Default Sound from Engine Bay of Swift VDI (DDIS) - what would be the cause of this sound?

Folks,

I am off late getting a clock ticking sound from engine back. The ticking is at higher frequency of 3 tics a second (Not like clock). I am unable to figure out the reason for the same. what would be the cause of this sound? Should I be cautious and take it to the M.A.S.S to verify the sound?

Thanks.

Of couse.

Please take it to your service station.

Does not harm even if it turns out to be something minor.

Yes it is when I switch on the ignition and when idling it is very prominent. Must be fuel pump as Jaggu suggested but why has the sound increased of late?
