I booked a train ticket on the Yeswantpur (Yeshvantapur, YPR) to Calicut (CLT). I gave my boarding point as Yesvantpur (YPR). My reservation is from Yeswantpur. Am I entitled to board at Karmelram (CRLM)?

You can board a train at any point along the route, as long as it's after your original departure point and you notify IR in advance. Reservation rules:


If a passenger desires to occupy reserved accommodation from any station enroute, he would be permitted to entrain at any intermediate station he chooses irrespective of the distance from the starting station subject to the following conditions :

  • A specific request must be made in writing at the station from where the ticket is purchased and reservation made atleast 24 hours before the scheduled departure of the train from the starting station.
  • The Railway Administration reserves the right to use such accommodation from the originating station up to the station at which the passenger is due to entrain.
  • No refund will be permissible for the portion of journey not performed by the passenger.
  • Just a note: From my personal experience as an Indian, no one ask for the written permission. I didn't even know about the permission system before reading this answer.
