This is very simple concept of ECONOMICS - "More the demand - High the Price".
But at-least the supplier must give the same product who pays highest price.
In so called PREMIUM TRAINS of IR where fares are dynamic and rate increases as seats start getting filled, and when last few confirm berths are available- the rate will be highest, and when
it comes to RAC it will not lower the rate. So despite paying highest fare RAC passenger will get half of the berth, and there will be very very least chances of confirmation as these tickets are NON REFUNDABLE.
So who pays the highest fare- get the least product.
Wah Wah gr8 IR.

Very true. RAC should be vanished from Premium train as cancellation will be rare(No refund).
Other IMP thing, punctuality of Premium train. Now as day Premium Train getting late more that 3 hrs even upto 9 hrs also. Premium Train, Premium Fair & Premium Schedule - success MATRA of premium train.

Railways is a Business too.
And the Main Motto of Business is always - Most Profit with Least Investment and Resources Involved.
Railway is Earning Fare of 2 Adults in a Single Berth, I guess Railway Will never Scrap it.
