RTC has hiked the price of a 24-hour T24 ticket on Greater Hyderabad City buses which is available for Rs 100 until now. Authorities issued orders raising it to Rs 120. Officials said the inflated price had come into effect from Friday. The T-24 ticket will allow passengers to travel anywhere in a city in a single day for just 100 Rupees until now.
This is not applicable to AC buses. In many cases in the past, the ticket was given a 20 percent discount and the popularity of the passengers did not go down even after the discount was canceled. So, RTC believes that this hike will not hinder the popularity of the ticket with the passengers.
The authorities say that the prices of tickets and passes have also gone up recently, leading to an increase in T-24 ticket charges. But then, this development has come immediately after Central Government had cut down the excise duty on Diesel which should have naturally brought down the prices. But here, TSRTC actually increased the prices.
