Delhi Metro fare hike comes into effect from today


New Delhi: Today the journey of Delhi Metro has become expensive. DMRC has declared the increase in the fares of the metro, after which you will have to pay the increased rent by a different distance. On Monday night, DMRC announced the increase in the fares of the Metro by rejecting the Delhi government’s formula. The Delhi Metro Board cleared that they do not have the right to avoid the hike and they are forced to accept the decision of the fixing committee.

DMRC met on Monday night at around 8 pm, considering the opposition of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, but in the end it was decided to increase the fare of the metro. According to the new decision, the passengers of the Metro will have to pay only 10 rupees as the minimum rent, but the maximum fare will now be Rs 60 for the 50.

  • 2 kilometers of travelers 10 rupees for now
    -For 2 to 5 km it was Rs. 15 now Rs. 20
    -5 to 12 km it was s. 20 now Rs. 30
    -12 to 21 km it was Rs. 30 now Rs. 40
    -21 to 32 km it was Rs.40 now Rs. 50
    For more than 32 kilometers of journey, Rs 60 will be charged

At the same time, travelers using the smart card will get 10 percent discount as before. Smart card users will receive an additional 10 percent discount till the end of the 8 o’clock, between 12 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 9 am at the night of the Metro service. In addition, on Sundays and National Holidays, passengers will have to pay a maximum of 50 rupees.

On one hand, the public is disturbed and on the other side, the political Mahabharata has also spread. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal gave 50-50 formula to the Center to reduce the cost of the Metro. The suggestion was to raise half the expense of the loss of Rs 3000 crore to the metro while half of Delhi Government but the BJP is saying just about all these efforts of Kejriwal.

The Fair Fixation Committee, i.e. FFC, decided to increase the metro fare in May 2017. On May 10, 51 percent rent was increased, now 27 percent has been increased. The BJP raised the question that the three members of the Rental Assessment Committee are also the Chief Secretaries of a Delhi Government. In such a situation, why did not he protest against the rent at the same time? On the other hand, after the increase in fares, Kejriwal again attacked the center.
