LAHORE: GM Operations Pakistan Railways, Ashfaque Khatak, late Friday said he has sent federal government a summary requesting for 15 percent increase in fares of goods and passenger trains, Geo news reported.
Talking to Geo news he termed inflation in rail fares as ‘indispensable’ in order to meet additional expenses of Pakistan Railways given the salary-raise for government employees and increase in diesel and electricity tariff.
