Ahead of 2020 assembly polls in Delhi, the Aam Aadmi Party government is planning to make travelling in Metro and buses free for women.

A government official said that Delhi transport minister Kailash Gahlot has held a meeting with senior officials of DMRC and asked them to submit a proposal on how they can facilitate free travel for women and what it would cost.

About 30 lakh passengers travel by Delhi Metro every day and, according to sources, the number of women commuters is slightly higher than 25%. The total number of commuters in buses is estimated to be about 42 lakhs. The Delhi government official said it would not be very difficult to implement the decision in DTC and cluster buses since there are no technical issues involved.

DMRC refused to comment on the issue or confirm if any communication had been received from the Delhi government. Sources in the corporation, however, said that it would be difficult to allow free travel to any commuter as there is no such provision.

Why not for Men, Children and Older people?

Why the bias?

How can any business survive if it starts handing out its product without charge and for free?
