Fare in sleeper class of Grand Trunk Express from New Delhi to Agra Cant was 140 INR . At that time per person income of India was around 78 INR per day.
Today per person daily income in India is around 380 INR and fare of same train in sleeper class is 165 INR but in 3rd AC is 510.
they still prefer see there was sale running on cleartrip and goibibo and i booked a flight ticket from jaipur to guwahat in just around 1200, currently fare specially ac fare in some trains are already very high
Free passes/coupons band ker den to kafi nuksan recover ho jayega :)
Fares of airline are not the actual costs or cover operational costs to earn net profit. Out of 180 seats only few seats (10-20%)are sold for less and remaining are sold for higher fares and spot fares within 7 days are even higher.

for lower berths they can charge 50rs extra or even more, but for certain age groups it should be free...for upper berths 30rs or more or whatever they
