The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has decided that people who enter stations during non-peak hours will be eligible for a 20% discount. Passengers will be eligable for this discount even if they exit during peak hours. Earlier on, only passengers who exited from the Metro system in non-peak hours were eligible for a 10% extra discount, apart from the 10% discount they already got for using smart cards.
The move, Metro rail officials said, is aimed at helping a larger group of people benefit from the 20% discount.
According to Metro rules, there are 3 non-peak hours:
- Start of revenue service to 8am
- From noon to 5pm
- From 9pm to close of revenue service
