11020 is rescheduled to leave BBS at 9:40. This reaches CSTM late by 9-10 hours and gets rescheduled from that side to leave CSTM after midnight. So it will reach BBS same 8-10 hours late and gets rescheduled to same 9:40 pm departure. It has been like this for this particular rake for last 3-4 departures. This way it will never come back to normal. ECOR should find a way to fix the problem, they keep rescheduling.

I think ECOR is using BBS-PUNE slot when they alter this train. They should try and prepone it by 2-3 hours. CSTM may find it tough to get a slot to start before midnight. but BBS can find a slot rather than delaying it to start 9:40 pm.

It will come to normal in another 2-3 runs . I guess it goes to pit line at BBS for maintenance that's why if it reaches late it gets rescheduled from BBS

14th Departure from CSTM was initially delayed by 2:50 mins, so I thought it would make up. Finally it self at 00:00 late by 8:50 hours. It is currently running 9+ Hours. Tomorrow 11020 is rescheduled to leave even more late at 23:00. This has been the case for last 2+ weeks. How will this get fixed !!!!!

I have a ticket KGP to SC with boarding at BAM. Boarding point was changed at the time of booking. Is possible to change the Boarding point to any stations before BAM now ? I want to board at BBS.
And a follow up question is if that is not allowed, can I use the same ticket to travel from BBS to BAM in SL class.
The answer probably is NO but wanted to check just in case there has been any rule changes recently.

Re# 1685694-1            Tags   Past Edits
U knw the answer..
U simply need Gen Ticket or fresh booking for concerned stations, if booking been allowed!!
With GEN Ticket, u may inform & request TTE as if can travel if berth not been booked for ur Boarding change leg...Totally on TTE discretion..
Even if he nt allow normally, he may collect diff fare & issue receipt!!

It can't, shouldn't skip VSKP, it never did.
I know too much to ask for but if it can go back to the old schedule -> HWH - BBS - VSKP - BZA - MAS, that would save some time and revive the old glory.

Good news for people travelling from Bangalore to Kolkata, provided one has time to spend at leisure - Where the 3A fare for this train - 12864/Yesvantpur-Howrah SF Express - is Rs.1930/- and almost always its a WL ticket, on the other hand one can try this CHAIN (not exactly) - Tr. No.22884 YPR - PURI Garibrath - Departs from YPR at 22:40 hrs on Saturdays and arrives at Puri on Mondays at 05:55 hrs 3A Fare = Rs.1045/- . Spend the day to visit the famous Jagannath Ji Temple at Puri or even go to the Chilkha lake and return to PURI late evening and then board Tr. No.12882 Puri-HWH Garibrath at 22:15 hrs on Mondays and arrive at HWH on Tuesdays at 07:05 hrs 3A Fare = Rs.610/- Total from YPR to HWH 3A fare = Rs.1655/- only and most of the time one gets CONFIRMED tickets.

Time taken is just too huge. 3 nights !!!! That is a lot of travel time. 18464 to BBS and then any night train to HWH would be easier and you get telescopic fare as well. And still get CNF tickets.

I had booked 8 tickets for a travel between Kudal and Ltt out of which 2 had a waiting list status after the preparation of the reservation chart and 6 berths had a confirmed status.
Hence i took 2 unreserved tickets and 8 of us got adjusted on the 6 berths.
When the TTE came to for checking, he charged me a fine for travelling without a ticket(even after showing my unreserved ticket), and said that if I had a Waitlisted ticket which was booked from the PRS counter, i wouldn't have had
...
more...
to pay the fine.
I am unable to understand the waitlisted tickets travel rule.
I referred the FAQ on IRI but am still unable to understand it.

The 2 WL tickets were in 1 PNR I guess so they would have been cancelled automatically after charting. So that ticket is useless, PRS ticket would not be cancelled so still valid. That is the difference between PRS and e-ticket.
Boarding with WL ticket even when it is from PRS is still illegal though but the ticket is valid :-)

I saw some construction next to PF - 4 and they have removed some buildings shops from that side as well. The booking counter which was right on PF - 4 has been moved.
It looked like a new PF coming up. Can anyone confirm ? Is it just 1 PF or more ?
