Delhiites Spared Metro Fare Hike For The Next Three Months

Last Updated:  | By: Health & Beauty, Lifestyle


The Delhi Metro fare fixation committee was set up on June 9 to recommend a revision fares who reports had to come out on September 8. And what came out is that the three-member committee headed by justice ML Mehta, retired judge of Delhi High Court, sought a three-month extension of the Union urban development ministry for completing its report.

The last time Delhi Metro fares were revised was in 2009 when the minimum fare was increased from Rs.6 to Rs.8 and the maximum fare from Rs.22 to Rs.30. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has been requesting a fare increase since 2009 but hasn’t been able to do so as the Centre failed to set up a fare fixation committee.

Since 2009, electricity tariff has gone up by over 90%, accounting for almost 30% of DMRC’s total operating cost.

However, the wait is until December 8 and the fares will be increased. Till the time Delhites are free from any kind of hike in fares.
