Pakistan railways raises prices to make up lost revenue

Pakistan Railways has raised the fares of Tezgam, a daily express train service, in order to reduce the projected deficit.

Following the floods, railway losses were expected to be at an all-time high, and now the state-owned railway company has raised the economy class ticket of Tezgam from Rawalpindi to Karachi from Rs2,000 to Rs3,500.

The price of the Rawalpindi to Lahore rail ticket has gone up from Rs500 to Rs950, and the Jafar Express fare from Rawalpindi to Quetta has gone up from Rs2,860 to Rs3,700.

In addition to raising the prices for three trains, Pakistan Railways wants to take back the private-sector-owned Maher Express, Bahauddin Zakaria Express, Farid Express, and Bilal Express.

Unprecedented flooding destroyed rail infrastructure and resulted in significant losses for Pakistan Railways, which forced the suspension of several operations.

Meanwhile, Railways mulled restoration of all the closed sections in Balochistan to overcome financial loss and to facilitate commuters.
