The committee recommended revising the fare for taxis which was then reviewed and now notified by the Kejriwal government.

Gahlot said: “Delhi government has continuously worked for the citizens of the city. The drivers of autos and taxis have been incurring high expenses due to hikes in CNG prices in last few months. The new fares will help them to cope with the rising CNG prices. I would like to ensure all the drivers that Kejriwal government is standing with them and will keep supporting them with the best possible manner.”
