Mangalore, December 11: Dakshina Kannada Deputy Commissioner Subodh Yadav said he would look into the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) application to the District Transport Authority seeking permission to operate city bus service on 74 routes.

About the KSRTC’s plea being pending for 75 days, Mr. Yadav said: “I will look into it. So far it has not come to my notice. Such proposals, which benefit people, should not be pending for a long time.”


Explaining the delay, he said the District Transport Authority meetings were not held on a regular basis. The previous meeting was held two months ago.


During the meetings there would be cases remanded to the authority by the courts. These cases, which were old ones, took time and the new ones could not be attended to. “We are trying to work out ways by which the authority can quickly redress issues before it,” Mr. Yadav said.


The Karnataka Dalit Sangarsha Samiti on Wednesday had said that the KSRTC’s city bus service would bring relief to harried commuters, who were forced to live with irregular private bus service. The private buses did not operate beyond 10 p.m. and caused hardship, especially to those coming to Mangalore from other cities, it had contended.


Mr. Yadav said the district administration was considering dumping of construction material at site near Pumpwell Circle where the KSRTC bus-stand was proposed to come up.


The administration wanted to earmark a place where the waste generated from the ongoing development works taken up by the Government could be dumped.


This space would be provided to the construction agencies, who had been disposing the waste next to roads.
