Reaching AUD


AUD campus Kashmere Gate

The Ambedkar University Delhi (AUD) campus is located in the northern part of the city of Delhi known as the Delhi 6 or Kashmere Gate area.

Its official address is Ambedkar University Delhi, Lothian Road, Kashmere Gate, Delhi-110006.

Unfortunately, few taxi or auto drivers have ever heard of Lothian Road. They are however familiar with Kashmere Gate, the locality in which the campus is situated. In fact, AUD is located right next to IGDTUW in the old GGSIPU campus, which they should be able to take you to. Another well-known nearby landmark is the Old Delhi Railway station.

Travel directions to AUD from Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA)



IGIA is almost 20 Kms away from AUD campus.



The reasonable options are to take a metro(see below) or a taxi(see below).


Metro


Probably the most viable and comfortable means of transport in Delhi for a visitor in Metro which covers almost every corner of the city (see Below). Both terminal 1D and terminal 3 has metro connectivity which shuttles you to New Delhi Railway Station, from there you need change the metro to the yellow line and hop on to the metro heading towards Jahangirpuri or Viswavidyalaya. Get down at Kashmere Gate metro station, take exit 7 and the AUD campus is just 5 minutes away. You can take a cycle Rickshaw, which would cost you Rs/- 20.

Taxi


Both regular taxis (prepaid) and radio taxis (postpaid) such as Merucabs and Easy cabs (see below) are available.

The pre-paid counters (for regular taxis) managed by Delhi Police are located inside the airport. To book a taxi, mention your destination and pay the fare. You will receive two receipts for the amount you pay. The pick-up locations are outside the terminal. You should hand over one copy to the driver only after you are satisfied that you have reached your destination.

Post-paid radio taxis are available just outside the airport. In terminal 1, there is a prominent Easycabs stand where you can ask for the next available cab. They will give you a slip with a cab number, which you should be able to find in the taxi queue. In terminal 3, post-paid taxis are available outside two specific exit gates (see posted signs). Services are provided by Merucabs and Megacabs. Note that in addition to the metered fare and any applicable toll taxes, there will be an additional airport parking fee.

Be warned that even though regular taxis are cheaper, they are more liable to cause you hassle. In particular, the pre-paid counter will give you a designated pick-up location (and not a specific cab as the radio taxis will). It is quite possible that once you reach your pick-up location, you will find several other passengers waiting, and no taxi in sight. If this happens, get in touch with the staffs of Delhi Police on duty nearby.

Traveling around In Delhi

Autos and taxis



The Delhi Traffic Police website has the official tariff rates for Taxis and Autos. You an consult it to figure out how much it should cost to travel to your destination.


Autos are ubiquitous within the city limits, and you can usually flag one down on the street. Some will ask exorbitant rates; just ignore them and wait for the next available one. After an increase in the tariff recently, it is much easier to find an auto that will agree to charge the meter rate.


There are several "radio Taxi" services available in Delhi, with higher tariff fare, but usually more reliable. They can be booked in advance over the phone or through their website. The more popular ones are

Meru Cabs: 011-4422-4422
