Brand-new coach, taxi fare valid from 11 June
Today, the West Bengal government published an increase in ticket prices for local transportation in the country, which will take effect on 11 June. According to a communication from the Ministry of Communications, the current tariffs for non-AK wagons operated by road hauliers and state-owned carriers will apply from 11 June. According to the new price list, the minimal fare for normal buses is 7 to 4 km long and is followed by 9 for 4-12 km, 10 for 12-16 km and 11 for 16-20 km.
The new fare for 20-24 km is 12 for normal coach use. In the case of minibuses and specialised coaches, the increase will be 8 to 3 km for the price of minibuses, 9 to 3-6 km for the price of minibuses, 10 to 10 km for the price of minibuses and 11 to 10 to 16 km for the price of minibuses, according to the memo.
The Communication states that the taxable amount has been previously set at 30 out of 25. The taxi rate will be raised by 3 GS for every further 0.2 km (200 meters) and by 25 percent for AC taxi on all suggested fares for normal taxi.
The fare for trams was set at 6 km for distances of up to 4 km and 7 km for distances of up to 4 km. Tickets have also been issued for district transport, intra-state rapid transit, inter-state rapid transit and river transport. Previously, on June 6, Transport Minister Suvendu Adhikari had previously promised the ruling to increase the cost of buses by 1 Rh at each phase and to put a strain on the Centre for "the extra strain on ordinary citizens by raising the prices of gasoline and diesel".
It is the first increase in coach fare in the state after 2014. Currently a person has to travel four kilometres in a normal coach to cover the first leg of the journey paying 6 kilometres, while a person traveling in a minibus has to travel 7 kilometres for the first two kilometres.
