Ban comes on toll collection by bus terminal lessees


The government enforced a ban on toll collection by leaseholders of the Dhaka City Corporation (DCC) at three major inter-district bus terminals in the city from yesterday.

The ban was imposed to restore discipline to the transport sector and stop extortion at Mohakhali, Gabtali and Sayedabad bus terminals.

The decision was taken at the second meeting of a high-powered committee formed to stop illegal toll collection in the transport sector and resolve other problems, an official handout said.

The meeting was presided over by Chairman of the committee and Communications Minister Nazmul Huda.

The meeting directed the law-enforcement agencies to implement the government decision.
