Don't Play with 2 crore people of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region.
2 crore people of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region are overburden by New Railway Hike in Fare. Pls don't play with emotion of common man. Its urges by RTI Activists & Chairman of Athak Seva Sangh(NGO),Anil Galgali who wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi & Rail Minister Sadanand Gaudda.Rail passengers in Metropolitan Region will have to pay nearly double the fare for the monthly season tickets after Friday's harsh fare hike.
In a letter addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi & Rail Minister Sadanand Gaudda, Anil Galgali explain that In Mumbai, the monthly season pass of Rs 795 for the first class has been revised to Rs 1,930. Likewise, a first class commuter with a monthly pass of Rs 1,740 will now have to shell out Rs 2,120 for the same journey. For over two crore people of the Mumbai metropolitan region, the local trains, their lifeline, will soon be two times more expensive. "Second class monthly season tickets fares shall be charged on the basis of 30 single journeys instead of around 15 single journeys charged currently," said Galgali.
Fares of first class monthly season tickets will be charged four times that of the second class monthly season tickets fares. The city local services consist of three lines: Western, Central and Harbour lines, ferrying together over 70 lakh people per day. The common man is already burdened, now he will be over-burdened. So its my request to once again you think and cancel the new fare hike behalf of All 2 crore people of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, said Galgali
