There is still no confirmation if there will be an increase in taxi fare as we have another significant rise in fuel prices from tomorrow.
The Fiji Taxi Association had earlier called for an increase from the current 10 cents to between 15 to 20 cents per 100 metres while the Fiji Cabbies Operators Association had asked for an increase to 30 cents for the same.
Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission CEO Joel Abraham had told Legend FM News that they have a duty of care to the Fijian people and any decision will not be taken lightly.
Abraham says they will ensure that whatever they decide is the correct reflection of what is happening on the ground.
Meanwhile the Taxi Association is currently in a meeting with the FCCC.
When contacted this afternoon, Cabbies Association General Secretary Sanjesh Lal says they have been trying to contact the FCCC for 2 weeks now and they are not aware of any meeting with them.
Lal says an increase in taxi fare is needed as soon as possible because of the constant rise in fuel prices.
