Chandigarh : Due to efforts of Union Minister Mrs Harsimrat Kaur Badal, the Union Railways Department has decided to grant 50% concession to pilgrims attending birthday celebrations of Shri Guru Ravidas Ji at Varanasi. This decision was taken by the Railways Department after personal correspondence and a series of meetings by the Union Minister of Food Processing Industries Mrs Harsimrat Kaur Badal with the Union Railway Minister.            
While thanking the Union Railway Minister, Mrs Harsimrat Kaur Badal said that this decision would benefit a large number of Punjabis who would be attending the birthday celebrations of Shri Guru Ravidas Ji at Varanasi.  Pilgrims Travelling From Ambala, Jalandhar, Bathinda & Pune To Get 50% Concession In Second/Sleeper Class Fare In Period Between January 25,
