[My query is about PNR 2145567357 for train 12926 PASCHIM EXPRESS]
Normally ticket of sleeper from Ludhiana jn to kota jn is around 450 but in tatkal it cost me 1210 approx thrice of normal sleeper ticket.please decode fare charges

Because you can book under premium Tatkal (PT) Quota.

Premium tatkal fare changes dynamically and there are many factors affecting the price

You got this high end ticket because your must have opted for Peimum Tatkal which is a dynamic fare. In normal Tatkal, the max charge as i know it is a max of Rs 100 over above the fare.
