Thanks for posting here! If you prefer to buy the Swiss Half Fare Card once you reach Switzerland, you'd better do so at a border station, so that you get maximum savings on the remainder of your trip. Bern is not on the border. Basel would be the first town coming from Paris in most cases. However, you can also purchase the card online so that you don't need to spend time on visiting a ticket desk. Discounted tickets can simply be obtained from the machines at the station. Since you're from India you can get the card via raileurope.co.in/pass/ swiss-half-fare-card for a lower price than what it costs in Switzerland (see here for all other options please). You can buy your ticket from Paris to Basel there as well. Also be sure to check the Discounts section of the Swiss Half Fare Card page.
The map shows where you will get discounts with the Swiss Half Fare Card. Tickets to Mount Titlis are discounted as well.
