Bhaktapur, July 11:
The Bhaktapur District Committee of the Nepal Revolutionary Studentsâ€™ Association today appealed to the public not to pay fares fixed unilaterally by transporters.
Issuing a press statement, the NRSA said transporters had been charging exorbitant fares ignoring government-fixed rates. Vehicles have been collecting Rs 24 for a journey from Kamalbinayak to Gongabu though the existing fare is only Rs 20, it stated.
â€œWe urge the public to pay government-fixed fares until a new provision is made and call on
students and disabled people to avail themselves of discount,â€ said the
It may be noted that the NRSAâ€™s committee, transporters in Bhaktapur and the Bhaktapur District Administration Office had agreed yesterday to form a task force to re-work transport fares in the district.
The taskforce is scheduled to come up with new fares by tomorrow.
