Bihar: After the train fare hike, bus travel will also be expensive; 25 percent fare increase before Holi

After another hike in the prices of petrol-diesel and domestic gas cylinders in Bihar, another inflation is going to be hit. In fact, bus travel in the state is going to be 25 percent more expensive. Bihar Motor Transport Federation has decided to increase passenger fares by 25 percent. This will be applicable from midnight of March 14 i.e. March 15.

The meeting of bus owners in Baria on Sunday raised concern over the rising price of diesel. It was said in the meeting that between 19 to 28 February, diesel has increased by Rs 20 per liter. There is a possibility of progressing further. In such a situation, the government fees for making paper documents have also been increased. Therefore increasing the passenger fare is a compulsion. Federation’s state president Uday Shankar Singh said that after much consideration, it was decided to increase the passenger fare by 25 percent.

It was decided that it would be implemented from 14 March. The freight chart will be put on all vehicles within a week. Patron Amar Pandey, District President Mukesh Sharma, Kameshwar Mahato, Alok Singh, Munna Singh, Balindra Singh, Brajbhushan Singh, Ramrekha Rai, Rohit Kumar, Sudhir Singh, etc. were present in the meeting.
