It is better that they double the fares and give services that are in line with what we are paying - users don't want low ticket prices only - they also want reliable, safe and comfortable journey. At this stage, even the low fares are too much for what travelers get in return - travelling doesn't only mean getting from point A to B.

Indian Railways still have one of lowest fares compared to any other mode of transportation in entire globe. Political compulsions probably were main reasons that fares were not touched all these years. It is step in right direction to hike the fares. Only timing appears to be absurd. It should have been done in proper manner in upcoming rail budget.
