New transport fares will be implemented soon: Minister Nidhi

Minister for Physical Infrastructure and Transport Bimalendra Nidhi said the new fares of public transport will come into effect soon as the government has been discussing with transport entrepreneurs in this regard.

Speaking to media persons at Biratnagar Airport on Tuesday, Minister Nidhi said that the new fares will be implemented once the government completes discussion with the transport entrepreneurs.

Transport entrepreneurs have refused to abide by the new fares for public transport despite the government reducing the fares by 1.42 to 5.28 per cent. Government decided to cut the rate of fares due to decreasing price of petroleum products.
