I booked ticket of Mumbai Central - Ahmedabad Shatabdi Exp where boarding is Mumbai Central. My query is can board train from Borivali which is hardly 30 min running distance from Mumbai Central for Shatabdi. Since its morning time & travelling to Mumbai Central with family will be difficult (Travelling time will be 1.15 from Virar by train)
My colleague says its not issue you can board as we do for Rajdhani Exp. Also I checked with station master they says you can board train without any issue. This is most trusted
site on railway travelling.
Travelling date: 30-May-2015
Please help.

I think you can board and convince TTE if enquired as both stations fall in same city. But rules say that you need to change boarding point 24 hrs prior to train's departure.

You can. Usually they wait till the next stop before marking absent. Incase you are still skeptical, take a copy of your ticket, write a letter requesting for boarding point change from Central to BVI and get it changed from any PRS counter 1 day before. They do it free of charge.

Buffer time too less for a train that comes all the way from GKP to BRC. Just 50 mins; its not healthy. Passengers will have to take a big risk opting for this connection.

On 2-May-2012 saw Double Decker AC train @ BCT on pf 2 but no indication.
Yes few officials were writing & discussing something in train.
Train was looking nice Yellow-Red-Yellow. It seems that BCT-ADI Double Decker AC will be running soon.
Any !dea

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
