Let us accept the fact that there were no hikes in the last 10 years for common class due to populism-TMC minister had to go for having dared to raise the fare and was forced to roll back;
Diesel and electricity prices have gone up substantially-So it is justified but certainly there will be some reduction due to public demand during rail budget-But we need more safety cleanliness and better services onboard

One hundred percent fully and abslotely justified in fact it was long over due had the fares been increased every year by a small percentage such a high increase at one time would not have been neccessary

Hike is justified but timing perhaps was not proper. When for last 10 years there was no hike, administration should have waited for some more time to announce the same during coming Rail Budget.
