Also the Customer should have Original Photo identity proof of one of the passenger traveling in the Ticket.
For getting these facilities, customer can now approach the nearest Railway Reservation Office with ‘Electronic Reservation Slip’ print out and photo identity proof in original of one of the passenger travelling in the ticket at least 24 hours before the scheduled departure of train as per extant Railway rules.
Please note that reservation offices can change ‘Boarding Station’ & ‘Passenger Name’ against a request from the passenger as per extant railway rules applicable to other face to face counter booked tickets.
Bonus Tip : If you have already booked the train tickets at railway reservation counter. do you want to cancel it without going to railway station then checkout Partial cancellation of train ticket.
Note : The Passenger who want to change boarding point should come at least 24 hours before the scheduled departure of train. Even we have missed to modify the point before 24 hours of the schedule departure of train. so again we went to the railway station back to the same railway station to board into train.
