New Delhi: In the new year, the Railways has given a blow to inflation from common to special passengers. With this decision, from January 1, the railway fare will increase by one paise to four paise per kilometer. However, the railways have not increased any fares in suburban railways.

One paisa fair has been increased in general category, non-air conditioned category and non-suburban category. At the same time, the fare for non-air-conditioned trains of Mail / Express will be increased by two paise per kilometer, increase in fare of air-conditioned class by four paise per kilometer, increase in fare will be applicable to Shatabdi, Rajdhani trains.

How Much Will Be Charge Now

If you are traveling 1000 km, you will have to pay an additional fare of Rs 10 in the ordinary class, Rs 20 in the non-air conditioned class of Mail / Express and Rs 40 in the air conditioned class of all trains. Passengers who have already booked tickets will be charged an increased fare during the journey. This fare will be charged by TTE running in the train.

Railway sources said that this step is being taken due to the recommendations of parliamentary committees and increasing pressure on the operating ratio. Let us know that a green signal has also been received from the Prime Minister’s Office for this.

Railway’s income will increase so much

After the increase in fares by the railways, its income will increase from four thousand crore rupees to five thousand crore rupees per year. Not only this, it will also improve the operating ratio of the railways.

why fair is being increased

Indian Railways has not directly increased passenger fares for the last few years. The railway is in deficit and the economic situation has not improved enough. Changes in refund rules have also not been of great benefit. Therefore, it is necessary to increase the rent to keep the operating ratio balanced. Explain that due to the increase in essential expenses like diesel and electricity, the operating ratio of railways has increased to more than 98.4 per cent, which is the highest level ever.
