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 50 per cent ceiling after finalisation of the reservation chart.

Perfect example of the phrase "Kanjoos-Makhee Choos".
Thank God IR is big hearted enough not to try offering unsold berths at 1.45 times the original fare!
This step of IR reminds of Jeevan the bollywood actor of 60s-70s yelling at his henchmen rough handling the trafficked girls- "Jyada Chamdi mat udhedo nahin to damdi nahin milegee"!!!.
