Mamata Banerjee has had her way. The new Railways Minister, Mukul Roy, announced in Parliament today that there will be no fare hike in the sleeper class, AC 3-tier and AC chair car. He, however, kept untouched the increase of 15 paise per km and 30 paise per km respectively in passenger fares in AC 2-tier and AC First Class, announced by his predecessor Dinesh Trivedi in the Railway Budget last week.
