Rohtak, April 25
Non-public transporters are doing a roaring enterprise in Rohtak metropolis as of late with manufacturing facility employees and others making a beeline to their native villages, fearing an entire lockdown within the coming days.
The transporters, who’ve put up hoardings comparable to “Bihar bus service”, “Rohtak to Bihar” in industrial areas and different localities, are charging far more than the conventional fares from such commuters.
“Over 600 labourers have been migrating every day through personal buses on the fee of Rs 1,800-2,000 per head, which is round double the conventional fare. Hundreds of labourers have migrated from Rohtak to date,” mentioned Sanjeev Singh, chief of building employees and joint secretary of the Purvanchal Ekta Sewa Samiti.
Seats on these buses could be booked by dialling the cellphone numbers talked about on the hoardings. The fare is collected on the time of boarding the bus.
Eight to 9 buses carrying migrants depart for Bihar and UP from new vegetable market, Jind bypass, Hisar bypass and Delhi bypass every day. A transporter mentioned they charged round Rs 1,800 from each commuter, whereas these in Delhi had been charging Rs 2,500-3,500.
One other transporter mentioned, “It’s round Rs 2,000 as of late and is more likely to rise to Rs 3,000-3,500 in Might as there’s a robust chance of an entire lockdown after the West Bengal ballot,” he added.
ADC Mahendra Pal, nevertheless, mentioned the problem was not in his data. “Motion will probably be taken in opposition to the transporters if they’re charging greater than regular fare,” he added.
