Got 2 questions regarding Boarding Station entered in an e-ticket.
I booked an e-ticket with reservation from Ahmedabad to Bangalore, but at the time of booking I gave the boarding point as Surat (Surat is 5th stations after Ahemadabad towards Bangalore).
1. Can I board the train at Ahmedabad itself without changing the boarding point or taking any other new ticket (in existing e-ticket
the reservation is from Ahmedabad)?
2. If I am not allowed to board from Ahmedabad with e-ticket carrying Surat as boarding point, how can I get boarding point changed to Ahmedabad in an e-ticket?
An early response will be highly appreciated and helpful.
Thank you all…

now the only way out for you is to get a fresh ticket from ADI to ST, and board your coach from ST, as you cannot board from ADI(even if your ticket is from ADI) it will be treated as ticket From ST, as you have changed your boarding point. Boarding can be changed once only, hence you cannot re-change your boarding point. If you board form ADI, you will be treated as ticketless traveller and will be penalised

Solution: Get a ticket from ADI to ST and board your coach and seat at ADI and pray the seat should not be allotted to anyother upto ST. even if allotted till st you can stand near the door provided if you put a &co with TTE..

Hi Anand,
Thanks for the quick and detailed reply.
Just from a little more clarity:
We can change the boarding point only once and this includes the setting of boarding point while booking the ticket as well!
my case, I gave the boarding station as ST while booking the e-ticket so I have exhausted my only chance of changing the boarding point and now no more changes are possible.. right??

true, BP change while booking or after booking, both are counted as one change(maximum allowed)

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,...
