Train fare hike from today

With effect from Monday, rail fares across all passenger classes will become costlier. In a first in over a decade, Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal on January 10 hiked the fares across all passenger classes, with an aim to net in Rs 6,600 crore a year for the railways. The decision came almost a month ahead of the Budget.
