I booked a train ticket on the Yeswantpur (Yeshvantapur, YPR) to Pondicherry (Puducherry, ODY) route. I gave my boarding point as Hosur. My reservation is from Yeswantpur. Am I entitled to board at Banaswadi (BAND) or Krishnarajapuram (KR Puram, KJR)?

If TC will find the seat is vacant from Hosur then He can give it to next waiting passengers. You need to change your Boarding point again.


Yes, but you have to inform IR at least 24 hours in advance, otherwise you may lose your seat.
