Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 15: A conductor of an electric-bus of Jammu and Kashmir State Road Transport Corporation (JKSRTC) plying on the Central University of Jammu campus Raya to Amphalla, has been charging exorbitant fare from the students, forcing them to pay full-fare even for travelling half the distance.
Students of CUJ informed Early Times that on the demand of students and CUJ administration, SRTC had deputed an electric, which made one trip in the morning and one trip from Amphalla to CUJ campus, in the evening.
The fair of the bus is Rs. 30 from CUJ to Amphalla and the students have been paying the same fare as SRTC has not been providing any concession. The CUJ students have not objected to denial of concession in fare, despite concession to them in other private buses across the routes of Jammu region.
“Initially the students have been paying Rs. 30 for full journey from CUJ campus to Amphalla and different fare for Satwari to CUJ campus and Bari Brahmana to CUJ campus”, students said, adding that but whenever a particular conductor of the bus has been charging fare, he forced them to pay full fare, even if some student board the bus from Satwari, Kunjwani or Bari Brahmana.
“We have been forced by that particular conductor to pay Rs. 30 for travelling Satwari or Kunjwani or Bari Brahmana to CUJ campus. When some students raise voice against this inappropriate practice, that particular conductor asked us to talk higher authorities”, the students said, adding that even the conductor threaten to cancel the bus service, if they raise voice.
The students further informed that but when another conductor was in the bus, he charged different fare for different stops. “The SRTC has not pasted any fare list on anywhere in the bus, which is mandatory for the bus as well as matador operators, which is another violation”, the students castigated, adding that they were sure that the administration was kept in dark by the conductor, who has been looting the students for his own gains.
Officials of SRTC, Electric buses, Reyaz Mehmood said that the fare for different stations was different and SRTC conductors have been charging as per the rate-list. “No conductor can charge extra fare from the students”, he said, adding that he was unaware of the matter and would definitely take proper action over the complaints of the students.
