The tickets which are booked using this special quota are similar to the tickets which are booked using Tatkal quota and all the rules which apply to Premium Tatkal quota also apply to Tatkal quota except for dynamic pricing as in case of this Tatkal quota. The meaning of word “Dynamic” is anything which changes according to time. In case of this Tatkal booking, the price of ticket changes according to time, demand and the number of seats which are available at the time of booking that is why Dynamic pricing is used in case of Premium Tatkal facility. You will be charged according to Dynamic fare whether your ticket is confirmed or is RAC. 
The demand of tickets vary according to season, type of train, travel route and other factors. Sometimes it may happen that the price of Sleeper Class ticket can be more than AC First Class and AC Second Class. This means that the fare of tickets is based on the concept of demand and supply. More demand means more price you will have to pay for the same ticket which is cheaper in case of normal booking. Very less tickets are available under this special facility. 
Once you have booked a ticket under this quota, you cannot cancel the ticket. This means that your money will not be refunded at any cost. But, the ticket can be cancelled only in case that the train is cancelled. There is no other quota available in case of Premium Tatkal quota like: Ladies, Senior Citizens or any other quota. Premium Tatkal tickets can only be booked using internet on IRCTC website. Agents and travel agencies are not allowed to book tickets under this quota.
