The Fare Store Value Card offered to the commuters will have a discount of 10 percent. DMRC will also offer further discounts on the purchase of multiple journey trip cards. The 30 trips, 45 trips and 60 trips cards will be available for customers. In case of 60 trip cards, the minimum and maximum one way fares will further come down to less than ` 9 and ` 40 respectively.

The revised fares for 30/45/60 trip products will be available only after exhausting the existing loaded products or after current validity.

The revised fares will be beneficial for the daily commuters traveling from areas like Dwarka and Dhaula Kuan to New Delhi and vice versa. The Airport bound commuters also will be further benefited. However, rate of all the existing cards and discount schemes will be discontinued. In addition, a special scheme for Sundays will be there only for Single Journey Token users having a minimum fare of ` 20 and maximum fare of ` 60.

There will not be any sale of Return Journey Token on Sundays. The sale of Single Journey token Sunday product will only be through manned counters and not through ticket vending machines. The fare of Sunday Single Journey Token has been reduced further to attract more commuters.  

The existing fare products for defence, students and privileged will be discontinued for sale, once the revised fares come into effect. In lieu, they can buy newly introduced standard products.

Ever since taking over the responsibility of operations of the Airport Express Line on 1st July, 2013, DMRC has taken a host of measures to improve the ridership. The daily average ridership in July, 2013 was 10,069 commuters and in June this year it increased to 13,133, an increase of 3,064 commuters every day.  Thus, in the last one year, ridership on the corridor has registered a substantial increase of 30.43 percent (till June, 2014)

                                                                                                                                                                                                          AD/ED (CC)/DMRC
