Flexi Fare system - Your Inputs Sought
With the new flexi fare system, only 0.65% of the 23.5M passengers who travel daily will be impacted and it is projected to help in reducing the annual loss by 1000 crores.
With this, 50% of the passenger tickets (2S, SL, 2A, 3A and CC) in trains Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duranto will not be subsidised while the remaining 50% tickets will continue to receive the subsidy.
The idea is to not reduce the subsidy for travelers who cannot afford to pay more and charge only those who can afford to pay in case of delayed booking.
We are open to your inputs on other ways of modifying fares through which the loss of Railways can be reduced by 1000 crores while improving services and infrastructure.
We look forward to your inputs! more
