Lower Berth on Indian Railways may get expensive to book
Indian Railways is mulling a proposal to charge higher fare for lower berths bookings in its trains, Zee Business news channel reported.
The recommendation that Indian Railways is currently studying says that a passenger be charged R 50 extra if they want to book lower berths as there is high demand for lower berths in railways.
Following cues from airlines where the demand for window seats is high Indian Railways too is planning to increase charges on booking of berths.
At present, railway travelers can select the berths while booking their tickets on Indian Railways website.
