Flexifare on Indian Trains

Indian Railways are introducing flexi fares on Rajdhanis, Durontos and Shatabdis. The fares will get more expensive as more seats are booked.

http://indianexpress.com/article/ind...dian-railways/


In the UK, the advantage of such a system is that if you book tickets well in advance or during certain Sales, the tickets come out to be dirt-cheap.

In Contrast, the Indian system is not going to reduce the base fare for advance bookings. I dont think there is a choice in these matters in India. I wouldn't like to see this extended to other trains in the same scheme that it is being applied to the special trians.....
