Delhi Metro Price Hike: All You Need To Know

Delhi Metro Price Hike: All You Need To Know”

"We will keep people aware of the politics being played between the BJP-led Central Government and the Kejriwal-led Delhi Government on the issue of the Metro fare hike", he said. Metro fares are revised to help the public transporter meet operational costs and provide world-class service, transport sector experts say.

While commenting on the new Metro policy, a government official told Hindustan Times that such revisions would now be done at regular intervals and for everyone.

In most places, it is a joint venture between the union and the state governments with loans also coming from foreign government's such as Japan for the Delhi Metro.At present, temporary FFCs are set up by the Centre for states whenever the metro rail corporations request a fare hike.

The decision of hike in metro fare was taken by the three-member Fare Fixation Committee (FFC) which was formed previous year with one representative from the Centre and the Delhi government each and the third, a retired high court judge. "I am amazed to know that the Union Urban Development Minister has demanded Rs 3,000 crore from the Delhi government to stop the metro fare hike and also at Kejriwal's response that he's going to pay half of it". The revised fare structure will be: up to 2 km - Rs 10, 2 to 5 km - Rs 20, 5 to 12 km - Rs 30, 12 to 21 km - Rs 40, 21 to 32 km - Rs 50 and for journeys beyond 32 km - Rs 60.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was one of vehement opponents of the ban.

The party has modified a bus as a Save Metro Rath and will take it to various metro stations to protest the hike in fare.

"One would have expected that on account of rapidly rising ridership, efficiency improvements and real estate exploitation, metro fares in real terms should have remained constant, if not reduced", he wrote.
