  • Delhi Metro lost 3 lakh commuters a day after the October fare hike

Responding to media reports that the metro lost over three lakh commuters a day after hiking fares in October, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said that the increase in fares had not benefited anyone.

The Blue Line, considered the metro's busiest, lost over 30 lakh commuters, according to data shared by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) in response to an RTI query.

The 218-km network now has six major lines.

This came barely five months after the first hike which resulted in upto 100 per cent fare rise.

After the first phase of the hike in May, the Metro lost almost 1.5 lakh passengers per day in June as ridership dropped to 25.7 lakh. While its average daily ridership had fallen to 25.7 lakh in June following a fair hike, down by about 0.8 lakh from the May figure of 26.5 lakh, in October daily ridership plummeted sharply to 24.2 lakh from 27.4 lakh in September following another increase in fares. At that point in time, the minimum fares were raised from Rs 8 to Rs 10 and the maximum from Rs 30 to Rs 50. The fall was a relatively smaller 80,000 per day when compared to the previous month's figures. The first hike had been effected in May.

"In October there were five Sundays in comparison to four in September and ridership remains less on holidays than on weekdays. This monthly variation in ridership is dependent on multiple factors like seasons, vacations, holidays, festivals etc", it said. "The ridership after the fare revision for many days was actually higher than the ridership before the fare revision", it said.

It added that the month of November has seen a rising trend in the number of passengers.

Following that fare hike too the ridership on Delhi Metro had dipped sharply by almost 1.5 lakh per day in June in comparison to the same month a year ago. Blaming the BJP-led Centre, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Gopal Rai said that the fares were hiked "adamantly" despite opposition by the party. The hike eventually went through, with the Centre arguing that the recommendations of the fare fixation committee can't be overturned or deferred.

This is the second fare hike this year as proposed by the Fare Fixation Committee which was formed last year.
