Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) has recommended cancellation of the route permit of 25 bus companies in the capital for repeatedly overcharging passengers and violating rules.
A list of companies was sent to Dhaka Metro Regional Transport Committee with the recommendation on Thursday, said BRTA officials.
The BRTA made the move as executive magistrates found that the buses of the companies were violating rules again and again by overcharging passengers.
The executive magistrates made the list of the buses as per their findings.
BRTA started conducting mobile court drives in the capital after the government increased the fares of diesel-run buses by 27 percent to adjust the hike in fuel prices.
The executive magistrates have found huge irregularities and evidence of overcharging the passengers.
The BRTA mobile courts fined a total of 1,408 buses Tk 5.7 million between Oct 8 and Dec 9.
