Operators have also been adamant on demand for increase in existing fares. If that fare is not increased, the Punjab government should give the bus operators to be filled with taxes every month.

The government has to pay a tax of Rs 2.86 x 320 = 915.20 per day and Rs 23795 per month at 26 days. Operators are demanding to reduce the same tax from Rs 2.86 to Rs 1.
