Equipped with many facilities, the much awaited Humsafar Express with dynamic fares will be launched today from here. Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will flag off the fully AC-3 service train between Gorakhpur-Anand Vihar from here through video-conferencing. However, passengers have to shell out 1.15 percent more as base fare than the normal Mail/Express AC-3 rate since the train is equipped with coffee/tea/soup vending machine, hot and refrigerated pantry and other facilities in each cabin. 

"Since manufacturing cost of these coaches with modern facilities is higher than the normal AC coaches there has to be special fares for these services, a senior Railway Ministry official said. According to the Humsafar fare structure, 50 percent of the tickets will be made available for passengers on 1.15 percent higher base fare and thereafter 10 percent increase on every 10 percent tickets sold on subsequent bookings. For example, the normal Mail/Express AC-3 base fare is Rs 960 which will become Rs 1104, an increase by 1.15 percent. After 50 percent sale of total tickets, the base fare will go up to Rs 1214, an increase of 10 percent for 10 percent berths then it will again surge by another 10 percent increase for subsequent 10 percent bookings. 

Finally, the highest fare will be Rs 1656, an increase of 1.5 percent from the base fare for the last 10 percent berths. Other additional charges like reservation fee, superfast charges, service tax, will be levied separately. While the passengers have to pay for their meals if booked, separately, the bedroll is inclusive of fare. Prabhu had announced during the presentation of Rail Budget 2016-17 that there will be seven Humsafar Express trains for inter-city overnight journey, with many additional facilities which are otherwise not available in normal AC-3 coaches.
