Delhi Metro | DMRC rejects Kejriwal’s request, fare hike to be effective from tomorrow

New Delhi: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on Monday refused to defer metro fare hike despite Delhi chief minister Kejriwal’s opposition to it. The board members discussed Kejriwal’s proposal but decided to go ahead with recommendations of Fare Fixation Committee (FCC), to be made effective from October 10.

Nominee directors of the Delhi government conveyed that the CM wanted the postponement of the fare hike and formation of a new FFC. The Board was informed that under Section 37 of the Metro Railways (Operation and Maintenance) Act, 2002, recommendations of the FFC are binding on metro rail authorities.

Subsequently, the Board noted that it does not have the authority to consider/defer implementation of the recommendations of the FFC.

Kejriwal had written to the Housing and Urban Affairs (HUA) Ministry to issue a direction to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to put on hold the proposed hike in fares, as recommended by 4th Fare Fixation Committee (FCC).
