Last time the fares were hiked in 2014-2015. Read the line- "In the Delhi-Kolkata Rajdhani, which covers a distance of 1,447 km, the hike at the rate of 4 paise per km will be around Rs 58". The hike is quite reasonable.

Yea.. and tell people to learn some civic rules that they dont destroy public property.. as fares will go up again.

Destroying does not only mean of railway property dge, it also means to spit on the roads, throw garbage on the roads, smoking, loud speakers, polluting rivers, using vehicles lavishly, being too much selfish etc. All are part of destroying.. We have to improve to improve the nation.

I expected this when the foolish presters torched train coaches without understanding CAA. Though I welcome the fare hike, the problem is even those who are not part of the agitation need to foot the fare hike. Highly ridiculous!!

当愚蠢的者在不了解公民法修正案的情况下焚烧火车车厢时,我就料到了这一点。虽然我欢迎票价上涨,但问题是,那些没有参与破坏的人也要为票价上涨买单。非常荒谬! !

Fare rise was inevitable. The running cost had gone up a lot in recent years. Besides the wages were raised recently. So one should welcome the raise.

This increase is nothing as compared to the increase in Bus fares prevailing in Tamilnadu or Maharashtra.

I support the hike. With amount of changes seen in last few years we should pay a fair price for its services. Good move

Passenger fares have not been increased for long. This moderate increase should be supported. For long, Passenger fares have been subsidised by freight charges.
