platform ticket

There is no truth in ‘Railways privatisation’ claim and thus it falls flat. There is indeed hike in platform ticket prices at Pune railway station but it’s temporary and has no connect with privatization claim.

"Platform ticket price has been increased to Rs 50 at about 250 stations in six divisions -- Mumbai, Vadodara, Ahmedabad, Ratlam, Rajkot, Bhavnagar, till further orders, to ensure crowd control," said the official.
