TSiVipul Posted June 25, 2011 Report Share Posted June 25, 2011 News channels have been boiling again on the hottest topic of the week.The rise in price of Diesel,LPG and Kerosene. With the increase in price of diesel it is estimated that there will be a good rise in the price of other goods too as the transportation price is increasing too. Yesterday night attended the Meerut transporters meet(being owner of a fleet)and the new rates were discussed there. New final rates will be decided in one day or two,till then we are instructed as follows:- For small pick-ups(Tata ace/207.M&M Genio etc):10-15% hike per km. Small trucks(Tata 407/608.AL comet/Cheetah etc):10-15% hike per km. Trucks(Two axle type)(Tata 1210/1510/1613 etc) about 10% hike per km. Three axle type trucks(Tata 2515 etc) 15-20% hike per km. Four axle type(Tata 3115 etc) about 15% hike per km. Haulers/Trailers etc will have 10-15% hike per km. Backhoe loaders(JCB etc) will now be available for Rs 800-850 per hour as compared to pre-hike Rs 700/hr. These rates translate at an increase of Rs 2-50 hike per km for different types of trucks,which is going to have some really serious effects.As well as there is a plan of the national truck owners association to stop the operations for a day or two or against the price hike. Now let's see how the diesel burns people's pockets but be sure that this is going to have a far bigger impact than that of petrol. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
