be levied in full separately. The 10% discount shall also be applicable for allotment of vacant berths due to non-turned up of passengers in the trains. From 9.9.2016 o¬nwards, Rajdhani/ Shatabdi/ Duronto tickets are being sold o¬n the flexi fare system. These tickets will be available o¬n current counters as well as through “E” ticketing. Passengers can buy these tickets through current counters or through IRCTC also up to 30 minutes before the scheduled departure of the train.
Railways have also decided to reduce the earmarked Tatkal quota to 10% of the total classwise accommodation.

Congratulations paxs!
after a very long time there is talk of reduction of fares (although on the already escalated ones), else almost every new happening was leading to further increment of fares, directly or indirectly!!
What will be the last minute fare if less than 10% seats are sold in Raj/Shat/Duronto i.e. last ticket sold on normal fare. If 10% discount applied, the last minute fare shall be 10% lesser than normal fare!

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
