Railway Fares

Most players do not see Mondays Vote on Account being a key near term trigger for the market. The Railway Budget was a tame affair with no increase in both freight and passenger fares, and the market is not expecting any surprises from the Finance Minister either.

While Kharge was not expected to raise passenger fares (politically unthinkable anyway) or freight (given the state of the economy), the numbers contained some good news nevertheless.

The minister announced 17 new premium trains and 38 express trains, but did not announce anything on freight rate or passenger fare. He said that extending rail connectivity to the North East states has been the focus area, adding that Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh are set to come on the railway map.

In a speech marred by angry protests by lawmakers over the Telangana issue, the Minister, as expected, refrained from any decision on revising passenger or freight fares. After announcing some new trains, the minister largely stuck to presenting the accounts of the previous year and made forecasts for the next financial year.

In the past five years, the Rail Bhawan saw six new ministers. For the first time in 17 years, the portfolio went to the Congress. Pawan Bansal did end 10 years of populism by announcing a hike in passenger fare, but soon exited on charges of corruption.

Minister Mallikarjun Kharge is also expected to update the house about new initiatives like railways tariff authority, which got approval of Union cabinet. He would also be appraising his fellow colleagues and members of the Parliament about the dynamic fare system.

Passenger fares were hiked by about two percent on October 7, the second time in the current fiscal, as railways decided to link the fare with fuel adjustment component (FAC). The fare was hiked by about 20 percent earlier in January and later on reservation fee and superfast surcharges were increased from April this year.

Budget  

prices being adjusted, railways fares being rationalised, sugar partly decontrolled. Takes pride in dumping "oppressive, colonial" land acquisition laws in 2013, passage of Food Bill, opening up of multi-brand retail, blah-blah. If Chidu is exciting the faithfuls in the party with his loud defence

It is true the government inaction is brining pain to the markets and inturn to the public. But Mamata has no moral authority to say so. What she has done in the last few years as the chief minister of WB? What is anti-people policies as per Mamatha? Increasing the railway fares and oil
