IMPHAL, June 30: The All India Youth Federation, (AIYF) Manipur state council, has urged the government to promulgate fixed rate fare for all vehicles plying in the state.
The federation in a press communiqué stated that it is unfortunate that with no official fixation of fare the private passenger vehicles servicing in the state are charging the passengers at their own will.
It pointed out that there are many vehicles charging 10 rupees within 0 km.
It has further drawn the attention of the government and the concerned authority to regulate a genuine fare for all the vehicles in consideration with the current average economy and bind all the vehicles to comply with it.
It contended that charging passengers with the rate of individual capacity taking advantages of the passenger’s helplessness is liable to take action upon per the law.
It urged the authority concerned to give clarification in this regard and also to take up necessary measures to control the menace.
