Platform ticket price
The Platform Ticket entitles the passenger to board the train. With this, the passenger will have to pay the fare from the same station from where he has taken the platform ticket. While charging the fare, the departure station will also be considered as the same station. And the biggest thing is that you will also have to pay the fare of the same class in which you will be traveling.
If your train is missed due to any reason then TTE cannot allot your seat to anyone till the next two stations. That is, at the next two stations, you can complete your journey by reaching before the train. But keep in mind, after two stations, TTE can allot a seat to a passenger with RAC ticket. But you have the option of two stations.
