Commuters will have to spend more bucks for auto rides in the national capital as the Delhi government on Friday notified revised auto-rickshaw fares. Under the revised rates, the meter down charge (minimum fare) for the initial 1.5 kilometre for auto-rickshaws has been increased from 25 to 30, while the per kilometre charge after meter down has been hiked from 9.50 to 11.

The Aam Aadmi party-led government has approved the hike in auto-rickshaw and taxi fares in view of rising Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) prices in Delhi. Nearly two lakh auto rickshaws and taxi drivers, who had to face higher expenditures as a result of recent increases in CNG rates, will be relieved.

For taxis, the per kilometre charge after metre down has been hiked from 14 to 17 for non-AC vehicles and from 16 to 20 for AC vehicles.

The latest price increase for autorickshaws took place in 2020, whereas the last one for taxis, including black-and-yellow, economy, and premium taxis, took place nine years back, in 2013.
