Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Thursday informed the Assembly that the bus fare in the state has to be increased as motor vehicle industry has been badly affected due to price hike of petrol and diesel.

Bus owners associations have already requested the Government to hike the bus fare and there is no alternative other than increasing the fare, the Chief Minister said while replying to a calling attention in this regard.

Meanwhile, the Government is also planning to take a decision in this regard in the next Cabinet meeting. The recent indefinite strike call by bus owner associations was withdrawn after getting assurance from Ramachandran Commission over a possible price hike, he added.
