I did a booking (on cleartrip) from howrah to vijayawada with boarding at kharagpur. But the ticket seems to be issued between kharagpur and vijayawada. Now, on the day of journey if i want to board from howrah itself, is it possible? Do i need to just buy the ticket between howrah and kharagpur?

The main reason for this is Quota.
If any person Books ticket from A to C boarding at B. Main Purpose of railway is to Provide Max Allottment To passenger. They will use that seat to earn money for that Leg if Journey.

This is also used in case of booking telescopic/circular tickets.. say I book from
A TO C with changing trains at B.. I will write in form from A to C boarding A for the first train and boarding B for the second train..

As old practice or say Rule the passenger was eligible to travel between original and new boarding point but long back railway changed this rule and now it can be said that they are giving you a facility with rider.
Choice is yours.
As I was saying, specifying a boarding station AT THE TIME of booking (single train) is ineffective. A to C with boarding at B is same as booking B to C. I hope IR change this rule to allow to board at A or B or any intermediate station as long as the stations are close by (say 50KM or 100KM). This helps in cases where the person is not sure where he will be on the day of journey (A or B) can still use his reservation. This happen to me in the past. Had reservation from Dehradun but ended up at Haridwar. There is no way I could have reached Dehradun in time. Luckily for me they have practice of not checking tickets until Haridwar so it was not allocated to anyone else. Instead IR should allow to specify boarding station where passenger can board any where between. They...

see,consider a train going from A to C via B...so majority of seats are given to the people who travel from A to C..and B is a intermediate station,so some less amount of seats get for the journey leg of B to C...Now if say,at the time of booking,B to C quota seats gets very fast reserved and is regret but the end to end journey i.e A to C is still remaining vacant...then if a person wants to travel B to C,then he can first book A to C with full fare and then just before chart preparation,can change his/her boarding point to B..by this your seat remains the same but your boarding becomes B....but some cases your saying can be true...for eg: I have myself done two times...booked ticket from borivali to vapi but instead boarded the train at mumbai central....and once book ticket ghaziabad to bareilly but boarded...
