After drawing criticism for a long time, the railways have scrapped flexi fare only in a handful trains out of over 100 trains
Vishwas Dass | November 1, 2018
In what could be seen as a relief to lakhs of passengers, Indian Railways has discontinued flexi or dynamic fare system in 15 trains having monthly occupancy of less than 50 percent. The decision would also be applicable for 32 trains, having monthly occupancy between 50-75 percent, but only for the lean period of three months.
To increase the occupancy of less patronised classes like AC 2, AC 3 and chair car class, 20 percent discount on last fare on all trains with flexi fare and Humsafar trains, having occupancy of less than 60 percent, will be given to passengers.
