Commuting from Delhi Metro will be costlier from today

Commuters using Delhi Metro will have to spend more from their pockets from tomorrow as the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has confirmed the price hike, as decided earlier.

The decision for the fare hike was taken after the meeting of Delhi Metro Fare Fixation Committee on Monday. The confirmation comes after DMRC refused to defer metro fare hike despite Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal's opposition to it.

As part of the two-phase revision of Metro fares recommended by the Committee, the fare would remain Rs 10 for the first 5 km, but will subsequently increase by Rs 10 in each slab, going up to a maximum of Rs 60.

The Metro fares were last revised in May when the minimum tariff was raised from Rs 8 to Rs 10.

The revised fare structure will be is: up to 2 kms - Rs 10, 2-5 kms - Rs 20, 5-12 kms - Rs 30, 12-21 kms - Rs 40, 21-32 kms - Rs 50 and for journeys beyond 32 kms - Rs 60.
