The government has raised the ferry fare by 20 percent across the country in the wake of an increase in the price of fuel.
Chairman of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) Shamim Al Razi said that the new fare will be effective from today.
Earlier on June 16, the fare was increased by 20 percent due to a rise in fuel prices. With the latest hike, the fare was put up by more than 40 percent in two months.
