Hello Everyone...
I booked for a ticket for myself and others (Reservation from Dharwar to Lingampalli, but boarding in Hubli, as usual)... The train is Kolhapur Express from Kolhapur to Hyderabad.
By mistake I have booked a ticket for my nephew (from Dharwar to LPI, but Boarding FROM DHARWAR).. This is a distance of about 45 min approx. (from Dharwar to Hubli) Will there be any problem? I mean, what if the TTE allots his seat to some others, before the train reaches Hubli??

Changing the Boarding point is allowed till 24 hours prior to departure from the starting station.
Normally the TTE will wait till the next station, but by rule he can allot the berth to next eligible RAC passenger at any time if the passenger found as not joined.
Submit the requisition letter along with e ticket copy and ID proof at PRS counter.
can be done any time during PRS hours till 24 hours prior to departure from the journey originating station.

i contacted the toll free number and the person told me, that I can travel with the child, but if the TTE charges any amount, I can file the TDR...
Any idea what is TDR?

TDR is ticket deposit receipt in which you can get the refund later.
In normal conditions , if you have a WL PRS PNR for a child with 7 yrs, and if you are ready to share berth for him, there wont be any issues.
But,by rule, If TTE charges any fine for entering a reserved coach with WL ticket, You can't claim for TDR with EFT.
dont confuse with all these and have a happy journey.

I guess your question has been answered to clearly by Nazeer ji.
My advice would be not to worry too much, afterall its "Indian" Railways and there's always a way out of every problem ;)
