Does any knowledgeable person here knows when will the TT get finalized for this, and when will reservations open for this 15030 train?

I want to board this HWH-PUNE Duronto from Tatanager, which is shown as a technical halt in the timetable. Ofcourse the ticket will be booked from HWH-PUNE. Therefore the question is: Is it possible to change the boarding point on a Duronto to an intermediate technical halt station (TATA in this case)? If it's possible, how to get this done?

You cannot board Duronto at any technical halt. Only deboarding is allowed. Since the ticket is booked end to end, there is no provision in system to change boarding point. TTE would allot your confirmed berth to RAC passenger if he finds you missing at HWH.

No this is not possible. You have to board this train from HWH itself.

Any recent experiences with the catering on this Pune-Hwh Duronto? Is the quality good? What about hygiene? More importantly are they still serving the same menu items for both dinner and next days lunch?

Instead of saying that stops are being introduced for Duronto's, Rly should convert their classification into Rajdhani and rename them accordingly.

In continuation of my earlier similar post, I've a confirmed ticket on 12907 from BDTS-NZM for 27/Nov. However due to an upcoming change of plans, I will most probably need to board this train from BRC (Vadodra). Since I'll not board the train at my original source station of BDTS, how do I ensure that the TTE will not allot my berth to someone else either at BDTS or BVI?

(For this travel, I'd booked an eTkt from irctc site)

Please take printout of your e-tkt, visit nearst PRS along with original ID proof, and give application for boarding point (BP) change, Plz note that you need to change your Boarding Point atleast 24 Hrs prior to train's dep from its starting place and NOT PASSENGER STARTING PLACE.
Normally TTE will wait till d next station, but it is up to TTE. he may or may not allot d berth to RAC / WL pax. in case if u fail to board d train at BDTS.
If you r boarding at BRC, plz change u r BP imm by visiting nearest PRS

Is there a fixed format of the BP change application? Is it available online? It doesn't matter to me if the TTE gives my seat for the BDTS/BVI-BRC leg as long as completing the BP change process can officially ensure that the same seat will be available to me when I board it at BRC.
.
It'd be of great help if someone can point me to relevant railway rules about this!

Friends, I've a confirmed ticket from Delhi to Mumbai on 12215 for 3/Dec. However I now want to change it to be upto ST (Surat) only. While I can always get down at ST, is there a way I can get a refund of the ST-BDTS portion of the ticket by changing it now itself, or while travelling in train during journey.
.
Any suggestions are welcome!

AFAIK, if you deboard at Surat, no chance of refund of ST-BDTS leg.

Thanks all guys. Since the difference of fare is Rs. 75 only, I don't think the effort involved is worth the money :)

Dear friends, I'm in a dilemma. I need to book one 3A ticket from PUNE-NZM on 27-Nov-13. There is WL in all trains between PUNE-NZM. Though as a backup I've booked in a train from Mumbai, can you advise if there is a possibility that if I book a ticket in any of the trains (listed below) between these two stations, I could get a confirmed berth (not RAC).

since you are only looking out for confirmed tickets.. i doubt that you would get a confirmed ticket...
The best chance would be in Jhelum Exp on 27.11.2013
Book from Pune to Ludhiana so as to get GNWL Quota, which is WL14 in 3AC and WL1 in 2AC....
there are 5 third AC coaches and two 2AC coaches... so this is the only option in my views for confirmation, if any
