Is reservation tickets (SL, 3A, 2A) of Mail/Express vaild to travel in Suburban (Mumbai) trains? Please do guide, I usually buy separate ticket for journey.
Really, when did this rule start? I wasn't aware.
Onboard a Suburban train , there will no TC or ticket checking.
Only checking will be done when u alight your train at any station.
At station premises, TC checks the Ticket and that only thing matters to him is Date of Journey on ticket and is the Alighting station is correct or not.
You have booked Ticket till dadar for a Express train,

In the old days, there used to be a 'rules' section in the zonal time tables for Western and Central railways. I remember reading about this rule in them
