The Appeal Court ordered the Attorney General to submit a report whether the National Transport Commission has the authority to increase bus fares.

The order was given after considering a fundamental rights petition filed by the Lanka Private Bus Owners Association that challenged the recent bus fare increase by the National Transport Commission.

The Court also ordered to summon respective parties to the case on the 17th of January next year when the petition was considered today by Appeal Court Judges Anil Gunarathna and Malani Gunarathna.

The judges enquired the National Transport Commission whether it has the authority to increase bus fares.

Later the Court ordered the Attorney General to ascertain whether the National Transport Commission has been vested with powers through a Cabinet paper to revise bus fares.
