Jaipur: In a bid to encourage more commuters to travel by Metro, the Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation (JMRC) has decided not to increase the fares for the next three months.
The decision was taken in the 25th board meeting on Tuesday that fares will be revised in a meeting scheduled on March 31. Earlier, it was proposed to increase the fares every six months, however, after witnessing the low ridership, JMRC is apprehensive of increasing the fares.
A senior official informed, “Jaipur Metro is still the cheapest mode of transportation in terms of fares. The fares would remain same and minimum fare for plying in Metro would be Rs 5 while maximum fare has been fixed at Rs 15 by the Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation (JMRC).”
