· Other charges like Mela surcharge etc., if applicable shall be levied separately.

Ø No concession/discount/rebate shall be admissible on the above revised fare. However concession shall be applicable on the pre-revised fare subject to maximum fare of Rs.300 for the above sections. Since in chair car of Shatabdi trains seat option is must for child of age 5 years and above and of below 12 years and full fare ticket is issued, therefore child fare shall be issued on the adult fare as per above revised fare table.

Because very tickets being sold in these sections.
Premium fare (above ME fare)+ Flexifare + no telescopic benefits for short distance make short distance Shatabdi travel very costly. Going by own vehicle is often more lucrative.
Rajdhanis are more successful than Shatabdies, as most of them are having an almost full length composition as against only a few shatabdies are near full length rake. Many shatabdies have upto 10 passenger coaches.
