NCR is Pride of IR

In 2004,
Fare in sleeper class of Grand Trunk Express from New Delhi to Agra Cant was 140 INR . At that time per person income of India was around 78 INR per day.

Today per person daily income in India is around 380 INR and fare of same train in sleeper class is 165 INR but in 3rd AC is 510.

My simple question is -

If Indian Railway is reducing subsidized sleeper coaches and increasing profitable 3rd AC coach then what wrong in it. If it can be called as limiting the options from poor peoples then how they used to manage in 2004 when they need to pay around twice amount of average daily salary of per person in India for travelling in sleeper class?

If you are not having any earning source and you need to ask money from others for bread and butter and take debt for your bread and butter then will you donate that debt money to others? If no then how can you expect that railway should keep herself in loss but not stop the subsidy to poor peoples.

I am not against with rights of poor peoples because i can also be poor some day but what can we do? If it is really a big problem then government can provide additional subsidy in train fare to poor people(Not by ministry of railway).

I request you all that please don't call me fascist. I will be agree with you in case you will be able to satisfy me that how poor peoples manage to travel in 2004.

You have not added the inflation rate.
The value of rs 100 in 2004 is equivalent to 333.16 rs in 2022.

If you are considering the affordability on an average, it has gone down and not up for lower income class people.

But, I like Ac trains as they provide me convenience in travelling. So, I dont have any opinion on the actual topic ie reduction of sleeper coaches.

Instead of reducing the sleeper and general coaches why not increase the fare of general and sleeper class. Increase ac coaches at the cost of sleeper coaches in only those trains where sleeper is having mild booking and ac class is seeing heavy WL regularly.
In place of converting memu to special and passenger /fast passenger trains to express with out increase in avg speed why not directly increase the fare of ordinary trains single journey/MST travel
