Delhi HC dismisses plea challenging AAP govt’s free metro ride for women scheme
| Wednesday | 10th July, 2019
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday dismissed a petition challenging the AAP government’s proposal of making Delhi metro rides free for women.
Singh had contended in his plea that the decision of the Delhi government to give free metro rides to women is “arbitrary” and “discriminatory”.
The petition had also sought a direction to the state government to reduce the metro fare.
Additionally, it sought directions to the state government to adopt a fare table suggested by the Fare Fixation Committee.
Last month, Kejriwal had announced free ride for women in all Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) buses, cluster buses and Delhi Metro trains, in order to provide a safe travel experience to them.
