  1. Fares doubled will b a burden on commuters who R already facing fragiled transport system in capital n NCR. Perhaps gradual increase will b accepted, if not public will have no option.This may lead to termoil n lawn order problem .Committee Shud luk into all these aspects b4 implimenting new fares. PERHAPS GRADUAL INCREASE IS SUJJESTED.

  2. Just think about middle class family person in which a single person be in the driving seat of family,how can he manage burden of whole family . single person which earn only 10000 and travel from badarpur to faridabad and this revised will give extra burden of 3000 .from 50lakh daily passenger 25-30lakh person belongs to middle class family ,then how will they bear the burden of this .metroofficial said that they were in loss. But day by marketing,advertisement covering back to front all area .this is also a source of income for them. Just think about middle common person at that time when inflation at high

  3. Hi

    According to me DMRC should look for the alternative source of the income instead of putting burden to the public.As i have noticed there are no advertisement on the Metro station,concourse and on the entry or the exit of the Metro.Although there are advertisement kiosk,which are left without advertisement,and previously there were eating stalls(kiosk) on every station but now a days they are also removed.Apart from that in Metro trains you have put a section of the advertisement in each and every coach but there seems to be only promotional advertisement of either Delhi Government or the central Govt. If you want to increase fare then you should do it gradually and slowly.If the fare are increased by double then it will be a revenue loss to DMRC also as people will prefer to drive their own vehicle instead So before increasing the fare you shud consider all the aspect and for the sake of the common man increase the fare as less as you can.

    Regards
