Nope. Sorry.
The TTE can assume that you would board from Akola; the next commercial stoppage which is almost 1.5 hours away from Bhusaval. So, I do not think he would wait for so long for the passenger to board.

1. You are not supposed to board at any technical halt. (De-boarding is still allowed unofficially)
2. I am sorry for my earlier reply. I did not notice that IGatpuri falls before Bhusaval.
Yes, in that case you can board at Igatpuri. If any berth is empty, the TTE would allot you the same and also charge you with a fine. The train
should reach Igatpuri around 11 pm. (Thus it can be contemplated where TTE would be present for checking the tickets that time)
Anyways, you can definitely try your luck. Do not forget to purchase the unreserved superfast ticket. ALso keep some amount to pay for the fine as being charged by the TTE.
If no berths are available, board the Unreserved Compartment and return back to your allotted coach at Bhusaval.

    -@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.
