Srinagar, Mar 16 (UNI) The Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service has fetched a revenue of Rs 8.71 lakh from its launch on April 7 last year to February 2006, an official spokesman said today.

He said the Jammu and Kashmir State Road Transport Corporation (JKSRTC) was operating fortnightly 19-seater four AC Ashok Leyland Stag coaches on the 170-km Srinagar-Muzaffarabad Road, also known as the Jhelum Valley road, up to the Kaman Post near the Line of Control (LoC).

The cross-border bus service has fetched a gross revenue of Rs 8.71 lakh to the JKSRTC up to February this year, he added.

Initially, the spokesman said Rs 600 were charged per passenger which included lunch and porter charges.

However, after the devastating earthquake on October 8 last year, the rates were lowered and the passengers were charged Rs 500 each, he added.
