Revised Train Fares Details For Bangalore

There are two reasons for this skew in the hikes. On the one hand, a raise of 6 paise/ km in sleeper-class fares constitutes a larger percentage hike than a 10-paise-perkm hike in upper-class fares. Also, since the existing fares are telescopic, that is the per kilometre rate decreases as distance increases, a flat per km addition effectively hikes longer-distance fares more in percentage terms.
