I read a news somewhere that IR is planning to sell CURR AVAIL tickets of Rajdhani / Duranto train tickets on 10% less price.
When that will be started?

Lets assume losses for Railways today (only Eastern Railway here). Taking standard fares HR,SR,SD into account.3A: 110+300+450=860*2100=1806000
PLs provide data for 2A and 1A. As far I remember 2A current avl was 80-90 for 12314 and 115 for HR, Assuming 100 from SD too. 2A: 100+100+100= 300*2900=870000
So from 2a and 3A Railways mopped up 26.76 lacs. Great going. They earned round 56 crores profit in initial months. They would loose 100 crores every month from this calculation

If they have to implement surge pricing at any cost then first 50% seats should have normal fare and beyond 50% dynamic pricing, just as they have did in Humsafar. That's a more rational way of implementing this scheme

One thing I noticed in Kalka mail was how rugged and worn off its coaches are (almost all). With 1996 date made coaches (20 years) HWH as I find is notorious for using so old and rusty coaches for all popular trains running daily be it Kalka, Mumbai mail, Chennai Mail/ Coromondel. It is so weird that we talk of flagship industrial programmes but our manufacturing is yet to be at par with needs.

Budget 2017: Indian Railways may hike fares as Ministry mulls safety cess The railway ministry may push for a special levy on train fares to create a dedicated Rs 1.2 lakh crore safety fund; finance ministry likely to finance 25 percent of the this fund
Passengers may have to shell out more for travelling by train as the railway ministry may impose a specific cess on train tickets to fund the Rs 1.20 lakh crore safety fund-- Rashtriya Rail Sanraksha Kosh. While fares for AC one-tier and two-tier are likely to see a marginal increase, passengers travelling on second class and AC three-tier could be hit harder because of a proportionately lower fare base. An announcement on imposing a safety cess on
train fares is likely to be announced in the budget for 2017-18, which finance minister Arun Jaitley is scheduled to present on February 1.
Last month, railway minister Suresh Prabhu had written to Jaitley requesting complete funding for the fund. The finance ministry, however, rejected the railway ministry’s proposal for financing of the new safety fund from the consolidated fund of India. The finance ministry has agreed to finance only 25 percent of the fund and has asked the railways to raise the remaining three-fourth of the required sources for the special corpus. This will be a specific cess, like the road cess collected on sale of diesel to build highways. The money collected through this cess will be pooled into the Rashtriya Rail Sanraksha Kosh and administered by the railways for a specific purpose. A committee, constituted by the railway ministry, for putting together a consolidated proposal for creation of the safety cess, in its report, has envisaged works of track renewal and upgradation, bridge rehabilitation, elimination of level-crossings, construction of road over bridges/road under bridges, replacement and improvement of signalling system, among others. The cess will likely be part of the union budget with the government merging the railway budget with the central budget from 2017-18. A key reason for the abandoning the 92 year-old practice of a separate railway budget from 2017-18 may have been hastened by the state-transportation giant’s delicate balance sheet. It is learnt that the Railways Ministry had sought exemption from paying dividends to the Centre this year, amid rise in additional salary and pension spending following the seventh pay commission recommendations. A combined budget could free the Indian Railways from setting aside nearly Rs 10,000 crore towards dividends to the government every year. Once the budgets are merged, the financial stress can be moved to the Centre’s overall annual financial plan.

Seems you are having some confusion. These are the coaches of 12583/84 LJN-ANVT double decker as the DD is cancelled due to fog for 2 months these coaches has arrived to its Base GKP for a periodic overhaul as GKP is the only place in NER which has a POH depot and train coaches like DD LJN-R GR and other from adjoining zones like ECR and NCR regularly comes to GKP for POH.

Bus se railway station par utar jana, Station par cumsum pe kha-pi lena kuch... Station ke andar se hi cumsum ke samane vaale exit se 2,8 ya 23 number ka sharing vaala tempoo/Magic me bethana... Ye Tempoo Thatipur Petrol Pump hote hue Baradari Chauraha tak jata hai... Thatipur Petrol Pump se bhi Tata Magic jati hain is center pe... Thatipur Petrol Pump pahunchoge to vahan khada Magic vaala apne aap aawaj lagaa lega tumhare tempoo ya magic me... yaha se center tak 20 rs...
Agar Thatipur Petrol Pump pe na ho koi to jis tempoo me bethe ho usi me bethe rehna, 5 minute baad Baradari Chauraha aaega... Vahan se to har 2-5 minute me sharing jaega... yaha se center tak 15
Vese to Petrol pump se hi mil jana chaahiye...
