The behemoth is considering to suspend the scheme on a temporary basis as during lean month in some of the trains the occupancy has gone down up to 30 per cent.

Also, the department is also mulling over a pricing regime as followed in Humsafar trains in which first fifty berths are sold at a higher price by over 15 per cent in comparison to the base price. Thereafter the slab will vary with every 10% of the remaining berths being booked.

In more of the routes where occupancy rate is down, the Indian Railways is also planning on providing special discounts.
