Tip is about Tatkal ticket booking:
Tatkal ticket booking at this station begins at 10 mins later. Means AC: 10:10am and Non-AC: 11:10am. So kindly do not depend and wait for tatkal reservation at this station. You may not get tickets as most of the tickets are sold out in maximum 5 mins only.
Go to Veraval station for tatkal bookings.

Don't know the reason, but it opens 10 min late. Self experienced. Nobody tells the reason. Something is wrong there.

No idea.. But they start booking tickets after minutes only. But railway server timings are same all over the country in the system.

Absolutely no amenities, so be prepared for the worst. Even there is no staff except one person at night who handles the console and other things simultaneously.
