The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is hiking its parking fees from September 8 onwards, according to a DMRC official.
The monthly parking fee for car goes up to Rs.625 from Rs.500; motorcycle, scooter and autorickshaw to Rs 300 from Rs 250; and cycle-rickshaw to Rs 30 from Rs 20.
"The fee at Metro stations is much less than those levied by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) and New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC)," the DMRC official said.
The increase apart, the DMRC also introduced a monthly parking pass Thursday at select stations.
"These monthly passes will be issued to any regular commuter using smart card, provided they have used their smart card for at least 20 days in August," the DMRC official said.
To avail this facility, the commuter should give a request letter with the copies of driving licence, registration certificate and smart card at the 18 stations earmarked.
The 18 stations are: Dilshad Garden, Jhilmil, Shahdara, Seelampur, Tis Hazari, Pulbangash, Pratap Nagar, Shastri Nagar, Inder Lok, Kanhaiya Nagar, Rohini West, Rithala, GTB Nagar, Patel Chowk, RK Ashram, Moti Nagar, Janakpuri East and Uttam Nagar East.
The Delhi Metro makes over 2,400 trips per day, traversing about 69,000 km and ferrying around 17 lakh passengers on working days.
