Assam Cabinet approves bus fare increase


The state cabinet on Monday approved a 25 per cent increase in bus fares.

Earlier, Bus owners’ association announced their decision to increase fares following skyrocketing fuel prices, announcing a 40% increase in fares that, common people say, will burn a hole in their pockets and upset their monthly budget.

Unions and the Government subsequently arrived at a compromise which saw bus fares being increased by 25 per cent.
