Jamshedpur 18 June 2018: 50 Buses were provided to the Jamshedpur city a few years ago under the JNNURM and out of these 50 only 4-6 Buses are being used in the city.
Rest 45 Buses are getting junked for many years.
These city buses together worth crores of rupees.
These 50 Buses were first bought for Jharkhand Tourism Development Corporation but things did not go as per plan and the buses were transferred to Jamshedpur city to be used as local city buses.
A more serious issue is that back on 24 February 2010, An order was issued by the transport commissioner to hold the permit of auto rickshaw and other public transport vehicles on city route so that these buses can be used.
Till now the new permits are not being issued to the auto rickshaw in the urban areas of Jamshedpur and due to this reason, most of the auto rickshaw in Jamshedpur get the permit from the rural area of the city.
In these past years, these buses are getting junk which could have been used to provide better public transport service to the people of the city.
