Arshiya International, the private train operator, has dragged the Indian Railways to Competition Commission of India (CCI) for not disclosing certain clauses while signing concessionary agreement and raising haulage charges. The CCI is expected to announce its observations in April.

Ajay Mittal, chairman, Arshiya International said, "There are many private players including the steel and coal companies who are not happy with the Indian Railways but they do not want to cross swords with the ministry."

The railway ministry in September increased the haulage charges by 170 to 200% for petroleum products, cement, stone, iron and steel.
