Facing criticism on dynamic surge pricing for premium train tickets, the railway ministry has clarified that the dynamic pricing is being done for experimental basis and will be reviewed after sometime.
Earlier, on September 7, railways announced that ticket fares for Rajdhani, Duronto and Shatadbi trains will be increased by 10 and 50 per cent more under a dynamic surge pricing+ system to be introduced from September 9.
Ministry of information and broadcasting through its official Twitter handle of PIB shared a series of tweets on Thursday to clarify the sudden change in the pricing of Rajdhani, Shatabi and Duranto. Railways has said that the change will affect only 0.15 million passengers out of the 23 million passengers travelling daily.
