Auto Taxi Fare in Delhi
Taxi and auto drivers have been asking for fare increases, citing an increase in fuel expenses. The fare increase has been authorised by Kailash Gehlot, the minister of transport for Delhi. It will be costly to reserve autos and taxis in the capital. The suggestions made by the tariff adjustment committee have been accepted by Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot.
Forward May, the committee turned in suggestions for raising the price. If the suggestions are followed to the letter, three-wheeler passengers would have to pay Rs. 30 for the first kilometer as opposed to Rs. 25 today. After that, you would have to pay Rs. 11 per kilometer rather than Rs. 9.50. Instead of two kilometers for Rs. 25, the taxi metre will read Rs. 40. After that, non-AC cabs can charge Rs. 17 per kilometer rather than Rs. 14. For AC cabs, the per-kilometer cost would be Rs 20 rather than Rs 16. The cabinet lead by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will, however, make the ultimate decision. Delhi’s most recent vehicle fare rate changes occurred in 2019. The last time taxi fares went up was in 2013.
