Delhiites to pay more for Auto-rickshaws, fares set to rise by 14.3%
The report has suggested that auto-rickshaw fares be increased to Rs 9.15 per kilometre as against the current rate of Rs 8 per km, but it has not favoured any change in the flat rate of Rs 25 that is charged for the first two kilometers on auto-rickshaw ride. Earlier, the auto-rickshaw fare in Delhi were revised in 2016.
Like 2016, this year too, the unions have reportedly alleged that the panel suggestions were not aligned with the government promises. Image source: Reuters
