How to change Train Boarding Station [June 2022]: Indian Railways New Guidelines for Passengers
According to the Latest Guidelines by Indian Railways and IRCTC Portal, Passengers will be able to modify the boarding station. This process is easy by using the option ‘Boarding Point Change’ which can be seen after login details are entered on the IRCTC website.
As of now, this facility is available for General and Tatkal Tickets. It is not available for current bookings right now.
What are Current Bookings?
- The ticket that is booked after the First chart is Prepared.
- The Ticket that is booked just 30 minutes before train departure is known as Current Booking Tickets.
Only the e-ticket holders are allowed to change their boarding station through the IRCTC web portal. The other alternative method is by dialing 139 before the first chart is prepared. Which means four hours before the scheduled departure of the train.
