In the wake of this fare hike decision, Aam Admi Party said that it will organise the protest against the metro rates hike from 10th October, today.

"Around 61.57% of the women stated that they would face severe issues in managing their household expenses after the fare hike" said the commission.

The revised fare structure will be: up to 2 km - Rs. 10, 2-5 km - Rs. 20, 5-12 km - Rs. 30, 12-21 km - Rs. 40, 21-32 km - Rs. 50 and for journeys beyond 32 km - Rs. 60.

The hike, which comes five months within the last one, will affect every commuter of the mass rapid transit who travels beyond 5 km, while journeys falling in the 2-5 km distance slab will cost Rs 5 more.

The centre, on the other hand, has said that the fare increase is necessary as the metro is incurring losses.

Smart card users, who, according to DMRC's estimates, happen to be 70 per cent of the metro's total ridership, will continue to get 10 percent discount on each ride.

President Trump welcomes Pittsburgh Penguins to White House
In December 2015, he had tweeted , "@ajodom60: "@FoxNews and as far as that low-info voter base goes, I have an IQ of 132. She says USA is "highest corporate taxed nation" in developed world.

"It has nearly doubled".

Another commuter, Sushant, a theatre artist, was also unhappy.

If he would have initiated the "Satyagraha" on the very day when the Metro Fare Fixation Committee held a meeting, then I don't think this move would have been taken into consideration.

In a tweet, Delhi AAP convenor Gopal Rai announced that the agitation will be held at all city metro stations at 4 pm on Wednesday.

"We have still not seen any proof by the AAP saying they were opposed to the fare hike, but yes fake public posturing is being done by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal" added Anupam. The party had even demanded that the metro functioning be handed over to them so they can run it without a price hike. "There is no improvement in facilities, but the fares are hiked", he said.

The Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the RSS-student wing, staged a demonstration outside the Metro Bhawan here, demanding the roll back of the hike or the issuance of a metro pass on lines of DTC bus pass for students.
