From November second week, you will have to pay more for a ride in the Metro. While the minimum fare will go up from Rs 6 to Rs 8, the maximum fare will increase from Rs 22 to Rs 32 — the second time in the seven years of Metro’s operation in Delhi.

The fare revision will coincide with the opening of the Noida section in the second week of November. The fares of metro feeder buses will also be increased from Rs 5 and Rs 8 to Rs 8 and Rs 10 respectively.

The board of directors of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) board approved the new fare structure on Thursday.

The fare of DTC buses is also set to increase. While the DTC has proposed three different fare structures, senior transport department officials said the plan to keep minimum fare in non-AC buses at Rs 5 and maximum at Rs 15 is more likely to get the cabinet nod.
