In a move which is certain to burn a further whole in the pockets of Delhiites, the Delhi Metro on Wednesday hiked parking. Parking charges for both 4-wheelers and 2-wheelers have been hiked by the Delhi Metro.
The hike in parking charges at Delhi Metro premises has come months after the DMRC announced a fare hike hitting the daily commuters hard.
In October last year, the DMRC had revised its fare chart. While travel beyond 5km cost Rs 10 more, journeys falling in the 2-5km distance were made costly by Rs 5 more.
Here are the new rates for parking vehicle in Delhi Metro premises:
Here's the revised fare structure: up to 2 km -- Rs 10, 2 to 5 km -- Rs 20, 5 to 12 km -- Rs 30, 12 to 21 km -- Rs 40, 21 to 32 km -- Rs 50 and for journeys beyond 32 km -- Rs 60.
Smart card users, who, according to DMRC's estimates, happen to be 70 per cent of the metro's total ridership, continue to get 10 per cent discount on each ride.
