Taking a leaf from the world of Ola and Uber, the Indian Railways is rolling out the surge-pricing model that could kick up a political storm in the coming days, starting September 9.
Rail fares are set to rise across the Rajdhani, Duronto and Shatabdi trains where Railways is introducing this system which will increase the ticket tariffs by upto 10% on the base price with every 10% of tickets sold.
That could mean rising train fares during peak holiday and festive seasons although surge pricing will as of now be limited only

to these three trains mostly preferred by middle-class passengers.
Other supplementary charges like reservation charges, Superfast charge, Catering charges, Service tax etc will be levied separately says a Railways release.
Vacant berths left at the time of charting would be offered for current booking. Tickets under current booking shall be sold at the last price sold for that class and other supplementary charges like reservation fee, superfast charges, catering charges, service tax etc., as applicable shall be levied in full.
The information should also be displayed to the passenger during the booking in case the fare of lower class becomes higher than the higher class to exercise option to travel by the higher class.
EXHIBIT ON HOW FLEXI-FARE WILL WORK FOR DELHI MUMBAI AUGUST KRANTI RAJDHANI FOR AC-II BASE FARE: Rs. 2369 OTHER CHARGES: 501 (Reservation, Service & Catering charges
- First 10% tickets: 2369 + 501= 2870 (Same as now)
- Next 10%: 2369 + 237 (10%) + 501 = 3107
- Next 10%: 2606 + 261 (10%) + 501 = 3368
- Next 10%: 2867 + 287 (10%) + 501 = 3655
- Next 10%: 3154 + 315 (10%) + 501 = 3970
The last price for every class of tickets for the particular train should be printed in the reservation chart for the purpose of charging of difference of fare in the train or charging the passengers of the train without ticket etc.
Railways officials maintain that the present limit of berths set aside for Tatkal quota in these trains shall be operated as per the existing guidelines.
However, no additional charges as "Tatkal charges" will be levied. The berths assigned under the Tatkal quota shall be booked at the rate of 1.5 times of the base fare for all classes (2S, SL, 2A, 3A and CC) except 1AC and EC.
Other supplementary charges like reservation fee, superfast charges, catering charges, service tax etc., as applicable shall be levied in full.
