KARACHI - Pakistan Railways is likely to impose new fares next week as the railway ministry and the concerned high-ups have taken the decision in this regard in the face of increasing oil prices, said Kashif Rasheed Yousufani, Divisional Commercial Officer Karachi Division, while talking to The Nation on Thursday. He said the railways head office had sent a summary to the ministry for increasing the fares of both passenger and goods trains from 5 to 15 per cent. He added the fares of the goods trains would be increased 10 per cent while the final approval from the ministry is yet to be received. On the other side, the railway sources said the ministry has approved the summary for an increase in the fares, while all divisional heads will get the final notification to this effect in a couple of days.   Meanwhile, Pakistan Railway Workers' Inqilab Union leaders Muqaddar Zaman, Jan Alam Advocate, Mohammad Ajaib, Arif Mashwani, Niaz Mohammad and others have strongly criticised the decision of increasing the fares and said the rulers have once again set to put more burden on the poor.  They appealed to the Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani to take notice on this issue and revoke the decision for an increase in the fares.
