Remember last year when the Delhi Metro fares almost doubled? God, what a nightmare that has been! Another dreaded hike was supposed to take place in January next year, based on the recommendations of the Fare Fixation Committee, but the Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs has hinted that such a hike is unlikely.

The Union Minister also indicated that the daily ridership for Delhi Metro is set to rise from the current 28 lakhs to 45 lakhs by mid-2019. Woah, that would be a huge jump!

Amazing news indeed!
