Hola Delhizens! Since we know that the lives of most of us Delhiites is really incomplete without the Delhi Metro, we try and get you interesting updates about them as much as we can. And we have something really cool to tell you this time again! Keep reading.
Delhi Metro Be Our Bae! | Once the proposed corridors of Delhi Metro’s Phase IV project are complete, the metro is expected to carry 10 lakh additional commuters by 2025. And along with that, the metro fares are also likely to increase and will range from Rs 20 to Rs 100. So basically, this is good news and bad news.
The DMRC had earlier estimated that around 40 lakh commuters will use the metro, but the hike in fares led to a decline in ridership. The proposed corridors - those being Rithala-Narela, Tughlakabad-Aerocity and Inderlok-Indraprastha are likely to see around 1.29 lakh commuters on a daily basis. Also, three other corridors, Lajpat Nagar-Saket, Janakpuri West-RK Ashram and Mukundpur-Maujpur will see around 70,000 people by 2025.
Well, we surely are happy that the Delhi Metro is gaining so much popularity. We just hope that the fares don’t rise by too much! Fingers crossed!
