On June 3, this year, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had announced to make metro and bus travel free for women in the national capital.
The proposal will be implemented within 2-3 months, he said.
"On all DTC buses, cluster buses and metro trains women will be allowed to travel free of cost so that they have safe travel experience and can access modes of transport which they were not able to, due to high prices. The government will bear their travel expenses," Kejriwal said at a press conference.
