MUMBAI: There will be no hike in AC suburban train fares on Western Railway till December 24. WR chief spokesperson Ravinder Bhakar said India’s first AC local earned more than Rs 7 crore in six months. A railway ministry note stated that it had been decided to continue the introductory fare for six months. The base fare of a journey will be 1.2 times the base fare of a first class journey. The note added that there will be no change in other terms and conditions, and said Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) had been requested to make software changes.
Weekly, fortnightly and monthly season ticket fares will be equivalent to 5, 7.5 and approximately 10 times the single journey of
an AC local. An AC local ticketholder can travel first class in ordinary local trains too.
The AC train has 1,028 seats and can carry 5,964 passengers. It can operate at a maximum speed of 100kmph. The coaches have automatic doors, LED lights, LED coach identification systems (for alarm chain pulling and door malfunctioning) and emergency talkback systems. It does not start if any door is open, too.
The local has modular polycarbonate seats and wide double-sealed glass windows for a panoramic view. It also has GPSbased passenger information systems to provide passenger announcements, communication between driver and guard and coach displays.
Nearly 1.8 lakh tickets were sold in the last six months and nearly 18 lakh commuters travelled by the AC local from the day it was launched. There are 12 AC local services daily.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair.
