There are speculations about increase in train travel fare. Well, considering that their hasn't been any significant fare hike in the recent years, there has been much development and compared to other means of transport (arguing rickshawallahs and cabwallahs, overpriced flights, etc.) train travel is much better, a small increase in rail fare should not disappoint the daily commuters.

Also, lesser number of new trains are expected this year. but you never know until the rail budget is read out. So let's hope for the best and travel safe.

The 2012 Indian Railway Budget has been very good for Mumbai city. In addition to 75 new train services, there are concrete infrastructure proposals for the long term viability of suburban local railways in Bombay.

Hope these proposals can be implemented. I guess a lot depends not on the railway minister, but Mamta Banarjee.
