Indian Railways is contemplating increasing train fares in a bid to raise resources after the Finance Ministry rejected its proposal of a special safety fund.The fares for Sleeper, Second Class and AC three-tier will be increased, while AC two-tier and AC one-tier will see a marginal increase in the fares. However, a final decision on the fare hike has not yet been made.
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had earlier rejected Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu’s proposal seeking Rs 1,19,183 crore to create the special Rashtriya Rail Sanraksha Kosh for undertaking various safety works. The Finance Ministry offered to provide only 25% and asked Railways to raise the rest of the resources on its own.
light of the recent increase in the number of rail mishaps, the ministry decided to raise resources for the special safety fund. With this fund, the Railways seeks to go for a modern signalling system to prevent train accidents. Since Railways has decided to increase the average speed of trains, the rail track and rail bridges need to strengthened along with signalling upgrade

comment padhe bina kuch bhi likh dete ho kya yaar, maine likha in near past matlab 1-2 saal ke andar. 2011 me India me petrol ka kya rate tha jante ho kyunki petrol prices 2010 me hi de-regularized ho gaya tha? Or phir Facts apne theek karo, Diesel 2013 se pehle partially regularized tha to market rate ka impact nahi padta tha. Ye Diesel Cars ke production me boom usi samay aaya kyunki Petrol or Diesel prices me bahoot jyada gap aane laga. IRI pe aaj kal comment karne pe lagta hai jaise Diwar pe sar patak rahe hai.

More than increasing oil prices it is the cold treatment given by finance ministry that is more troubling. Sab MP/MLA ko khali free ke passes apne family apne personal staff ke liye aur nayi train chahiye apne constituency ke liye . Usse aage ki na kisi ki soch hai na koi matlab hai.

Bhai tum kya bol rahe ho kuch samajah me nahi aa raha...2010 me agar petrol de regularised hogaya tha to us se kya fark padta hai petrol koi 2011 ke baad to nahi.hua na deregulated ?? Main point to ye hai ki 5 saal pehle jab crude oil ki market value aaj ke comparison me double thi tab bhi petrol aur diesel ka fare almost same hi tha aur railway fare bhi kam hi tha to aaj kyun petrol/diesel mehnga ho gaya hai ya phir IR fare badhane ka soch raha hai jabki abhi to crude oil bahut hi sasta hai as compared to 2011-12

Are dost tum thoda to research karo, Dec 2010 me Petrol Rs. 55/lit tha or Dec. 2011 me Rs.65/lit. ye tha De-regularization or global market me crude oil ke prices bhadne ka impact. iska asar Diesel pe nahi pada kyunki wo 2013 tak partially regularized thi. Ab baat Railway ki, Railway ko petrol se koi lena dena nahi hai. Diesel ke prices 2013 tak regularized the isliye railway ko subsidized rate pe diesel mila or 2013 ke baad jab Diesel de-regularized hua to 2014 me election tha isliye Railway fare badhane ki soch bhi nahi sekta tha or 2014 ke baad crude oil ka rate hi international market me kum ho gaya, isliye India Railways me diesel ka rate ka koi khasa impact hi nahi raha. Final baat, Railway koi fare hike Diesel ke rate ko reason banake nahi kerne waala so ye discussion hi bakwaas hai. Safety fund ke liye...
indirectly Cess laga ke fund collect karne ki kosis hogi jo ki nakafi sabit hogi. 1 lakh crore se jyada paisa Railways on it's own bina finance ministry ke assistance ke pura ker hi nahi sekta.
