Appeal to Check on Excess Bus Fare
An appeal to the concerned departments to keep a check on the excess fare being charged by the drivers and conductors.
This is in regard to the recent happenings in Kohima. The price rate of a seat in the bus is INR 10 but due to the pandemic and SOP, a passenger is compelled to take dual seat for which he/she pays INR 20 which is understandable but some buses have been charging INR 20 per passenger though there are dual passenger in one row of seat, which costs INR 40 in total. This is exploitation of the passengers on board and amounts to daylight robbery.
Therefore, it is my earnest appeal to the concerned department to look into this matter and also to the public to raise our voice when needed.
