i usually go to some small station's booking counter and bribe them 10/20 rupees per head in the e-ticket to change the boarding point and if it's in their hands they do it gladly.

ofcourse you would have to give a written application, along with id proof and it would have to ben done atleast 24 hrs before the scheduled departure of the train.

Thought of sharing My recent experience on the subject.

We did reserved E-Ticket from Tirumangalam to Mysore and we wanted to Board at Madurai Jn instead.

Based on this thread, we went to Madurai Jn[1 Day before Boarding] and asked the person in enquiry counter the formality to change the boarding Station .

He told nothing is needed and we can board with the same ticket from Madurai Jn as it's just 10 Minutes train journey from our "Boarding Point as per ticket" to Madurai Jn

We boarded on the next day from Madurai Jn with the original ticket and absolutely no issues.

FYI, This is 2Tier A/C.

I am not sure Sir. I did booked E-Ticket from Tirumangalam[TMQ] to Mysore[MYS] but we decided to roam around Madurai a bit more and wanted to board the train From Madurai itself instead of Travelling to Tirumangalam and it worked well for us.

FYI, We already Travelled back from Madurai to Mysore last week.

Hi,
What did you do finally. I am in the sale dilemma. Please suggest.

PRS not acccepting application to change boarding station

I bought a ticket with PNR No. 4330724498 for Katpadi-Lucknow journey on 12522/RAPTISAGAR.

The train arrives at Katpadi at around 2100 hr and than at Chennai at about 2320 hr. I want to board the train from Chennai (at 2320 hr) instead of Katpadi.

When I approached the local PRS for change of bording station I was told that the boarding station could not be changed as Katpadi ticket was from Ernakulam Quota while Chennai was from Chennai quota.

What should be my course of action?

Many people try to use this to beat the location/sector based quotas to get Reservation and the railways know it. That is the reason why they refused. Though the facility to change Boarding point was given for genuine reasons, it is mostly used to beat the quota logic.

What you should do?

catch the train at Katpadi/rebook from Chennai/chose another train

No. The only way you can possibly change the boarding station is by going to the ralway reservation counter physically.

##This refusal is correct, but this type of refusal happens only within the jurisdiction of Southern Railways.

Thanks. I think I will send one of the passengers to board the train at Katpadi. He will keep the TTE pacified. When the train reaches Chennai two hours later others will climb in.

What say guys?
