Just a wild thought.
What if our RSTA does not fix taxi and bus fares? Because I think doing so limits competition, which is bad for the general public. Let the drivers decide. Who knows the rates might come down even below the ceiling fixed by the authority? And this is good for the people because then they will choice to ride the cabs that offer them the best prices. They can negotiate with the rates too.
Instead can we control and fix house rents like taxi and bus fares? House rent fixation is solely left to the whims and fancies of the house owners unmonitored.
This is something we need to ponder.
