A Twitter user described the recently introduced Bhubaneswar-Krishnarajapuram Hamsafar Express as “Hum Suffer for rail users of Visakhapatnam”. The railways say dynamic fare is applicable on this train. When an RTI activist K. Eswar wondered how the fare from VSKP to KJM as much higher than that from BBS to KJM, while the distance from Visakhapatnam was 444 km lesser, the DRM KUR tweeted ‘as per extant railway rules of dynamic fare, the fare from VSKP to KJM is higher than BBS-KJM’.

The Indian Railway website www.indianrail.gov.in , however, shows the total fare from Visakhapatnam to KJM on 22833 as ₹1365 for July 24, without any mention of the dynamic fare. “The railway authorities say the dynamic fare is reflected in the IRCTC website and not on Indian Railway website only. This is nothing but giving false information to passengers,” says Mr. Eswar.

Railways blueprint confirms its fears: Air travel will be No. 1 choice in three years

The blueprint analyses government statistics to show that 25 per cent of domestic air travel happens over inter-city distances within 500 km — a segment where the Railways was always believed to enjoy a monopoly — contrary to popular perception that air travel is chosen only for 800-1,000-km distances.

A blueprint prepared by the Railways has just confirmed its worst fear: within the next three years, domestic airlines will overtake it as India’s most preferred mode of long-distance travel for upper-class passengers. The projection for 2019-2020 is detailed in a blueprint on the future business scenario prepared by the Railway Ministry, raising the first official red flag over the national transporter losing its upper-class clientele to the booming domestic airlines sector.
