PMPML authorities had sent a proposal to RTA a week ago and it was approved within a week. The decision to increase the price of bus pass was criticised by all sections of society, and after Mundhe’s transfer, PMPML prepared a proposal to reduce the price at the recently held board of directors meeting.
