No decision has been taken yet about the increase of the railway fare, said Railway Minister Md Nurul Islam Sujon on Tuesday.
“After the price hike of fuel, we are thinking about the increase of rail fare as already many organisations have coordinated the price with the fuel price. Still we do not take any decision,” he said while visiting the Joydebpur Rail Junction in Gazipur, reports UNB.
The 30-kilometre four-rail line work from Kamalapur to Tongi and 12-kilometre double rail line work from Tongi-Joydebpur, involving Tk 13 billion (1300 crore), have been going on in full swing.
The double rail tracks from Gazipur’s Tongi to Joydebpur will be operational in December this year, said Railway Sujon.
He also visited the construction works of double rail tracks from Tongi to Joydebpur.
