The provincial government has decided to increase the fares of the vehicles plying in the province as the federal government has recently increased the public bus fares by up to 14 per cent owing to a continuous increase in the fuel prices.

Following the hike, the passengers will be required to pay the following in the case of the Kathmandu valley:

SN Distance Old fares New fares
1 0-5 km Rs 18 Rs 20
2 0-10 km Rs 23 Rs 25
3 0-15 km Rs 27 Rs 30
4 0-20 km Rs 30 Rs 33
5 20 km + Rs 35 Rs 38

Meanwhile, the ministry also increased the taxi fares.
