What your new rail fare will look like

Rounding off of fares and development charge removal may bring down some ticket prices after final calculations are done soon.

A new railway fare formula proposed by the Centre yesterday, in which development charges levied thus far per ticket would soon be abolished on every train ticket (whether local or long-distance) may bring down prices on the local routes in Mumbai. The final recalculations of fares are expected to be done soon.

Development charges of Re 1 are levied on second class tickets and Rs 2 on first class tickets; similarly, the charges levied on a second class pass are Rs 10 and they are Rs 20 for a first class pass. However, with the development charge now removed, ticket prices will come down by Re 1 and Re 2 respectively. Hence, a second class Borivali-Churchgate ticket, for example, will now cost Rs 10 from the earlier Rs 11. However, the fare for the same journey on a first class ticket remains unchanged.

The following are the expected (tentative) fare hikes on your commute:

Churchgate to Virar: Rs 1,035

Churchgate to Borivali: Rs 650
