Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has just kicked off the most insane and insensitive price hike ever. Not only that in October 2017 they are going to increase even more.
Here are the details: Check fare Here
A ride in Delhi metro is set to become costlier with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) announcing a steep hike in prices. The new price scheme, which will be implemented in two phases, starting from Wednesday, will see the minimum fare rising up to Rs 10 from Rs 8, and the maximum fare jumping up to Rs 50 from Rs 30. According to DMRC executive director, corporate communications, Anuj Dayal, “The fare revision will be implemented in two phases. The first phase of increase will be implemented with effect from May 10, and the second phase from October 1, 2017.”
The DMRC has cited increasing cost of electricity and maintenance works and salaries of staff as the reason behind the steep hike in fares. “Staff costs, the cost of energy and the cost of repair and maintenance have been increasing manifold,” Dayal said. According to officials, the recommendations made by the Fare Fixation Committee were repeatedly turned down by Metro board of directors, comprising officials from Delhi government, Union Urban Development Ministry, Union Railways Ministry and others. A Delhi government spokesperson said the price hike will force commuters to shift to personal vehicles and adversely impact regular passengers.
This is totally illogical, Govt already takes so many taxes with us , middle man goes to below poverty line. their salary increase only 10% but metro fare increase 67% how can they pay , maximum commuter of metro is office going persons. IF metro goes in loss where is our government who already takes us taxes . I totally oppose this fare, and I want you to support me.
We welcome fare hike if its reasonable and fit in the pocket. Where now days Government is trying to popularize public vehicle and we are facing this.
