    @pnuts: some stations in some countries have ticket checks at exit and don't allow this (ISTR that there are some stations like this in Britain) – Max Oct 14 '14 at 10:06
  • @Max In india you are allowed to get down the train in the middle even though there are exit checks sometimes. – Kolappan Nathan Nov 6 '14 at 5:55

Yes, you can get down. There are no ticket checks at Indian stations, nor is there any reason for them, since there are no crazy promotions that make it cheaper to travel 200 kms to destination X instead of 100 kms to destination Y.


Yes. You can get down in the middle. There are ticket checks at the exit sometimes (rarely though). But it is okay if you get down your train in the middle of your journey and you donot need to pay extra fares.


Yes. You can get down. I did this last month. My ticket was from Delhi to Kalka and I got down at Chandigarh. I was a part of the "random exit check" but they didnt create any fuss that says it was all legal.
