The 15 per cent hike in train fares will be implemented from today.

The railway department said that  there wouldn’t be any change to the Rs. 10, Rs. 20 and Rs. 40 minimum fares in the third, second and first classes respectively.

However the longest distance covered under the minimum fare has been reduced from 10 kilometres to 7 kilometres.

While all train fare hikes have been rounded up to the nearest five rupees, the fare hike will take place in multiples of Rs. 5/=.

the fare will also be changed according to the distance between train stations, due to this change  in some cases the Rs. 10 minimum fare had been raised to Rs. 15/=.

The department said that the season ticket fare has been raised in proportion to the new fare hike.
