I have booked a ticket from Station A to Station C with Station B as my boarding point. Now, due to some last minute changes, can I board the train at Station A? Will I be a treated as a ticketless traveller (I incidentally paid for the fare, though Railways has the right to use A-B leg for some other passenger). Appreciate a response from competent authority or an experienced passenger. Kindly let us avoid guesses, fairness advocacy statements or time pass discussion.

Yes, you can always give a try.
Depending upon the category of the train, you need to purchase a second class unreserved or 1st class unreserved ticket. Then check the chart if any passenger has been allotted your berth for A-B. Also search for any vacant berths which is vacant for A-B. Then go to the TTE and request him to allot the said berth (If found vacant from the chart) else any other empty berths for A-B. Do tell him that your situation which made you board from A instead of B. If berths are available, he would allot you the berth and charge difference of fare for the journey leg A-B. Else, if unreserved coaches are available in the train,
then he would ask you to move to the unreserved compartment (If vacant berths are not available).
Do take special precaution for trains like Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Jan Shatabdi where unreserved compartment are not available.
You may also try your luck at the Current Reservation Counter, if there exists any at Station A to purchase confirmed ticket at the last moment, subject to availability.

No you cannot.
If you board a A you have to pay fare from A to B. generally, there is even possiblity that the berth is alloted to some one else upto B.

My travel is from MGS to BZA by Sangamitra Exp (12296). This train is from PNBE to SBC. Can you let me know where I need to drop the EQ (HO quota) release request? Patna (PNBE) or Mughal Sarai (MGS)?
How are the chances of RLGN against GNWL in this route?
