kokan-railway1Mumbai: Where at one hand Railway authorities have given great relief to Mumbaikars by rolling back fare hike, on another side Konkan people will be suffering due to increase in rail fares.

Passenger trains to Konkan will see Rs 10-15 hike where freight train rates will be hiked of Rs 35. This hike in price will disappoint those who travel to Konkan every year for Ganesh festival.

Konkan railways are benefiting more than Konkan people to travelers from South and North India. Travelers from Konkan have to travel in rush due to less numbers of trains. Konkan railway earns maximum revenue during Ganesh Festival hence increase in rate of fare will hit people adversely.

Commuters prefer Konkan Railway over MSRTC buses as an economical mode of transport. Hence, their organization is demanding roll back of this fare hike.
