Haulage rates: Rlys may look at partial roll-back

The Railway Ministry might consider a partial roll-back of haulage charge hike proposed for container train operators.

Railway Minister Pawan Bansal on Wednesday said, “The hike was proposed after a discussion with the container operators. But, there appears to be some concerns of the operators (on the extent of hike). They have approached us. We will consider the issue. But we will go ahead with the implementation from December 1.”

The association of container train operators have approached the Ministry on the issue.

Meanwhile, following the Railway Ministry’s move to increase haulage charges, Container Corporation of India (Concor) has alerted its customers that it will increase fares in both export-import and domestic segment.

Gateway Distriparks Ltd has also said that it will partially pass on the hike to its customers.
