Public transport fares hiked by 10 per cent
KATHMANDU — The government has hiked public transport fares by ten per cent effective from Sunday citing the recent increase in fuel prices.
The Ministry of Physical Infrastructure and Transport took a decision to this effect following a discussion between government officials and transport entrepreneurs held at the ministry on Saturday.
The meeting held at the Ministry of Physical Infrastructure and Transport with federation representatives decided to hike fares, according to Department of Transport Management (DoTM) Spokesperson Gokarna Prasad Upadhyaya.
With this, the annual Dashain pre-bookings, which had been stuck in a loop of fall-outs between the government and the protesting Federation of Nepalese National Transport Entrepreneurs Association, made headway from Saturday evening.
The meeting also decided to form a committee to review and report on systematic fare adjustment for public transport within two months.Follow @gorkhapost
