Team Udayavani, Apr 2, 2021, 10:47 AM IST

Bengaluru: Days after more than 3,000 drivers and workers of app-based taxis protested against the unfair competition they face with Ola and Uber players, the state transport department is planning to revise fares to 70% to 88%.

The new fares will come into effect immediately, now the commuters have to pay a minimum of Rs 75 for small cabs and Rs 150 on luxury taxis for the first 4km. Earlier, the rates were Rs 44 and Rs 80, respectively.

The previous tariff revision was in 2018.

The per-km tariff for journeys beyond 4km will have to be within the minimum and maximum fares prescribed for each class in the notification. The hike in per-km tariff is in the range of 35% to 75%.

The decision comes close on the heels of a driver immolating himself on March 30 over rising fuel costs and based on requests made by drivers.
