The Punjab Transport Department on Monday said its revenue in the first six months of this fiscal was 45 percent higher than that of the corresponding period of the last financial year.

In a statement issued here, Transport Minister Laljit Singh Bhullar said the department’s three wings – State Transport Commissioner, Pepsu Road Transport Corporation and Punjab Roadways – earned Rs 1,957.64 crore from April to September this fiscal.

This is 45.07 percent more than the same period of the previous financial year, he said.

Revenues of Rs 1,349.43 crore were collected in the corresponding period of the last fiscal.

He said the increase in revenue was seen due to the concerted efforts of the Bhagwant Mann government to fight tax evaders and operators plying buses without licences.
