Kolkata, Jan 13 (IANS) West Bengal would review bus and taxi fares when the central government reduces fuel prices, Transport Minister Sunbhas Chakraborty said here Tuesday.”The government of India has not issued any notification so far. But once they issue it, we’ll definitely review the bus and taxi fares in our state,” Chakraborty told reporters.
“We’ll revise the fares of public transport in West Bengal within just one day from the time the notification will be declared,” he said.
Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Murli Deora last week said the government was working on a price cut and would announce the new rates within 10 or 15 days.
