Southern Railway would open special counters for issuing receipts for the difference of fare as the increased rail fare will come into effect from January 22.

The counters would be opened at the Madurai and Tirunelveli Railway stations, a statement said. Those who have booked tickets in advance for the journey on and from January 22 should pay the difference of fare.

The difference in fare and other charges would be recovered by Travelling Ticket Examiners on the trains or by the booking/reservation offices before the commencement of journey from passengers.
