The increase in fare will be on tickets bought on or after 1st January 2020 and no excess fare (difference of fare) will be charged from passengers who have booked tickets before 1st January 2020.
Indian Railways has continuously endeavored to augment passenger experience through modernization and provision of improved facilities over trains and stations.

Accordingly, The fare revision for Ordinary Non-AC classes(Non-suburban):  Fare  increase by 01 paise/PKM, Mail/Exp Non-AC classes : Fare increase by  02 paise/PKM

AC classes- Fare increase by  04 paise/PKM.

There shall be no change in charges for reservation fee, superfast surcharge etc.

Such charges, wherever applicable, shall continue to be levied additionally.

GST as applicable shall be levied, as per instructions issued from time to time.
Keeping the affordability concerns of daily commuters, there shall be no fare hike for passengers over suburban sections and season ticket holders.
