It  was a nice move to see that the Consumer Council advocate (Premila Kumar), make a strong impact towards reducing the E-ticketing registration fee from $10, down to $2.
The $2 rate can be said to be inexpensive to all classes of the population, but don’t they see that this will be a struggle to individuals who live below the poverty line in trying to top-up their card of $2 above, despite their plan on travelling on a distance of stage 2, costing them 70 cents only.
So it can be seen that this movement is only resulting in the increase in struggles and burdens put towards the below par population who find difficulties in trying to make end meets for their transportation, resulting in them foregoing other important allocated capital for family benefits.
