WHAT IS A BOARDING POINT?
You can choose a boarding point, from where you will board the train. This can be any station between the Reservation From station and Reservation Upto station. By default, you Reservation From station is also your boarding point. While you may choose a boarding point as any station on the route of the train, you would have to pay the fare as applicable for Reservation From – Reservation To stations. For example, if you are booking a ticket from Mumbai Central to New Delhi and choose the boarding point as Kota Jn, then you can board the train only at Kota Jn and not between Mumbai Central and Kota Jn. You would however have to pay the fare for Mumbai Central to New Delhi. While booking your ticket, you may also find multiple stations within a city. In such cases, it becomes imperative to choose the station form where you would board the train. For example, in case of Mumbai you may need to choose a boarding station from amongst Mumbai Central, Dadar, Bandra, Vashi etc. while for New Delhi you may need to amongst New Delhi, Old Delhi, Hazrat Nizamuddin, etc.
