DelhionWeb: 08 May, 2017, Traveling in Delhi Metro has become expensive because the metro has increased fares. Increased rent will be applicable from May 10 (Wednesday). Passengers traveling in the metro train will now have to pay a minimum rent of Rs 10, now 8 rupees. While the maximum fare will be Rs 50. There is currently a maximum rent of Rs 30. The Metro has made new rent slabs, under which rent of Rs 10, Rs 15, 20 rupees, 30 rupees, 40 and 50 rupees has been fixed. Earlier, in 2009, the minimum rent was raised from Rs 6 to Rs 8 and maximum rent was raised from Rs 22 to Rs 30.


On the introduction of new fares for Delhi Metro, each passenger will have to pay 10 rupees for 2 kms. 15 rupees for 2 to 5 kms, 30 rupees for 12 to 21 kms, 40 rupees for 21 to 31 kms and Rs. 50 for traveling more than 31 kms.


It is worth noting that some time ago the Rent Committee, chaired by the retired judge of the High Court, had recommended the hike in fares. The minimum fare is yet to be 8 rupees, which was proposed to increase to 10. Similarly, maximum rent is currently 30, which was recommended to increase to 50. A source confirmed the increase in metro fare, told that the board has accepted the committee's recommendations. Public notice will be issued for new rent and new rent will be applicable from Wednesday.


The DMRC Board will make the final decision, headed by Urban Development Secretary. The Metro says that its condition is not correct, so it is necessary to increase the rent. It is to be seen now that the government allows the rent to increase or interfere in it. Both the Center and the Delhi Government are involved in the metro.
