The Delhi High Court Wednesday expelled a request provoking the AAP government’s proposition to make metro ride free for ladies. The bench of Chief Justice D N Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar declined to engage the request, saying there is no substance in it and forced an expense of Rs. 10,000 on the applicant.
The court also rejected the prayer in the petition seeking a reduction of fares and to make 15 slabs of the ticket price instead of existing six. “Fixation of fares is a statutory provision and it depends on several factors including cost which cannot be determined in a PIL,” the bench said
