Its same as normal waiting list except its for tatkal quota.

Chances of confirmation of a CKWL ticket is very less so its always a better idea to not book tickets with CKWL status. It will be deemed as ‘no-ticket’ if remain unconfirmed till chart preparation.

Note: Cancellation of waiting list tatkal tickets (CKWL) is possible with near full refund.
