Indian Railways introduced flexi-fare on premium trains like Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains on September 9, 2016.
Good news for Indian Railways train travellers! In a relief for passengers travelling between New Delhi (NDLS) and Chandigarh (CDG) in the scorching summer from Indian Railways trains, the national transporter will not be charging flexi fare or dynamic price system on certain trains. Indian Railways has scrapped flexi fare for Chandigarh Shatabdi, as per a Dainik Bhaskar report. Passengers travelling from Train number 12045 NDLS CDG SHATABDI and Train number 12046 CDG NDLS SHATABDI will no longer require to pay flexi fare.
Shatabdi fare: As per the new Indian Railways rules, Chandigarh Shatabdi fare has been fixed between Rs 575 to Rs 595. The ticket fare of train number 12046 CDG NDLS SHATABDI is Rs 575. Train number 12045 NDLS CDG SHATABDI, which departs from New Delhi at 19.15 and reaches Chandigarh Jn at 22.45, will cost you Rs 595. Earlier, Chandigarh Shatabdi fare shot up to Rs 850 to Rs 900 due to flexi fare.
Last year ahead of Diwali, Indian Railways decided to scrap the flexi fare in 15 premium trains. Apart from this, the national transporter reduced the highest slab in other premium trains. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted that flexi fares would be reduced from 1.5 to 1.4 times the base ticket fare and scrap the dynamic pricing on trains with less than 50 per cent occupancy.
