        It is again one of dumbest plans from the Railways after the loot scheme of dynamic pricing. The method and strategy which is being implemented by the Railways are absolute capitalistic and are brutal in its own way. Govt declares 32 Rs are enough for an individual to survive a day and then declares Rs 2000 as fare for a travel in 3rd AC for 1800 Km's what a way to go.Now they have come up with this scheme. Who the waits till chart is prepared to buy a ticket. Travelers conducting long journeys are planners and hence buy ticket in advance thus they should come up with a scheme where you pay less when you buy in advance and not Vice - Versa. Dumb Politicians....
