Will the Railway Minister hike fares this time?
The key dilemma facing Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu as he formulates his maiden Railway Budget is how to shore up the railways' finances. It is likely that the coming Railway Budget will neither raise nor lower passenger fares.  Any adjustment in fares to take care of changes in fuel costs had been delinked from the Budget by the previous United Progressive Alliance government.
