Stay Interim Hike in Daily Bus pass by 40%; 5 Directors opposing, Motives of Admin suspicious ! Commuters should Protest Strongly !
Its strange that a single sensible win-win decision of Daily Bus Pass at Rs 50/- has been changed by hike by 40 % to Rs 70/-
This was also not properly publicised/ informed to commuters.
Inspite of promises was not available with conductors. Inspite the daily pass sale must have increased.
Pmpml doesnt have info , as favoured E-ticketing server down and even February 2013 info not available even after 31 days,whereas the very purpose of eticketing is PMPML should get prompt/realtime info for timely proper decision for betterment of services.
The media quotes Director Prashant Jagtap," 5 directors are against this decision & will not allow next Board Meeting to be held.
Thanks Mr Director for showing guts. We only hope that this should not be just another hypocrasy and lip service.n all earlier meetings and public forums you have promised many thing, nothing has effectively succeeded except recruitment of 1300 conductors, its reported many of whom are sitting idle for want of allottment of duties.
We hereby request Hon Ajitdada, MPs, MLAs, Mlcs,and public service oriented corporators (sadly,who are the rare specie) to prevail upon PMPML ADMIN & MANAGEMENT to roll back the Bus Fare Hike fully. At he least the hike in Passes:
Daily bus pass Rs 50 hiked to Rs 70 ( 40 % hike)
Sept 2012 pass rates:
Senior Citizens: Daily pass Rs 25 hiked to 40 ( 60%)
Monthly pass Rs 300 to 450 (50 % )
Student pass : Monthly Rs 450 to Rs 600 ( 33.33 % )
General Monthly pass Rs 950 to Rs 1500 ( 58 % )
Sirs This clearly appears PMPML Admin is acting totally against interest of PMPML, commuters, citizens of pune & pimpri-chinchwad and environment, encouraging illegal transport and private vehicles.
The very base of fare hike higher diesel rates for bulk consumers.
Admin was deeply interested in purchasing at higher rates, whereas ST and other states Tamilnadu,Karnataka,Kerala were adopting and purchasing at lower rates.
Much reluctantly a weak FIR is filed against Eticket operator after follow up and media pressure; why admin protecting defrauding cotractor.,
This raises doubts about motives of PMPML Admin.
WE STRONGLY DEMAND AND REQUEST: Stay Interim Hike in Daily Bus pass by 40%; 5 Directors opposing, Motives of Admin suspicious ! Commuters should Protest Strongly .
