Cancellation of registration, route permit if excess bus fares charged
The road transport and bridges ministry has ordered to cancel the registration and route permit for the public transport if people related to the transport sector do not obey the health guidelines and would charge excess bur fares during the ongoing corona situation.

A letter has been issued on Tuesday on behalf of the road transport and highways division giving the directions to the Chairman of Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA).

Public transport movement has resumed on June 1 after increasing 60 percent fares. But there were widespread allegations of charging excess bus fares and about not following the government approved health guidelines.

In this context the letter was issued where it was said that limited plying of public transport began under some conditions set by the government. Recently some news media reported that excess bus fares are charged and also health guidelines are not followed. The letter mentioned reports of a national daily and said that these are violation of Road Transport Act-2018 and also punishable offences.

In this situation BRTA Chairman was asked to take action under the act by initiating mobile courts and cancelling registration and route permit for the public transports.

On the other hand Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Tuesday at a program said, those who charge excess fares in this crisis moment will be treated as the public enemy.
