GST Effect: AC, First Class Train Fares To Go Up Marginally

Though major transactions of the railways have been computerised, a few are still done off-line.

NEW DELHI: With the Goods and Services Tax (GST) coming into effect from July 1, train passengers will have to pay a bit more to travel AC and first class.

Service tax on ticket charges is set to hike from 4.5 per cent to 5 per cent after the GST implementation.

Service tax is levied only on AC and first class travel fares in the Railways. So if a ticket costs Rs. 2000, then a passenger will have to shell out Rs. 2010 from the next month, said a senior railway ministry official.
