Bus Fare Increase – Pinches Common Man’s Budget

Few days back, Punjab Government has announced hike in Roadways fare all over Punjab. The decision of the Punjab Government was taken as against hike in the diesel prices by the Central Government.

According to Jagtar Singh, a private bus operator, “we are finding it very difficult for meeting the day to day expanses of diesel as a result of hike of in the diesel prices by the Government”.



Some of the Fare differences

LUDHIANA – CHANDIGARH   = earlier 70 INR Now 80 INR

LUDHIANA – MOGA                 = Earlier 45 INR Now 54 INR

LUDHIANA – PATIALA            = Earlier 70 INR Now 83 INR

According on an estimate, around 2700 + roadways buses are on ply daily. While the number of private players is around 2800.

“ It can’t be forgotten that the major chunks of buses on Punjab Roads is the stake of highly rich people,” A minute rise in hike in prices would mint more money into the pockets of these people.
