Thiruvananthapuram | The state cabinet meeting today is expected to take several important decisions. It is learned that a meeting chaired by the Chief Minister may decide on the hike in bus and auto-taxi fares. Transport Minister Antony Raju had yesterday announced that the fare hike would be implemented.
The report on the hike will be considered by the official level committee and the file on the hike will be considered by the cabinet. The main issue is whether to allow the increase to be implemented in excess of the additional charges imposed during the Kovid period.
The plan is to increase the bus fare to a minimum of Rs. It is learned that the Cabinet will also consider whether the reduced distance limit for the minimum charge will be reinstated.
