Can anyone suggest that is it possible to buy 'Unreserved General Tickets' for the journey starting from the station 'B' to 'C' from the station 'A' itself?
Let me try to explain the requirement… Actually I need to travel to Lucknow from Ghaziabad but have reserved ticket up to Kanpur only. I will need to travel from Kanpur to Lucknow with general ticket; for this I would prefer to buy ticket from the originating station (Ghaziabad in this case) itself instead of from Kanpur. Because at Kanpur I may face a situation where there is a train departing in a few minutes but no ticket; and you know how easy it is to buy a general ticket at large stations like Kanpur
Central. :)
If it is possible then is/ are there any specific condition(s) or protocol(s) to be followed for the same? Will the ticket dispatcher require any specific details for this? Any constraint regarding validity (period) for these kind of tickets?

Unreserved tickets can be purchased 3 days in advance but only if the journey distance is more than 200 kms. so, i dont think you can purchase unreserved journey ticket for CNB-LKO journey in advance, since the distance is less than 200 kms.

Ok, thanks a lot for the info Hareesh. In this case I can take ticket for some longer journey may be up to Mankapur Junction (MUR). Then can I buy ticket from CNB to MUR from GZB?

AFAIK, you can NOT buy unreserved journey tickets in advance from a station other than the journey originating station/city.

Ok, thanks for the suggestion Sharib; but the problem is Kanpur is the last station for the train I am traveling up to Kanpur... so this options will not work either...

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

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
