I went to tirupathi using public APSRTC transportation. The bus fare from chennai to tirupathi is 83 rupees.While travelling from Chennai to tirupathi on 21july2012,the driver collected Rs.260 for 3 adult tickets. While returning back on 22july2012 from tirupathi to chennai in the same bus, the driver collected rs.420 for 3 adults.He said the ticket fare is 140 per adult.Though the ticket fare is mentioned as Rs.83 in the ticket he manipulated the total, He mentioned 3 adult and 3 child in th ticket and arrived at a total of rs.393. When we enquired about this descrepancy. He said the that is the rate on sundays as per the mangment direction.if we are buying it he gave us option of getting down from the bus.
I believe that the APSRTC managment is not involved only the driver plying the bus are doing this looting.
Will the APSRTC management tke action on this.
