Sikkim: ASNT to revert to old fares during Dashain festival

GANGTOK:

The All Sikkim Nationalised Transport (ASNT) buses have decided to revert to the old fares during the Dasain festival, after Sikkim Progressive Youth Forum (SPYF) had protested.

General Manager of ASNT, Karma Namgyal Bhutia informed that the 1.8 times hike in fares will not be charged for the ongoing festival period till November 1.

This relaxation comes in the wake of the demand raised by Sikkim Progressive Youth Forum seeking that fares be reverted to the regular rates, more routes opened for SNT buses and limits on passenger carriage be lifted.

The 50% limit on seating capacity will, however, continue to be applied.
