The railway transport cost is one of the key factors that determine how much the railway fares are.
The total cost of the journey depends on the speed of the train, how many people are on board, and the number of coaches.
As a general rule, it ranges between Rs 1,000 and Rs 2,000 per kilometre.
The train costs between Rs 50 and Rs 100 per kilometer.
Railways usually use different rates to calculate their transport costs.
A train costs Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 while a bus costs Rs 15 to Rs 20.
But in some cases, the trains are not able to carry enough passengers to cover their costs.
The railways have also recently increased the fare to Rs 1.5 lakh for trains and Rs 1 lakh for buses.
