Hello arunshejwal, welcome to MySwissAlps!

Yes, you can receive the Swiss Half Fare Card and Swiss Family Card through e-mail, print it, and use it immediately on arrival. You do not need to validate it in Tirano. The easiest option is to visit en. After filling out your address, they will show the delivery options. Pick "Online Ticket" from the bottom of the list. They will e-mail the cards within 1 to 3 business days (no delivery fees).

Have a good trip!
