Netizens are calling for lowering the cost of train tickets that do not offer a seat, but railway authorities say the price is already at rock bottom.

A publicity official at the Ministry of Railways who declined to give his name said on Thursday the ministry does not try to profit from no-seat tickets.

"But during the travel rush, there is a high demand for such tickets, because many people won't make it home otherwise," he said.
