All the Humsafars are more or less suffering from the problem of flexifare scheme. The biggest flaw with this system is that the fare doesn’t come down when the demand decreases, if you want to implement it thoroughly well, then this must be involved in the algorithm as well. Second is that, that all stations must be brought under GNWL for trains struggling to fill up passengers.
