It is high time the "special"tag on trains is removed....Most railway compartments are neatly sanitized. We just cannot afford to have the fear of the virus and stay at home. However, the special fares that are now levied on "special" trains are just not acceptable. For example, the senior citizens' concession is gone totally.
One can see a big improvement in the Railways. The new trains are very good. The onboard cleaning has also improved. However, the Senior citizens need to be given at least the 20% concession, to keep their heads above water. And as far as the rates of food in the trains and in the platforms are concerned, it has become so costly that it is out of reach of the common man.
One can no longer bear the financial burden. The need is to remove the "special" tag on trains.
