Private Operators Free to Decide Fare : Railways


Railway has clarified that the private operators of passenger trains are free to decide on the maximum fare and no upper limit has been set up in this regard. At the same time, the private operators will not need to seek permission from any authority to decide the maximum fare and the fare can be set according to the market situations.

Let we clarify that railways have given its nod to operate 151 trains on 109 routes for 35 years to private operators. The above clarification has come after few private operators raised few queries before going to bid for the routes.

Government is willing to bring a cabinet notification under Railway act in this regard so that no one can take the issue to supreme court.
