It can not be avoided.
If you share an IP address with other computers in a network, all the bookings from the network will be treated as booking from same IP address

Yes, felt very sad looking at such scenes in this train. These guys were drinking water and tea, while at the same time there was someone behind them urinating. The train guard were shooing away many passengers who were trying to board the train, and most of the overcrowded coaches were closed from inside.

Recently, I booked a reservation ticket (SL class) from Thanjavur to Chennai in Uzhavan exp. with boarding at Kumbakonam (next station). But I boared at Thanjavur itself and travelled in the same train in SL class. I was objected by TTE and asked to pay fine for the journey from Thanjavur to Kumbakonam. I did't pay fine and argued that my ticket is valid from Thanjavur and I paid the cost.
Am I correct or not?

No, your argument is not valid, since you are surrendering your right to occupy the seat/berth by selecting a different station as boarding point, at the time of booking the ticket. So the Railways had the right to allot your seat/berth for any other passengers upto your boarding point and your right to use your seat/berth arises only from your boarding point.

I dont think 'Current Reservation' facility will be available for premium trains since booking is allowed only through IRCTC and not through Counters for premium trains.

In my opinion, Premium trains Should run only Sleeper and 3 AC classes. Its waste to Buy Dynamic fare ticket in 2A Class as it would get equal to cost of a Low Fare Airline.

If passengers are willing to pay, why shouldnt IR have 2A coaches too in premium trains?
