Nepali government is about to review public transportation fare within few days with regard to the government's commitment following the decrease in petroleum products.

Nepali Minister for Labour and Transport Management Lekh Raj Bhatta on Monday said that the public transportation fare will be reviewed within a week, local news website eKantipur reported.

Talking to the journalist at Biratnagar Airport, some 240 km southeast of Nepali capital Kathmandu, he said that the public fare will be reviewed by Jan. 28 as all the preparations have already been made.

Saying that the Transport Ministry has received a report about the transportation situation across the country, he said that the fare will be fixed as per the report, according to the report.

He further reiterated his commitment to implement the government-fixed public transportation fare with strictness.

Nepali students organizations were protesting against the government demanding adjustment in the public transportation fare across the country as government had reduced the fuel price based on international standard.

The students organizations are also demanding a 50 percent discount on public transportation fares nationwide. However, government has provided 45 percent discount on public transportation fare to students.

The Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) Ltd. had adjusted the petroleum products price based on international standard from Dec. 27, 2008.
