Mr Railway Minister, this feels like extortion; why not have a small hike across the board?

It takes political courage to hike passenger fares. Since Suresh Prabhu has proved, like PM Narendra Modi, that he is not averse to taking risks, he should have gone for hike for all classes in all trains. #InMyOpinion #Indian Railways #Railway Minister #Rajdhani #Duronto #Air fare #PM Narendra Modi #Suresh Prabhu #Surge pricing

Indian Railways' surge pricing: Why strategy for premium trains is myopic and bad move

But in the long run, it will turn them away #Indian Railways #Business Strategy #Rajdhani #Duranto #Suresh Prabhu #passenger traffic #ticket fares #Surge pricing #Jan Shatabdi
