I had Booked one E-Ticket under Tatkal Quota.But i would like to change my Boarding station from trivandrum to mavelikara.Please find the deatails below:

PNR No 4402905510
Date of travel : 07-dec-08

As per IRCTC rules, customer can now approach the nearest Railway Reservation Office with ‘Electronic
Reservation Slip’ print out and photo identity proof of one of the passanger traveling in the ticket at least 24 hours before
the scheduled departure of train as per extant Railway rules.

Regarding this i had approached my nearest railway station, but they were not ready to change the E tickets boarding and they were telling that there is no such rules for changing E-Tickets boarding.

when we can change the boarding point jn e-ticket through irctc online. please inform in bookedhistry site as early as possible.
i have booked a ticket fr5om gudivada to secunderabad on 25-12 08 in train no. 7049 mtm express. but i wanted to board at bza. the reservation offuice is closed by 14.00 hrs and they refused to change the boarding point. pl. modifyn ur rules
There should be online option to change boarding point.
Since you have the facility of booking online tickets on tatkal scheme. You should also keep an option of boarding facilities. This will help passengers in travelling smoothly and hassle free.
I had Booked one E-Ticket But i would like to change my Boarding station from Bhawani Mandi(BWM) to Mumbai(BCT).Please find the deatails below:

yeah the facility of online changing of boarding station should be given i have also booked a ticket from dausa to gandhidham n i have to board at jaipur but unfortunately i hav written it dausa. so irctc need to give the facility of online boarding change. i hope they heard it, but not complying on requests
As online fascility provided for e-ticket reservation but it is ridiculous not to give any means to make amendments about boarding point. e-tickets are to give conviniency and ease to passengers however on line change in boarding points is not provided, both things are contrary. This must be provided on irctc sites.
Yes, it is a total pain as of today.
I had to wait in the queue to get the boarding pt changed.
Yesterday, after a wait of 1 hour, I was told at the counter that I have to write a letter to Indian Railways requesting for a change in boarding pt. And the time was already 7:50pm, near the closing time.
Now I have wait again for one more hour after office, to get the boarding pt changed.
I'm not sure what new rules the officer might talk today.

To put it short, the officers at reservation desk do not want to deal with IRCTC tickets.

Yes all are right. There must be option for User in his/her ID to change the boarding station in the tickets booked by him/her, before the chart is prepared as usual.
This can avoid the wasting time of self and other passengers at the railway counter. And the booking clerk also make lot of difficulties to the passengers who reached to him for changing the boarding point.
Also it is to be noted that ticket counters closes at 20.00 hrs and if some body have to change the boarding of E ticket for which the train starts running in the morning hours it becomes impossible for them to reach the counter at 08.00 hrs next day for the same as it is the peak hours for Ticket Booking. It can be solved by giving the option to the User itself as IRCTC website is online at midnight.
