The Indian Railways today clarified that the increase in the cost of platform tickets by Pune junction has been done to ensure social distancing is followed amid the ongoing corona virus crisis.
The clarification from Railways came after senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh had stated that the price of platform tickets had been exorbitantly raised from ₹3 in the Congress rule to ₹50 by the incumbent BJP government.
₹3 railway platform ticket in Congress raj has become ₹50 under BJP raj, Singh had tweeted, along with photos of two platform tickets.
