I have booked online Platofrm ticket , The APP works only when your are near a station even if you enter at platform you can not buy , sometimes if the network is Bad which is often in INdia . It becomes difficult . Urge to let buy ticket as Normal ticket , Why would anyone buy ticket if they dont want to go ? I can't understand why this rule is there ON the APP. more

2. Experience is pull/push.
3. No.
4. Never. In fact even if you did not buy the platform ticket chances are quite bright that you will get away without being noticed/penalized. more
