Now, here’s some good news for anxious commuters using public transport in the city.

Metropolitan Transport Corporation (MTC) and operators of vans and share autorickshaws are unlikely to pass the burden of Friday’s diesel price hike to commuters.

A day after the Centre allowed State-run oil marketing companies (OMCs) to set diesel prices, Indian Oil and other OMCs hiked the price of diesel by 45 paise on Thursday.

This is expected to incur MTC an additional expenditure of Rs. 8 crore per month.
