tariff structure. It has been hiked approximately by 25 per cent for all goods and the new rate is effective from June 1,” said a senior Railway Ministry official.The last revision of parcel and luggage rates was done in 2006. The new rates are applicable to all goods including newspapers and magazines. The Railways had increased freight by 20 per cent in March.“Our parcel rates were very low and there has to be some parity between the freight rate and parcel rate,” the official said defending the hike.Tyres, newspapers and magazines, pharmaceuticals, pulses and flour are among the goods generally booked in parcel service of the railway.However, the hike will not be applicable on special parcel trains. There are 19 special parcel trains.There are three types of parcel rates — Standard, Premium and Rajdhani. Standard rates are applicable on goods booked in parcel service of non-express trains while Premium rates are charged in express and mail trains.Goods booked on the Rajdhani and the Shatabdi trains are charged the Rajdhani rate.
