LAHORE - The Lahore High Court chief justice on Tuesday allowed implementation of a summary approved by the Punjab chief minister with regard to the fares of transport services. Earlier the secretary transport produced the summary before the court during the hearing of a suo moto case against unauthorised increase in fares by the urban transport services. The secretary told the court the transport authority after getting suggestions from all stakeholders had made a proposal for fixing the fares. The proposed fares were: from zero to 4km (Rs12), 4.1 to 8km (Rs15), 8.1 to 14km (Rs18), 14.1 to 22km (Rs22) and 22.1 to above (Rs25). However, he said, the chief minister ordered further reduction in the proposed fares which are: Rs11, 15, 17, 20 and 22 respectively. The chief justice observed the chief minister was an elected representative of public and he would have approved the fares while considering all the problems faced by the masses. We allow the summary which has been approved by the Punjab chief minister and direct that all the bus owners and transporters would act upon the summary. If any party violates, he will be dealt in accordance with law, the chief justice wrote in his order while disposing of the suo moto case. The CJ had taken suo moto notice when the transporters had increased the minimum one-stop fare from Rs10 to Rs15 and the maximum fare from Rs30 to Rs35 without any official notification.
