INCREASING IN RAILWAY TICKET CANCELLATION CHARGES
The reasoning given regarding touts is an eye wash. Touts, who do the job will continue doing it; as they will, in any way, be charging the clients exorbitantly, and as such they are not going to loose anything. The losers will definitely be common man.
Now-a-days, Railways is harassing its commuters, especially common man, by way of frequent increase in ticket rates and now with this new rule of cancellation they are being put to much losses and inconvenience.
If Railways mean business, they should find out ways to avoid touts and not to burden common man.
The Railways should think of eliminating the services of Agents for ticket booking, as now there are many other easier means to book tickets, even by common man. If the Agents are eliminated, that itself will help in maintaining healthy Ticket Booking by genuine commuters.
The unreasonable increase in Cancellation Charges be withdrawn in the interest of common man. This will be a better step compared to giving subsidy to Airlines for non-popular routes. more
