Sep 14, 2018 10:41 PM IST India India

Good news for railway passengers. The Indian Railways plans to scrap the flexi fare scheme on 40 trains. For the remaining 102 trains under the scheme, the railways is going to offer up to 50% discount for 'last-minute' bookings made for seats available upto 4 days before the journey. There is also a graded discount system being put in place for trains that see less than 60% bookings. Flexi-fare scheme was introduced in 2016 for 44 Rajdhani, 46 Shatabdi & 52 Duronto trains-all in the premium superfast category. According to sources the scheme is being scrapped because it drove away passengers by making rail fares costlier than airline tickets.
