Good news for Mumbaikars!
In a huge relief to local train commuters, the Indian Railways has decided to reduce the fares by 50%. The Railway Ministry on Sunday issued the rationalised fare rates for single journey tickets of air-conditioned (AC) local trains and the first class of ordinary train services.
Now pay ₹0 Payment Gateway Charges on train bookings via CRED Pay and UPI:
The new fare structure will come into effect from 5th May 2022.
The current fare in AC EMUs for a 5-kilometre journey is ₹65, which will be reduced to ₹35 once the new fare structure is implemented.
Below are the fare changes on popular routes:
Kalyan – CSMT: The rationalised fare for a first-class single journey would be ₹100 as against ₹165 earlier. For AC single journeys, travellers will have to pay only ₹105 instead of ₹210.
Thane – CSMT: The rationalised fare for a first-class single journey would be ₹85 as against ₹140 earlier. For AC single journeys, travellers will have to pay only ₹95 instead of ₹180.
