The last fare revision over Indian Railways was done in 2014-15. Subsequently, there has been a steady up-gradation and expansion of amenities, both off-board and on-board. Indian Railways has continuously endeavoured to augment passenger experience through modernization of coaches and provision of improved facilities over stations. Further, the burden of 7th Pay Commission on Indian Railway has necessitated rationalization of fares.
In order to expand passenger amenities and facilities at various railway stations and trains, it has become imperative to increase the fare marginally without over burdening any class of passengers. Fast modernization of Indian Railway will be achieved through this fare revision. Accordingly, Railways has decided to marginally affect an increase in fare only over the non-suburban sections. Keeping the affordability concerns of daily commuters, there shall be no fare hike for passengers over suburban sections and season ticket holders. This class constitutes 66% of total passenger segment over Indian railways. Even for the passengers traveling in Ordinary Non AC Classes, there shall be a marginal increase of 1 paise per Passenger Kilometer (PKM). The increase in fare will be on tickets bought on or after 1st January 2022 and no excess fare (difference of fare) will be charged from passengers who have booked tickets before 1st January 2022. The fare revision is as below:
- Ordinary Non-AC classes: Fare increase by 01 paisa / per passenger Kilometer
- Mail / Express Non-AC classes: Fare increase by 02 paisa / per Passenger Kilometer
- AC classes- Fare increase by 04 paisa / per Passenger Kilometer
- Suburban fare and Season tickets: No increase
