The railways are doubling the cancellations charges. One of the assumptions is that it would not allow the touts to take advantage.
Railways appear to have arbitrarily decided on the above isssue. One wonders then what is the use of this 'circle'? I am now wondering that the railways have decided to increase their revenues - and in this site may be a good excuse - as we do ot knoe what the majority opinion is.
Then again in the way things are running one is rather discouraged to express views that are not in congruence with what the people in the government thinks.
First of all when one books in advance - the money also generates income (interest) then again you pay again for cancellation (not a small amount). The ogic that this would discourage touts is vague one.
I am expecting mote ways of increasing revenues from the passengers. Why beat around the bush - increase it (obviously after the elections). more
