  1. is it possible to change boarding point in waitlisted ticket?
    i was denied change of boarding point for 2 reasons by the local reservation office :

    1. boarding point change can be done at origin station only
    2. change is not possible for WL tickets!

    is it true?

  2. Hi Amit,
    U can change boarding point for WL tickets also and it is not necessary that boarding point can be changed at origin station only.

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Dipankar,

      I think it won't be possible to change boarding point for 2 passenger.But u can try once by visiting the nearest railway reservation counter, or you can talk with the TTE in the train, that two of your co- passengers will be boarding from lucknow.

      Thanks!

  4. If e-ticket - ensure first passenger is allowed to show his PhotoID on boarding, or else you are doomed.
    Just tell the TTE that your friends are sitting with other colleagues in another compartment and will come back at so-and-so -time !-) Excuse may not hold that well during night sleeping time.

  7. With out informing public Indian Railway has changed its rules of 48 Hrs and request can be made only at Old origin station or New Origin station or Destination Stations. Now my mom has to travel on 28th Sep at night 9 pm and do not have time to change the boarding as the train starts from origin station at 4 p.m. This is ridiculous by Indian Railway.

    1. Hi Ranjeet,

      If TT allocates ur seat to someone else than u can't travel in the train. So u should change ur boarding point atleast 24 hours before schedule departure of the train.

      Thanks!
