Rly minimum fare hiked to Rs 10

The railway ministry has decided to increase the minimum chargeable fa re from Rs 5 to Rs 10 for non suburban services to make it at par with the platform ticket charges. The decision has be en taken in the wake of people buying the minimum tickets instead of platform tickets.
The decision, announced on Tuesday , will be effective from Friday . It was in the last rail budget that the ministry revised the price of platform tickets from Rs 5 to Rs 10 to control the rush on plat forms. However, the objective could not be realized as passengers started purchasing the minimum single journey second-class tickets priced at Rs 5 in lieu of the platform ticket.
Authorities said the revision would be applicable only to second class non-suburban services and hoped that it would bring down the rush on platforms to manageable levels.
