The Admi Aam Party (AAP) on Tuesday issued a letter to the Director General of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) Mangu Singh, the DMRC’s unjustified decision to advance passenger fares for the second time in five months this year.
“We are deeply disappointed by DMRC’s decision to move forward with the second walk, even if we are not even required to take into account the views of the elected government of Delhi and elected officials,” the letter stated.
The AAP government said the DMRC is breaking the law it was created in 2002 for its poor decision to hike rates twice in a six-month interval.
The elected representatives of the AAP Delhi asked the DMRC to reserve their decision on the implementation of the second walk.
The letter also stated: “We wish to draw your attention to article 37 of the Delhi Train Operation and Maintenance Act 2002 which states:” The binding recommendations for the administration of the metro. The recommendation made by the tariff setting committee is mandatory for the administration of the metro.
Earlier, Delhi Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that all details of DMRC-related income and expenses should be put into the public domain and the decision to walk should be suspended until the Central Government and the Government of Delhi examine all relevant files.
In response to comments from the Minister of State with the independent office in the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Hardeep Singh Puri, that the central government revised the prime minister’s letter, Delhi’s metro tariffs should be modified, said Kejriwal, “If computers could not use the metro because of the high tariffs, what would be the usefulness of the metro operation.
The Chief Minister also stated that the Delhi government is of the opinion that the rate increase should be suspended for at least three months.
The Delhi metro fares were last revised in May. If the tariff is revised again, it is expected to increase to 10 R by 10 October.
