In the wake of the Diwali and holiday season, due to the absence of ST after the train, the passengers have to avail the support of private bus and luxury services. However, the rates of these private bus services have been increased in the wake of Diwali. Private bus services from Mumbai to Goa, Aurangabad, Kolhapur etc. have been increased by more than ten per minute.
Festivals, the complaint of excess rates being charged by private operators in the holiday season is permanent. As it turns out, ST has made a 10% increase in Diwali this year as on last year. However, due to long-distance ST trains not getting a reserved ticket, the passengers have to move towards private bus services. Private bus services are allowed to lease more than twice the rates of ST tickets for a temporary period. However, the current fares have doubled in comparison to the tickets being levied during the non-seasonal period. In the next few days, passengers will have to face such a high hurdle.
