Students using the ropeway will get 50 percent discount

Guwahati, June 18 (HS). Due to the severe flood situation in the Brahmaputra river, traffic between North Guwahati and Guwahati located on the southern bank of Brahmaputra has been badly affected. Due to this, the difficulties of the students coming to Guwahati for studies from North Guwahati have increased a lot.

In view of the rising water level, the Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) has announced a concession for college-going students using the Guwahati Ropeway. Starting Tuesday, students will be able to avail 50 per cent discount on travel fares for the next 30 days. To avail this discount, students will have to produce a valid college ID card at the ticket counter.
