New Delhi: Worried over vacant seats in premier trains, railways have decided to make a few changes in the flexi fare structure to attract last minute passengers.
Currently, the fares of Rajdhani, Duronto and Shatabdi can go up to 50 per cent more than the base fare as per the flexi fare system introduced on September 9.
However, now as per the decision expected to be notified shortly, the higher fares in premier trains can go upto 40 per cent instead of earlier 50 per cent ceiling after finalisation of the reservation chart.

Vacant berths available after the finalisation of the chart will be offered at 1.4 times higher than the base fare instead of current practice of 1.5 times increase, said a senior railway ministry official. There were 5,871 vacant berths in Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains during September 9-October 31 this year, according to railways.
If a passenger wants to travel after the finalisation of the chart then he can avail it by paying only 40 per cent higher than the base fare instead of 50 per cent, subject to availability of berths, he said.
Under the flexi-fare scheme, the fare increases by 10 per cent with every 10 per cent of berths sold subject to maximum prescribed limit 1.5 times in Sleeper, 2AC, AC Chair Car and in 3AC class.
No change has been made in the fare for 1st AC and executive class of travel.
The Railways is expecting to earn Rs 500 crore in current financial year from flexi fare structure in 42 Rajdhanis, 46 Shatabdis and 54 Durontos.

Why they are complicating things so much huh!!! If at all in premium trains which are under Flexi fare system now can be run with Tatkal charges added for normal quota and for Tatkal quota also which would do wonders. Surely will fill the void.

Great loot, even the touts could not extract that kind of money for a sleeper class ticket that IR is doing in the name of Suvidha.

See one classic example of how Dynamic Fares logic is flawed and passenger unfriendly. In Train 82505 Pune Kamakya Suvidha Special, berths will always be vacant from Pune to Panvel, no matter how much the demand will be for Kamakhya/Guwahati. This is because there will be may passengers who would have bookings from Panvel onwards. Now with dynamic fare kicking in, railways is not allowing anyone to travel from Pune to Panvel at normal fares, despite knowing that they are anyways going to go vacant. Who would pay Rs 1136 in SL Class just from Pune to Panvel? This is when 236 berths are still vacant. What happens to this fare when these berths start depleting? And how is Rs 822 dynamic fare amount for a base fare of Rs 261? This is not just 40 or 50%. This is more than 3 times the base fare. So railways is ensuring...
more...
that the berths remain vacant and no one travels.
