The Indian Railways will regularly review its flexi-fare policy to ensure maximum utilisation of train accommodation, the minister added.(PTI)
There is no proposal to extend to mail/express and superfast trains the flexi-fares currently applicable only to Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains, Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu said today. He also announced that from April 1 this year, the Railways will introduce an alternative train accommodation system scheme (Vikalp) whereby passengers booked in one train can be shifted to another train in the same category is a seat is available.
He said in the Rajya
Good and welcomes this move.Otherwise IR introduced Flexi fare services to the Passenger train ,Escalator usages ,parking of vehicles ,Food stufs and beverages etc.
When flexifare has failed in premium Raj/Shat/Duro trains, where is question of implementing in other trains.
The real issue is whether IR shall dilute or do away with flexi fare or shall it be continuing the existing flexifare and vacant flexifare seats.
Totally abolish Airfares of train journey in the form of Flexi fares
Reduction of Tatkal quota is again done by IR to extract even more from the targeted section of paxs!!!
Of the 20% seats released from tatkal quota and transferred to flexi quota
only 2% seats shall be at normal fare (NF),
NEW DELHI: Ravindra Gaikwad, the Shiv Sena MP who decided that not being able to fly business class merited a lengthy assault on an airline employee, says he's the wronged party. The former school teacher wants Air India to be investigated for ill-treating him. This after he told reporters that he used his sandal to hit a 60-year-old Air India manager 25 times. The Shiv Sena this evening justified not taking any action against him, despite a large shower of his abuse being filmed. Air India has filed two police cases against him and all airlines have banned him.
Here are the 10 latest developments in this story:
Beware Railways now might be your staff to be beaten with Chappals sorry Sandals if your service is not upto the mark.
All major Airline operators have Black listed this goon and now he can't travel in Plane so took the train. Railway should also ban this arrogant idiot from travelling in trains too.
jab inko janta chappal maregi tab hekdi utteregi
Can Railway actually do that. Most possibly he must have taken a 1A seat in 12952 or 12954. Besides so weird how Delhi Police pounces on AAP MLA in such a hurry but failed to arrest this guy despite 2 FIR against him by Air India. Normal person hota to ab tak COurt Judicial custody mein hota.
Railway staff , airline staff jaise soft nature ke nahi hote. Dono taraf se chappal padhne ki umeed hai.
MP hai bhai or wo bhi ruling party ke coalition partner ka, agar media ka pressure na hota to FIR bhi file nahi hui rehti. Is desk ka Law aam or khaas k liye alag hai sanjeev ji. BTW MP ko arrest karne k liye lok sabha speaker ki approval ki jarurat padti hai sayad.
Delhi govt ke MLA to raato raat uuth jaate hai. MPS ko itni choot mil rakhi hai
Are sab politics hai Sir, waha opposition party thi yahan coalition partner hai.
As expected of a political party of Shiv Sena Standards this was bound to happen. We may also expect hooliganism at Airport of Pune and Mumbai once their hero who taught AI official manners to deal with MP returns to his home turf by trainclick here
