6. As per earlier circular of Railway Board dated 26.12.2012, as a special case to facilitate the passengers of Muhakumbh Mela it has been decided if any passenger purchases an unreserved reverse ticket through UTS from any station on Indian Railways for journey to any one of the 12 stations in Allabhbad region serving Mahakumbh Mela and back the reverse ticket will be allowed to be booked upto 15 days in advance excluding the day of journey subject to levy of Mela Surcharge as per extant instructions. In this case also the difference of fare will be collected on board in the trains in case tickets are booked in advance and before 22.01.2013 in respect of above.

7. Other Charges:- There is no change in charges for reservation fee etc. Such charges, wherever applicable, which shall continue to be levied additionally. However, the second class superfast Surcharge shall be rounded off to Rs. 10/-.

8. The changes in fares as above shall come into force w.e.f. 22.01.2013.

9. Service tax will be levied as applicable as per instructions issued in this regard.

10. Instructions issued earlier that in the case of Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Jan Shatabdi/Duronto Express trains, the concession wherever admissible and in child fare also, it will be granted only in the basic fares and that all other charges (Catering, Reservation Supplementary charges like Superfast Surcharge, Enhanced Charges, Service Tax (if any) etc.) shall be collected in full. This will be applicable from 01.04.2013

11. The revised fares will also apply to tickets issued in advance for journeys to commence on or after 22.01.2013. Until new tickets are printed, old printed card tickets will be issued after having necessary corrections in fares made on them in advance. Such alterations by the staff would be made preferably by stamp or in ink. 

12. In the case of tickets already issued at pre-revised rates, it should be ensured that the difference in fares and other charges on or after 22.01.2013 will be recovered either by TTEs on the trains or by the Booking/Reservation Offices before the commencement of journey by passengers. 

The detailed revised passenger fare table effective from 22.1.2013 is available on the Ministry of Railways website i.e. www.indianrailways.gov.in.
