New Delhi: Now travelling in auto and taxi in Delhi will be expensive. Kejriwal government has fixed new rates of auto-taxi fare. According to these new rates, the auto meter will now come down to Rs 30 instead of Rs 25 and after that, the fare will be Rs 11 per km.
Earlier, the fare was Rs 9 per km. And for non-AC taxis, the minimum fare after Rs 40 will be Rs 17 per km. Earlier, Rs 14 had to be paid per kilometer. At the same time, the fare of AC taxi has been increased from Rs 16 per kilometer to Rs 20 per kilometer.
The Kejriwal government has issued a notification regarding the increased fares. This increase in fare has been done for autos and taxis running on CNG. In fact, for some time, a continuous increase in the prices of CNG was being seen across the country including the capital Delhi.
At the same time, auto and taxi drivers were also demanding revision of fares in Delhi. After this, the Delhi government had formed a committee to increase the fare. The fare has been increased on the basis of the report of this committee.
In fact, the Delhi government had approved auto and taxi fare revision on October 28, 2022. The file was sent to Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena to notify the revised fare after the model code of conduct for the Municipal Corporation (MCD) elections in Delhi was lifted on December 17. After getting the green signal from the governor, the Kejriwal government announced the implementation of new rates of rent.
