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.

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

Increasing fare of sleeper class for makin it equivalent to AC classes is not possible because such amount of care cannot be increased.

In other words, it will not be a solution of current problem since as of now if anyone plan in advance then he can enjoy the sleeper coaches in cheap price but increasing fare to AC coaches will take back that privilege as well. So it is better to reduce the seats with lower price so if anyone get failed to plan journey in advance then they need to
spend money and travel in AC classes.

I cannot provide source but i remember since i used to travel during those days. bus fare from Aga to Delhi was 60 rupees during those days and now bus fare is more then 250.

During those days, peoples use to travel between Delhi to Agra by train only for saving the time since fare of general class of superfast was equal to bus fare.

There was a news in newspaper last month that railways is going to convert this Shatabdi into Vande Bharat. That conversion will take place latest by next year. But it was not mentioned in that news whether railways will continue running Shatabdi till then or not.

Let's hope soon as there are rumors circulating that post compete doubling it might be restored. Since Pune - Bhusawal is gonna restore now chances are of this train along with Pragati to be restored as well. But its coaches are in very bad condition now and needs POH

The metro rail system being developed at present is of high capacity which is required for
, bigger cities with very high ridership and Peak Hour Peak Direction Traffic (PHPDT). Seeing
success of metro rail in the country, several other cities with lower projection of ridership are also aspiring for rail based mass rapid transit system, which could be fulfilled by Light Urban Rail Transit System named "Metrolite" with lesser capacity at much less cost. 'Metrolite' would also act as feeder system to high capacity Metro. In addition to less capital cost, the operation and maintenance cost of Metrolite would also be less making the system more viable.

a) As far as possible, At-Grade alignment need to be planned to bring down the
civil construction cost and time.
b) AFC gates, Platform screen doors, X-ray baggage scanner and DFMD are not
suggested in the Metrolite shelter. This will remove any signalling and PSD
equipment rooms in the Metrolite shelter platform making it un-attended shelter.
c) Zebra crossings shall be provided on either side of the platforms for passenger
movement from the side foot paths
d) Ticket validators could be installed inside the Metrolite train and shelter with
NCMC / other ticketing systems. With random checking, heavy penalty shall be levied on the passengers without a
valid ticket in the system.
e) Elevated Metrolite system shall be planned only when At-Grade system is not
possible. Concept of Concourse shall be avoided and only Platforms shall be used for
passenger area. Station will be at single level platform with an under bridge
(FOB) below the rail level
f) Ballast-less track proposed in elevated sections and embedded track on road for
At-grade sections
g) The train configuration will he of 3 car unit. Number of additional coaches of
train may be decided by the Metrolite authority based on PHPDT in the
initial design stage itself.
h) Maximum operational speed is 60 KMPH, Up-to 300 number of Passenger loading for 3-coach train unit. @ AW31
loading conditions.
i) The road width occupied by the system "AT GRADE" for single line is
minimum 3.5 m outside shelter location and minimum 5.5 m inside Metrolite
j) In case the road width does not permit, one line only can be provided on a
particular road and the other line can be provided on a parallel road also.
