Revision in transport fare within week

KATHMANDU: The Department of Transport Management would adjust the public transport fare within a week.

The Nepal Oil Corporation slashed the price of fuel on Monday following the slump in the price of petroleum products in the international market.

The air fare has been adjusted to be effective from Wednesday in the wake of the reduction of the fuel price.

However, the transport fare has not yet been reduced and the commuters are compelled to pay the old fare.

Moreover, there is no uniformity in the transport fare and the public transporters are arbitrarily charging the passengers, saying they bought the diesel in the black market.

The Department has not taken action although the passengers are being overcharged, the people have complained.
