Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala government has granted approval to as many as 237 KSRTC buses, which are more than 15 years old, to operate within the state, despite the Centre's ban. The transport commissioner has issued an order extending the registration period of all KSRTC vehicles that have been in operation for over 15 years until September 2024.

As these changes could not be included on the central government’s Vahan software, the vehicles which are 15 years old cannot be registered in this software.

As per reports, KSRTC vehicles including 86 workshop vans, 30 jeeps, 8 tankers and double deckers shall receive the benefit of extension. Earlier, the central government had decided to dismantle government-owned vehicles that are more than 15 years old from April onwards.
