Mumbai Metro commuters brace yourselves for a fare hike of Rs.5 with effect from December 1, 2015. Five news slabs have been introduced by MMOPL to keep up with the recommendations of Fare Fixation Committee.
The company confirmed in a statement, “MMOPL has announced for the corridor while still keeping the fares significantly below the recommendations of the Fare Fixation Committee (FFC). The new fare structure will be effective from December 1.”
Latest Mumbai Metro Fare Slabs
Number of fare slabs have increased from four to five with the latest fare being Rs.10, 20, 22, 29 and 34 from Rs.10, 18, 27 and 32. Store value pass holders have been impacted the least out of all the passengers with a trivial fare hike of Rs.2. Here’s a table presenting a comparison between latest and old fare.
“While MMOPL continues to suffer losses of about Rs 300 crore per year, we chose to defer any fare revision till November 30, 2015, and engage with the government with an intent to find a viable solution and to avoid giving any shock to its valued commuters. We will continue to pursue the matter,” said a spokesperson.
Fare for monthly pass:
The 45 trip monthly pass that comes at Rs.625 & Rs.900 for short & long trips would now cost Rs.725 & Rs.950. This turns out to be a hike of Rs.1 per trip. The new fare structure is said to be heavily discounted when compared to recommended fare hike of Rs.10 to Rs.110 by the Fare Fixation Committee.
