Delhi Metro Price Hike: All You Need To Know

Delhi Congress workers across the city also collected signatures of Metro commuters against the fare hike. Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken will conduct a Save Metro Rath yatra and will take it to various metro stations to protest the hike in fare.

The fare hike came to force on October 10 from the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation despite stringent opposition from the Aam Aadmi Party government led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal who had reportedly agreed to pay 50% of the annual aid required for metro operations.

The Delhi unit of the Congress party has made a decision to stage protests outside Metro stations in the city on Friday against the recent increase in its fare.

Rai said in the coming week AAP volunteers will hold peaceful protests in front of the houses of the 7 BJP MPs from Delhi and will appeal to them to stand up for the rights of the citizens who voted for them. Earlier this week, Delhi AAP convener Gopal Rai had said the fare hike will benefit only the cab aggregators, like Ola and Uber, whose services will become cheaper than Metro. The protest gathered attention not only of metro users but also of those traveling by road. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has, as of yet, not released an official statement revealing the exact reason behind the problem.

Union Urban Development Minister Hardeep Singh Puri told the Delhi Government that it would need to pay Rs3, 000 crore annually for five years if it wanted to stop the metro fare hike.
