Some of the Garib Rath express fares running between major cities like YPR-SC, YPR-KCVL, BCT-NZM, MAS-NZM should be made on par with 3A, IR is blindly subsidising the rich in such sectors.

not sure it will work out well. all these cities are major cities with airports, and the increase in fare will remove the only premise by which IR can compete with airways i.e. lower fares.
This can however be done in other GR's which run along major towns but which don't have airport nearby.

What a modern begging technique. If any class needs to give up subsidy it is only suburban passengers

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
