    Is it fair on the part of railways to go on hiking almost all charges to maximise its income instead plugging the loop s in its expenses. Why can't railways cut the number of travels by its retired as well as regular employees? When they are occupying almost all AC seats how can railways earn more. They must cut the travel pes for its employees past and present there by augment its resources. Tatkal is being used by public in the rarest of rare cases and Mr.Prabhu must help the poor.

      My suggestion is that tickets issued under VIP quota should be charged as Tatkal tickets. VIP quotas is useless for ordinary persons. Person with contacts generally well to do persons affording any mode of transport or can spend anything VIP quotas are hardly used by poor persons Thus this enhancement will not effect poor persons
