With the dramatic Rail Budget and arrival of the new railway minister the proposal of increased fares have rolled back partially. Now the fares have increased only for AC-First Class, AC-2 Tier, Executive & First Class from April 1, 2012.
- The revised fares will also apply to tickets issued in advance for journeys to commence on or after April 1, 2012
- In the case of tickets already issued at pre-revised rates, the difference in fares from April 1, 2012 will be recovered from passengers either by TTEs in the trains or by the booking offices before commencement of the journey by the passengers as per the usual practice in case of such fare revisions
So if you have pre-booked your train tickets don’t forget to carry cash for paying the difference of the fares!
