Today the Delhi High Court refused to interfere with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation’s (DMRC) decision to increase mass rapid transit fare by 100 per cent.
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar also observed that this was a policy decision and the court would not like to step into it.
“We are not going to interfere with it DMRC’s decision. Neither do we have any jurisdiction to go into it,” the bench said.
The plea said the increase in fares inordinately led to a situation where passengers travelling distances differing by nine km were made to pay the same amount which was unfair and unjust.
