Northern Railways slash fare in Kashmir Valley by 50 pc


SRINAGAR, Mar 20: As a major relief to commuters, Northern Railways on Wednesday decided to reduce the train fare in the Valley.

“Railways have reinstated second class ordinary fare on passenger trains in the Valley,” the officials said.

The charges have dropped from 40 to 50 per cent. Before the relief, the fare was Rs 35 from Sadura station (Anantnag district) to Srinagar. It has now come down to Rs 15.

This relief is applicable across the Valley in Kashmir and travelling by train has become highly affordable and cheap after the relief,” officials said.

The rail services are presently operating from Baramulla town in the north of the Valley to Sangaldan in Ramban district of the division.
