Gilgit, 12 March: Commuters have complained of overcharing by transport companies working in Gojal Valley. “All transporters have reduced fares except for those operating in Gojal Valley”, complained a passenger to this correspondent. The transporters charge Rs 140 per passenger on the Gilgit – Aliabad route, while Rs 250 is being charged on the Gilgit – Sost route.
This, according to the passengers, is unjust because normally the fare from Aliabad to Sost is Rs 60/65 per passengers. The relevant government officials have been asked to intervene and regulate transportation fares in the region.
