Post Delhi, regularly fare revisions likely at regular intervals across Indian Metros

The Aam Aadmi Party workers protested at Nirman Bhavan over Delhi Metro's fare hike on Friday.

According to the Newspaper, The party had launched "Metro kiraya Satyagraha" at several stations to protest the increase in fares.For all the latest Cities News, download Indian Express App.

Trump appears to admit he can't do much about 'fake news'
The request was what reportedly led Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to call Trump a "moron". Trump himself has attacked the network over the report on Twitter.

The policy, which was cleared by the Union Cabinet in August, allows states to draw up rules and set up a fare fixation committee (FFC) for periodic revision of fares. Kejriwal on Wednesday had asked Kutty to direct the Dialogue and Development Commission (DDC) to examine issues related to recent Delhi Metro fare hike and also assess whether it could have been avoided. "The "fight" between the Delhi Government and the Center is going to put a big question mark on the future of the Phase-IV of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation", Maken said.

He said that when both were against the hike in Metro fare then who took the decision. The first hike this year was done in May 2017, when the price of minimum tickets was raised from Rs 8 to Rs 10 and maximum from Rs 30 to Rs 50. "It shows both did not do their homework". Buying a metro token restricts you to de-board at the particular metro station, but if you have a smart card you can make last minute change in your travel plan and de-board at any station you want.

The ruling AAP is vociferously opposing the proposed fare hike that has come into effect from Tuesday.
