Tripura: High Court directs installation of point to point fares
AGARTALA: The High Court's Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Deepak Gupta and Justice Subhasish Talapatra has directed to install point-to-point fares along auto-permits. Alongwith this, the Court has asked the State Government of Tripura to allot distinct uniforms and badges to auto-owners.
Though the State Government and Transport department partially complied with other directions of the Court, yet the 'point-to-point fares' dictum was flouted. Thus, a 'Contempt of Court' case was filed against both the State Government and the Transport department.
In this perspective, the State Government's Transport Secretary, Joint Transport Commissioner and other officials of the Transport department was asked to appear before the Court and offer an explanation.
As per the direction, they appeared and claimed to unfathom the directions properly. Taking note of this, the Court gave them relief, However, it also directed the complainant party to file a case anew.
Pursuant to this, a hearing was witnessed and subsequently the aforementioned verdict has been pronounced.
