KATHMANDU: Public transport entrepreneurs have demanded that the government adjust the transport fare in the aftermath of the increased price of petroleum products in the country.

They have warned that they would decide on the matter themselves if the government failed to address their demand by coming March 21.

The public transport fare was lately revised on October 13, 2021.

Entrepreneurs said the latest revision was done when diesel cost Rs 104 per liter, but now the price has jumped to Rs 133 per liter, prompting a fresh revise.

At a press meet in Kathmandu Sunday, Yogendra Nath Karmacharya, president of the Federation of Nepalese National Transport Entrepreneurs (FNNTE), said they would be compelled to adjust the price on their own if the government did not respond to their call by March 21.
