Increased fare has forced the passengers travelling in small and rural routes to look for alternative means of transportation. Lack of link road has further prompted people to move towards other modes of travel.
Going against the speculations, the DMRC is facing a shortage in the number of passengers even after the Metro inaugurating new routes. In 2018, the metro did not receive the footfall it expected post starting Bahadurgarh-Mundka and Mujesar- Raja Nahar Singh sections.
The minimum fare it takes to travel in the Delhi Metro is Rs 10. While the fare increases to Rs 20 in case one is travelling for more than two stations.
DMRC is running way short of its timeline, as it is taking them longer than planned to start trains in the Lajpatnagar-Mayur Vihar section.
