The Delhi Metro has expanded exponentially in the last few months. The operational span of the network has now expanded to 252 km.
According to data made available in response to an RTI query, in the months of July, August, September and October last year, metro sold an average of 15,650 cards per day.
The services of the metro will be unbolted for the public from Wednesday.
The metro's daily average ridership came down to 24.2 lakh in October from 27.4 lakh in September, translating to a fall of around 11 per cent.
The revised fare structure will be: 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.
Puri had on Friday told the Delhi government it would need to pay Rs 3,000 crore annually for five years if it wanted to stop the metro fare hike.
Kejriwal had written to the HUA Ministry to issue a direction to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to put on hold the proposed hike in fares, as recommended by 4th FCC.
The fares were last revised in May. From the next month, fares will go up by a maximum of Rs 10.
The total ridership came down by around 15 lakh and 21 lakh in the Yellow and Blue Lines in June, as compared to the same period the previous year.
