Railway Station Masters allege train ticket prices soared without formal notification

For the first time in history, the Department of Railway has decided to increase the prices of train tickets without any formal notification, alleged the Railway Station Masters’ Association.

Speaking to media, Union President Sumedha Somaratna revealed that not even the station masters were informed of a price hike. As a result, the station masters who are in direct contact with the passengers have been severely inconvenienced, he added.

The Union further disclosed that the prices of some train tickets have surged by 50 – 60 per cent causing serious trouble to passengers, adding that no such increase has ever been made in history.

Unions responding to the Sri Lanka Railway had previously warned that the launching of a strike action would be inevitable had the price of train tickets been increased. Some trade unions have already decided to go on strike.
