Subject:

Clarification regarding admissibility of flexi-fare in Shatabdi/
Rajdhani/ Duronto trains while availing LTC. 

 

         As per Railway Board’s Circular No. 46 of 2016 dated 07.09.2016, Ministry
of Railways have introduced a flexi-fare system in
Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duronto trains, where the base fares will increase by 10%
with every 10% of berths sold subject to a prescribed ceiling limit. In
this regard, this Department is in receipt of references from various
segments seeking clarification on the issue of admissibility of flexi-fare
while booking the tickets of these trains for the purpose of LTC. 
2.      The matter has been examined in consultation with Department of
Expenditure, Ministry of Finance and it has been decided that flexi fare
(dynamic fare) applicable in Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duronto trains shall be
admissible for the journey(s) performed by these trains on LTC. This
dynamic fare component shall not be admissible in cases where a non-
entitled Government servant travels by air and claims reimbursement for the
entitled class of Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duronto trains. Such Government
servants will get reimbursement of fare after deducting the dynamic fare
component. 
3.       The above decision shall be applicable retrospectively with effect from
9th September, 2016, i.e. the date from which flexi-fare system was
introduced by Railways.
