Delhi Govt. & Punjab Govt. Bus Battle
Jalandhar [Manupala Sharma]. Punjab Roadways – Battle of PRTC and Delhi Government, Badal family is making a personal family of Indochondian, which is earning big money at the Delhi airport. Due to the indifference of the Punjab Government, Delhi Government did not start Indira Gandhi International Airport (IIIG), Delhi, Volvo even after one week. In the strength of the passengers, passengers have to reach Punjab by paying 2.5 times more than the Volvo bus on the road.
The Delhi government has stopped operating Volvo bus service by refusing to give any valid permit at the airport near Punjab Roadways. On the other hand, the Punjab government could not implement the official official official options of Volvo operation by its officials. Consequently, 10 million people are crying and losing every day on the roads of Indo-Canadian roads.
Indo-Kanadan running on tourist permit could not get road permit
Indo-Canadian buses are reaching Delhi airport on a tourist permit, while roadways have to shut down their luxury buses. However, officials of Punjab Roadways and PRTC need to implement minimum 3 tourist permits (two Punjab roadways and 1 PRTC) for running a Volvo bus for the Delhi airport. The tourism permit is to be issued by the Punjab government, but it is not surprising that it is not being released.
Private bus operators operating the buses at the Delhi airport are also violating the tourist permit. A group of travelers can be taken to the tourist permit destination. Under this permit, the ticket per passenger can not be deducted and can not be stopped on the way and passengers can go in the bus. Private operators carry passengers from almost every station on the Delhi highway and tickets are cut, but no action is being taken on them.
Roadway officials suggested different options
PRTC officials suggested various options to resume the Volvo bus service. First of all, make a compromise agreement with the Delhi government, which is closed since 1974. Secondly, the Delhi government should be persuaded to start a bus stand at the airport so that the operation of Volvo starts from the airport bus stand. Officials had also suggested the option of starting a Volvo bus service with a tourist permit on the lines of private operators, but the government did not take any decision.
11 million buses per month, 10 million private operators, earning three times
Punjab Roadways was earning around 10 million rupees per month in the operation of the 11 Volvo bus from Delhi airport, which has shut down Volvo. On the contrary, private operators are earning three times more due to higher fares than Punjab Roadways. Punjab Roadways used to charge Rs 1,085 per passenger from Jalandhar to IGI, while the private operator was charging 2600 rupees.
