Kochi: The Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has decided to resolve the hygiene-related complaints about the buses. The decision was taken after receiving several complaints from the drivers, conductors and passengers.
In most of the garages, the order of the CMD to clean the vehicle before starting service is not being followed properly. The irresponsible attitude of the garage employees is one of the main reasons for the unhygienic condition of the buses.
In small depots, the workers clean them properly and regularly as there are a very few buses. But in larger depots, where there are a lot of buses, cleaning is just customary at times. The passengers have complained that the platform, seats, window shutters, driver cabin and the rear glass of the buses are not cleaned properly.
Following this, the authorities have decided to take disciplinary action against the concerned employees in the respective depots if they received any complaint along with photos or videos of the buses with unhygienic conditions.
