GUWAHATI: The Assam state cabinet on October 21 approved a 25 percent increase in bus fare.

It is to be mentioned that earlier, the All Assam motor transport association (AAMTA) announced to increase the fares to 40 percent owing to the hike in fuel prices. However, later the association and the state government arrived at a compromise which saw bus fares to be increased by 25 percent from the current price.

The new fare is yet to be disclosed by the association as per the routes.

On October 3, the All Assam Motor Transport Association (AAMTA) called for a 24-hour Chakka Bandh to fulfil their demands.
