Flashback: When paper tickets were issued in Delhi Metro to handle commuter rush 19.8.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
A day after the first corridor of the Delhi Metro was launched by then prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in December 2002, the rush was so "massive" that paper tickets had to be issued to handle the flow of passengers, many of whom thronged stations more out of curiosity than the need to commute, officials said. Vajpayee, who died on August 16 after prolonged illness, had inaugurated the 8.2-km stretch between Tis Hazari and Shahdara stations of the Red Line on December 24. The corridor was thrown open for passenger services the next day, coinciding with his 78th birthday. "Besides, tokens and smart cards, paper tickets were issued on the first day of service (December 25, 2002) itself. People queued up from 1 am onwards, so that they could be the first to board the metro train," a top DMRC official said.

Advertising revenue keeps Jaipur Metro on track 18.8.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Despite the real estate blues and dwindling passenger fare, Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation (JMRC) is gaining momentum when it comes to capitalising on advertisements.  The advertisement agreements assure a multiple fold rise in the non-fare revenue for the corporation. “The metro has already made agreements aggregating to over Rs 14.5 crore for lease of advertisement and other spaces in this fiscal year,” says Rajesh Kumar Agarwal, director Corporate Affairs.  The non fare revenue of JMRC during last fiscal was around Rs 4.5 crore. The metro thus has already surpassed its previous years collection and is set to cross the passenger fare revenue which was less than Rs 9 crore during last fiscal. Advertisement has thus helped the metro to keep up its targets as it faces disappointment on the real estate side. It has only been bank ATMs and mobile towers that have so far secured ‘commercial spaces’ at the Jaipur metro stations. Other commercial properties remain ‘available for lease’ as JMRC continues to ...
