    June 28, 2022

    Revision of railway transport charges.

    Sri Lanka Railway Department had adopted a concessionary payment system for passenger transport in terms of the state policies. However, due to the rapid price hike of fuel experienced recently, the recurrent loss of the Department is on the rise too. Therefore, it has become vital to increase the income earned by the Department in order to sustain a satisfactory railway service.

    Accordingly, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the proposal furnished by the Minister of Transport and Highways to revise the railway charges categorized as passenger transport charges which had not been revised for more than five (05) years, the goods transport and postal transport charges which have not been revised approximately in fourteen (14) years.
