FLEXI- FARE SYSTEM IN INDIAN RAILWAY IS NOTHING BUT SUCKING THE BLOOD OTHER WAY...

NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CONGRESS AND BJP


If you remember, in 2014 while raising the railway fare by 14.2% right after coming to power, in self defense Narendra Modi had found an excellent excuse that this raise was proposed by UPA govt. and he is merely executing it. Also, the hike in fare was dubbed as a bitter pill smartly by him which he and the railway Minister claimed was important for providing better amenities to the public. If the new government is to follow the steps of the previous government then what is the difference then. 

ACHCHE DIN had begun well with train fare hike for the Indians!! And people are still awaiting Achche din after two and half years.

Later in the form of classic amenities, the pantry cars from several long distance trains that used to be handy for the passengers had been replaced by e-catering. Are they out of their minds to imagine that every passenger is internet savvy? Does every person have internet on his/her phone? But who cares in India? 

AIR INDIA TAKING ADVANTAGE OF FLEXI-FARE SYSTEM IN TRAINS

The concept of Surge pricing system in flights in the times of Congress and Uber and Ola cabs' bookings in the times of BJP has already rattled Indians since it compels people to pay more than what is to be paid for commuting one place to other destination. What would one do in such a situation? Nothing but pay helplessly in reluctance.  Though, Indian Railways has faced stiff criticism against this system but it justifies it adamantly. How can this blood sucking be allowed and justified by these vampires really amazes me? 

Now the implementation of flexi-fare in Indian railways is going to bleed passengers further more. Majorly, it is going to hit poor and middle class hard where it hurts them more as they would find tough time to get them reservations. 


Instead of giving the relief to the people, sucking their blood off in the name of development and running the government like previous regime is what it is. I agree with Ashok Khemka in toto as he describe this, "Surge pricing in train travel exploit citizens' helplessness."  Honest people like him must be in Indian politics so that reforms can be brought in our system.

I would not be surprised if Indian buses come under this brutal flexi-fare knife, food products and basic needs as well for that matter if this trend is not nipped in the bud.

You wont believe that couple of fellow passengers ordered food through e-catering in my presence during my trip back to Mumbai from Delhi and see for yourself below what they got in return. They were taken for a ride. The following photos are the screen shots of one of passengers who forwarded the message to me for my post he received on his phone. This is a classic example of classic service given to the public.
