New Delhi: Metro commuters in Delhi are set to feel the pinch of the rising prices as travelling by metro is likely to become more dearer this winter.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has decided to revise the fare and increase it upto 40 percent. The minimum fare will be Rs 10 instead of existing Rs 8 and the maximum fare would go up to Rs 40 from existing Rs 30.

As per the reports, the proposed plan has already got the nod of Delhi Metro Board of Directors and after green signal from the Delhi Cabinet fares will be revised immediately.

“The main reason behind the move is the shortage of two rupee coins. Moreover, this will facilitate the fare slab structure and benefit the commuters,” DMRC officials said.

The board has given its nod to the recommendation of Fourth Fare Fixation Committee of bringing seven slabs against the existing 15 slabs in such a manner that the fare of each slab is the multiple of only Rs 5.
