Kochi: The Kerala High Court has decided not to take any immediate action on a petition challenging the regulations regarding the issuance of long-distance permits to private buses. As per the current motor vehicle scheme, these permits are limited to a maximum distance of 140 kilometers. The government approved this scheme on May 3 this year.

In a response to the regulation, private bus owners who could not renew their permits had approached the high court. However, Justice C S Dias who considered their petition refused to issue a stay order on the newly implemented motor vehicle scheme. The court opined that it did not find the plea reasonable under current circumstances.
