The Delhi government on 11 January notified new rates of auto-taxi fare to give relief to the auto and taxi owners amid rising inflation.

As per details, the auto meter will now be down from 30 instead of 25 and after that the fare per km will be 11 instead of 9.5.

Apart from this, passengers will now have to pay 17 per kilometre for non-AC taxis after a minimum fare of 40.

According to the notification, issued by the transport ministry, the night charges -- trips between 11 pm and 5 am -- for auto-rickshaw will be an extra 25 per cent of fare. Waiting charges will be 75 paise for every minute in traffic. Luggage - not including 'shopping bag' or 'small suitcase' - will be 10 per piece.

However, for taxis (AC and non-AC) night charges are the same as auto-rickshaws, with waiting charges set at 1 per minute and luggage charges (with same exceptions) at 15 per piece.

Earlier this fee was 14 per kilometre. While the AC taxi fare has been increased from 16 per km to 20 per km.

A hike in fares has been a long-standing demand of the unions and the last revision to auto fares was done in 2020, while fares for taxis (black-and-yellow, economy and premium) took place in 2013.

Earlier in October, 2022, Delhi transport minister Kailash Gahlot said, "Increased cost of CNG led autos and taxis to drive fewer kilometres, which impacted supply. Revised fares will help them support families and provide convenience to passengers."

As per estimate, there are around 93,00 autos and 80,000 taxis in Delhi. This excludes cab aggregators like Ola and Uber, which do not come under the city scheme.
