#NewDelhi: Good news for train passengers. Now you can catch the train from any station instead of the train station you booked to board. The railways will not fine you for this. To change the boarding station you need to change the ticket. Failure to do so may result in a fine.
Sometimes boarding stations need to be changed suddenly. There is also a fear of missing the train as the boarding station is often out of reach of the passengers. Therefore, if the train stops at a station close to the passenger’s reach, it is also convenient for the passenger. And so this time the boarding station ticket can be corrected.
