I have a 3rd AC confirmed ticket from station A, but boarding is selected at a later station B.
Station A departure time is 8PM on Wednesday night, while Station B departure time is 6 AM Thursday morning.
If I have to cancel this confirmed 3rd AC ticket before 48 hours deadline of train departure, which station departure will apply for refund conditions?

Please let me know.

I have a reserved ticket showing current position as RL/WL3 and RL/WL4.
I suppose that means "remote location".
The schedule departure of the train is at 3PM.
Is there a chance that the
status moves (to say RL/WL1 or RAC or confirmed) before the final chart preparation?
Or will I have to wait till the final chart preparation to see even 1 position moving for this ticket (beacause of remote locatio n quota)?
Please let me know.

I hae booked a ticket from Jhansi (JHS) to Pune (PUNE) and selected the boarding point as BINA JN.
Train departs from Jhansi around 1300 and next stop is BINA at 1500.
Train 12782 - Hazrat Nizamuddin to Mysore Swarna Jayanti.
want to know if I can board this train at Jhansi (since the ticket is from Jhansi)? Or will I be charged extra by the TTE if I board this train from Jhansi (as boarding is point is BIna)?
Please let me know.

Though the Fare is from JHS to PUNE , u have selected BP as BINA . so the chart reflects the BP and destination alone and not the ticket booked location(JHS) . chances are there that ur seat might have been allotted in PQ to some one who travels upto BINA . rules does not permit to board from JHS in the same seat . if its some 10 or 15 kms difference , some TTEs wont mind , but when it comes to 150Kms + , its high risk as if when squad finds out , it may be cause of over charging . be safe and board at BINA for hassle free journey

No . U cant . though u have been charged from JHS , BP s can be changed from BINA onwards but not to JHS(as fas as i know). better just board d coach and stand at the door side and if TTE comes , just say i came to board to general coach but train departed and by next station i will go like that . most wont mind though u have tkt from JHS . so it wont be a prob dude .

Thanks a lot.
I checked by visiting a PRS counter and tried changing the boarding point. They refused saying that there is ONLY ONE chance permitted, and that you've already used during ticket booking.

If I have to complain against the services of AC coach attendants (of Punjab Mail train and Lucknow-Pune Express train), which is the best contact to complain online.
Talking to TTE on train has yielded no results. Being a frequent traveller on these trains, it is becoming a regular nuisance so I want to complain properly for a proper action and improvement.
let me know the best online medium where complains can be heard and action implemented for above mentioned trains.

I have a reservation in Punjab Mail from Firozpur (starts 21:30 hrs), but Boarding point is Bhopal (next day 1730 hrs).
If I have to cancel this reservation, the refund rules timing (48 hrs/6hrs) will apply from Firozpur or from Bhopal?
Which station departure time will be considered for reservation cancellation?
let me know.

If both falls under same quota, then it should be Firozpur, else it's Bhopal (or the beginning station of the quota under which Bhopal falls).

Hi, For a child between 5 years and 12 years,
1) Is a full berth allotted on a reserved ticket in his name or does he/she shares a berth with other adult passengers accompanying him?
2) What is the fare charged for a reserved ticket (like 50% or 100%) For a child between 5 years and 12 years?
