Hike in platform ticket rates; ‘temporary measure’ to prevent overcrowding at stations: Indian Railways

The Indian Railways have announced fare hike for platform ticket across its network.

The fresh notification by the railways stated that the platform ticket price has been increased from Rs 10 to Rs 30.

However, the railways clarified on Friday said that the recent hike in platform ticket cost in some stations is a “temporary” measure and is aimed at preventing crowding during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Union Railway Ministry, in a statement, said the platform ticket fare hike is a “temporary measure” to prevent over crowding at stations amid coronavirus pandemic.
