Minimum HRTC bus fare increased from Rs. 2 to 3
The state government has increased the minimum fare of Himachal Road Corporation (HRTC) buses by Re 1 with immediate effect. The minimum fare charged from a passenger, which was Rs 2 earlier, has now been increased to Rs 3.
Hamirpur:The enhancement of the minimum fare has been effected almost within a month after the formation of the new government in the state.
The HRTC authorities have already issued orders to respective divisional managers. Though orders regarding the new minimum fare rate have already been implemented in many divisions, the authorities are maintaining a silence about the orders.
In several HRTC divisions, conductors are already charging Rs 3 as a minimum fare in the buses. Onkar Sharma, Managing Director, HRTC, said, “I will enquire about the fare hike as I have joined the office yesterday”.
