Cost of a New Delhi Taxi

Taxi tariffs in India are officially set by cities or districts. The fare for Delhi cab service was last set in January 2020 and published in the official tariff ordinance. It is binding for all taxis and taxi companies within the city area and suburbs and may not be exceeded or reduced. This is ensured by officially calibrated taximeters installed in each taxi in New Delhi.

The price of a taxi in Delhi depends on several factors. These are the route to be travelled, the journey time and of course traffic conditions (which can sometimes be rather difficult to handle in India). From these components the taxi price can be calculated.

New Delhi taxi fares are valid throughout the entire day and night.

Base fee (incl. 3 km): Rs 60.00 (€0.7)

Kilometre price: Rs 20.00 (€0.2)

Waiting time per hour: Rs 36.00 (€0.4)

How to Get a Taxi in New Delhi

New Delhi is a huge and busy city, but when you choose a New Delhi taxi service for your transfer, getting to your destination couldn’t be easier. You can choose to simply stop a taxi on the street, go to the nearest taxi rank, call one of the many local transfer companies or download a taxi app, like Meru cabs.

Taxi ranks can be found near all the major tourist spots in the city. In Delhi and Maharashtra, most taxicabs have yellow-black livery, while in West Bengal, taxis have yellow livery. When you spot a rank, all you have to do is walk to the front of the line and pick the first available vehicle.

During rainy days or late at night, we suggest booking your taxi by calling one of the local taxi companies or using one of the taxi apps available in India. That way, you can wait in a comfortable place for your driver to arrive.

New Delhi Taxi Tips

  1. A 10% tip is always appreciated in India and that also goes for taxi services.
  2. Taxis are safe at night. Of course you can always use a taxi app to feel more secure. You can also ask the reception to order a cab or hire from any reputable travel agent.
  3. According to Government of India regulations, all taxicabs are required to have a taximetre installed. However, some cabs operate either without it or with defunct ones. If you notice something like this, stop the ride and step out of the vehicle immediately.

Due to a lack of available vehicles in India, planning in advance is always a good idea. If you already know the dates of your India trip, then call ahead of time to make sure there is a wheelchair accessible car at your disposal. Then please reach Ezy Mov, Delhi via their website to book your customized vehicle.
