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!
