Delhi Metro Rides Costlier From Today, 'Painful' Says AAP: 10 Points

Delhi Metro Rides Costlier From Today, 'Painful' Says AAP: 10 Points

The Delhi Congress launched a week-long "Stop Politics, Save Metro" campaign against the "street fight" between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday.

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.

The letter sent by Mukund Kumar Sinha, ex-officio joint secretary of the ministry, asked Kutty "not to issue any order for enquiry into the fare hike or various other matters" on the grounds that neither the DDC nor the Delhi government had the competence to do so.

Business Insider said Britain was already considering regulations that would treat Facebook more like a media company. Reportedly, Facebook does not want to harm its $500 billion valuation by admitting it is a media company.

Blaming the Delhi Government for missing the deadline for Phase-IV of the Metro project, Maken said "The DPR for Phase-IV was submitted to the Governments in 2014-15, but the Delhi Cabinet did not approve the financial proposal in time", he said. People have also lamented the fact that the fare hike is completely unjustified unless the DMRC intends to provide passengers with better facilities. He asked for the setting up of an "independent Expert Group" acceptable to both state and central government to look into several questions he has raised about the recent fare hike decision.

Kutty on Friday afternoon refused to order the inquiry and when the Chief Minister summoned him in the evening, the Chief Secretary again refused to order an inquiry, according to the statement. 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".

Summary: The fare hike "demonstrates a complete lack of compassion for the common man", he added. 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.
