Delhi Metro plans to give fare concession to students and senior citizens: In a recent development towards regulating its fares for students and senior citizens, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has planned a technological solution which would allow it to provide fare concession.
A DMRC spokesperson told Financial Express Online that this technological solution has been planned by changing the system of biometric smart cards, so that fare concession on Delhi Metro tickets can be provided to students and senior citizens.
In this regard, Hardeep Singh Puri, Union Housing and Urban Affairs Minister recently stated that DMRC has planned for a technology-based solution in order to provide concession in fares to Delhi Metro commuters such as students as well as senior citizens.
According to the Minister, the quantum of the fare concession has to be decided by the fare fixation committee (FFC). This committee is constituted by the Central government with an aim to revise the Delhi Metro fare. Read More
