Mumbai: The Delhi government on Friday approved revised fares for auto-rickshaws and taxis amid rising compressed natural gas (CNG) prices. The auto fares were last revised in 2020, while the same for the taxi was done in 2013.
As per the public authority choice, a worker taking an auto should pay ₹ 30 rather than the current ₹ 25 for the main 1.5 kilometres. For each resulting kilometre, the passenger should pay ₹ 11 instead of the current ₹ 9.
For taxis, for the principal kilometre, there is no adjustment of rates for both AC and non-AC vehicles. In this way, the per kilometre charge has been climbed from ₹ 14 to ₹ 17 for non-AC vehicles and from ₹ 16 to ₹ 20 for AC vehicles.
There is no adjustment of the holding up charges and it will stay at the current ₹ 30 every hour.
Delhi Transport Pastor Kailash Gahlot had gotten numerous portrayals from the auto-cart and taxi affiliations and associations on the issue of the climb in tolls.
