Free DTC Ride to Delhi Students

When a question was raised about providing free bus ride to Delhi students, CM Kejriwal said that “we will definitely do this after returning to power again”. When asked about the budget and sustainability for the same, he indirectly targeted Gujrat CM of ‘buying 190 crore plane for personal use’.

Recently CM of one of the states has bought a plane worth of 190 crores for his personal use. We have spent only 140 crores to wave off the bus fare for women, which is less than 190 crores. I haven’t bought any plane for my personal use and this is how we implemented free travel for women in DTC buses.

Will Benefit Lakhs of Student

There is already high demand for Delhi metro pass by Delhi students. But this scheme will equally benefit students if implemented as still a large number of students use DTC buses for the last mile connectivity and for inter-state travel. Currently students rely on DTC student bus pass which costs around Rupees 515 for 5 months, which will be completely waved off once the scheme is implemented.

  1. Actually his aims and interests are highly parallel and are never going to succeed, he is abstenating ticket fee for ladies and all in the bus service while the dtc workers aren’t getting paid for 2-3 in continuation and this might lead to dire consequences.

  2. As delhi metro runs under the venture of central and Delhi government.
    Now for the rest you, I think you are intelligent.
