Illegal increase in fare rate increases miseries of commuters

Share This

RAWALPINDI: Transport owners have illegally increased the fare rate up to 20 percent for the commuters travelling from Rawalpindi to Wah.

This sudden increase has been made without any legal directions, while secretary Rawalpindi Traffic Authority (RTA), traffic wardens and administration are also playing role of silent spectator in this situation.

Transport owners argues that implementation on the fare list given by RTA is not possible because prices of petrol are unaffordable for transporters, while for filling of CNG they have to go to other province.

On the other side, different public representative circles have expressed severe concerns over increase in rate of fare done by transporters and have demanded from concerned authorities to take action against this illegal step.
