Guwahati: The fare of all commercial vehicles will increase to 50 per cent if the Assam government fails to solve the ongoing issues and demands of the Transport owners, said All Assam Motor Transport Association (AAMTA).
AAMTA decided to increase the fare after a meeting held by several transport associations in Tezpur on Sunday.
