Mumbai: The fares of AC local trains on Western Railway will be increased as the Ministry of Railways has now decided to withdraw the introductory offer on AC local trains. Due to this decision, the base fare of a single journey will be 1.3 times the base fare of existing first-class single journey tickets from June 1, 2019.
