If you love to travel in train and book your tickets in lower berth every time you go, you m ight want to think again. Because Indian Railways is considering to levy extra charge on lower berths in trains owing to their high demand from passengers.
Indian Railways has suggested that Rs.50 will be charged extra for those who want to book tickets having lower berths in trains.
Taking cues from airlines which charge passengers more for window seats due to high demand for them, Indian Railways too is following the same pattern and is planning to charge more for choosing lower berths in railways while booking tickets online.
But what about senior citizens and pregnant passengers? Will railways also charge extra for lower berths to them? Let’s wait until Indian Railways make an official announcement in regard to the new rule.
