Pune, 10th May 2022: Central Railway has hiked the platform ticket price of many stations to Rs 50 for 15 days. However, there are no plans to increase the rate in Pune division, clarified Manoj Jhavar, public relations officer (PRO) of Pune railway division under Central Railway.

In the month of April, there were 332 incidents of alarm chain pulling (emergency chain) in various railway station areas in Mumbai. In this, many people have pulled the emergency chain of railways for no reason. Due to such malpractices, many express trains run late in April. As a result, all the other passengers on the train have to suffer. With this in mind, Central Railway has decided to increase train platform ticket prices to prevent alarm chain pulling incidents.
