The Delhi Contract Bus Association has again threatened to discontinue bus services provided to several schools in the city from March 1 onwards, saying they cannot meet five of the 23 new permit conditions laid down by the government.
The transport department had taken out a public notice on the new permit conditions on January 25, after the gang rape incident in the city which took place aboard a moving bus on December 16. Contract carriage bus owners were given time till March 1 to comply with new permit conditions.
The association claims five of the conditions are impractical. These mainly relate to the educational qualifications of drivers and conductors.
Ramakant Goswami said that the issues would be dealt with by next week. "The association has already met with the CM and transport commissioner. I will meet with the contract carriage bus associations, federation of schools, traffic police and Delhi police next week to find a solution,'' Goswami said.
