Kolkata: Kolkata Metro Railway Authorities today sent a proposal to increase the Metro fare to the Railway ministry. Kolkata metro general manager have sent the proposal. Metro rail sources said that they sent the proposal to increase the fare in short distance. They have been proposed to increase minimum fare from 5 to 10.
Metro Authority also proposed to decrease the fair on maximum distance. Metro officials claimed that the ticket of short distance sold much rather than maximum distance. So they think that if the fare increased in this zone then also the income of the metro is increased.
Passengers said that they have no problem with such increases but Metro authority should promise to give proper services. Last few years Metro had some obstacles and many incidents like door open, caught fire happened in the Metro. So they promised to maintain and keep clean the service.
