Railway minister hints at fare hike soon

Railways Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal has hinted at a hike in train fares soon, saying it would be difficult to run the Indian Railways without it.

"Hiking fare is not our target. Our target is to ensure safe journey and good services to passengers. We are working out where and what to do. It's obvious that at some point of the time, we have to take the step (of hiking fare) as without it, it will be difficult to run the railways"
